Message from the Managing Director

I have over 30 years of experience in the fire and electrical businesses both across Australia and overseas in industries from petro-chemical, mining, logistics, manufacturing production, mechanical, pharmaceutical, aged care, education/schools, logistics, transport and a range of commercial office sites for global and local organisations.

I have a technical background and I am a registered commercial builder and an A Grade electrician. I also hold various licenses and accreditations in the fire and electrical industries. This means that I do not just run the company; I know the technical and regulatory requirements.

I have built a niche market offering with the objective to provide the most cost effective and quality essential services for business. My business philosophy is for myself and my team to continue to grow skills in this field by keeping up to date with new and emerging technologies and products.

I source products and equipment that will meet Australian standards and be of a high quality. Maintaining the highest level of service and safety benefits all our valued clients.

As an employer, I appreciate and value the team at FICO. I ensure they are supported and developed by providing excellent working conditions and ongoing training as well as access to a wellness program that is critical at this challenging time.
