Commercial Business Manager, Energy Smart Water

Originally trained as a Plumber Gasfitter at Victoria’s Gas & Fuel Corporation my career path then progressed to one of the leading Australian water heating manufacturers initially as a Commercial Sales Managers role and then into other positions including International Technical Manager and eventually Training Manager. I’ve been involved and seen many changes and technical advances during my time in the Plumbing and Commercial Water Heating Industry namely the focus on renewable energy and its impact in the commercial and domestic Plumbing sectors.

My current role is with Commercial Hot Water & Maintenance who have an office here in Sydney under the group banner of Thermal Energy Solutions. The name tells the story as to our focus on heating water from many and varied methods with an aim to create and hold energy yields from various sources including PV solar, ground and air sourced heat pumps and other more traditional uses of natural gas and electrical power supplies.

As the water heating sector of the Plumbing and Building industry continues to develop and evolve, providing flexible energy sourced solutions is the key to future buildings with smart yield opportunities.



What the Australian construction industry is saying about Sydney Build...

  • The Perfect Hire team and I thought the expo was fantastic. There was a great mix of people walking through looking at the exhibitions and we have gained a lot of quality leads due to this. We did not hesitate to sign up for the following year when approached to do so.
    Perfect Hire
  • This expo has 100 percent given us very goods leads we could follow up on. This is the best form of marketing we’ve done so far. We’ve been able to connect with leads that are usually very difficult to get in contact with. We’re definitely coming back next year.
    High Exposure
  • The show has a good variety of content including conference, summit and the exhibition itself. We got some quality leads as well. We will definitely come again next year.
  • I just wanted to say to you and the team, great job on an excellent event. I'd been in years before and this one was by far the best. You had great traffic. I was actually surprised. I'm definitely interested in a bigger speaking role next year and I'll likely exhibit.
