I am the proprietor and founder of CCS and I am heavily engaged in all aspects of the business. You will regularly find me on the tools, sharing the workload and leading by example.
I am involved in the planning, co-ordination and implementation of every project, both onsite and behind the scenes. I am also responsible for client liaison, quoting, quality management, standards assurance and start to finish communications.
I manage a small team of people and work closely with like-minded contractors to ensure work is completed safely, efficiently, diligently and to an agreed standard.
I have a varied background including studies and an early career in catering & hospitality management, sales and account management; corporate account management and complex solutions project management. Later, I travelled the Middle East, Asia and South East Asia as International Partnership Manager for a Health and Safety related company.
Having worked extensively in small business and large corporate sectors, I am keen to bring the best of both service styles and capabilities, to our clients in the Great Southern.

In my opinion, communication is a supremely important part of reaching outcomes successfully. I have completed many communication skills courses, and have also practiced as a life/performance coach.
I really enjoy solving problems, taking complex information and then relaying it in a clear and easy to understand fashion. I also love engaging in creative processes, thinking out side the box and doing what I can to add value for my clients.
Experience has taught me the importance of planning and preparation; focusing on the objectives, communicating with stakeholders, clearly, openly and frequently, and the value of hard work performed methodically.
On moving and starting a family in Denmark, I started a gardening and maintenance services business. This developed further as I was requested to take on various landscaping, building and construction projects.
With a young family, focus on the longer-term future, and sustainability, takes on a new emphasis. I am keen to lead a relaxed and happy lifestyle, here in Denmark, contributing to the community with my wife and two kids.
In the Great Southern I would like to see better infrastructure, and better access to specialist services. I would like to see the region continue and grow into a mecca for good food, good wine and a great lifestyle.
Globally, I hope the future will bring more sustainability and accountability across all growth industries. I would like to see decisions being made, and actions taken for the greater good of people and our environment, rather than for greed and money. Especially, I would like to see more positive mentoring and support for children and their health, as they are the future.
On my days off, I enjoy working with wood, designing and making things, trail bike riding (enduro), fishing and 4WD – I like all things adventure based! I love learning and exploring whilst spending time with family.
