Brand Manager - Cabot's
I joined DuluxGroup in July 2009 on a part time basis in the Cabot's business while finishing my last semester at the University of Melbourne. It was a fantastic entry into the marketing function and hardware industry.
As part of the DuluxGroup Graduate program I moved throughout the Dulux Retail Marketing team and have spent the last year working for the Dulux New Zealand business as Dulux Trade Brand Manager.
It was a fantastic opportunity to experience a new country with very different market dynamics. I have just returned to Australia and am currently the Brand Manager for Cabot's.
“DuluxGroup is a fantastic company to be a part of. It has a great culture where you feel welcomed & encouraged to challenge ideas. Involvement in the graduate program has also been a privilege.”
Now, two years down the line, I have worked across three different sites over two geographical areas i.e. Melbourne and Brisbane.
Currently, I am a Project Engineer working at the Rocklea site (Brisbane) running capital projects focused mainly around forklift fatality and fire risk prevention on site.
One of the highlights of my career so far at DuluxGroup has been, being awarded the Annual Barncastle Award in 2012 for a project that I carried out during my work at the Cabot’s / Protective Coatings site.
"If you have the drive to further your career and develop your skill sets with a safety mindset - DuluxGroup is a company where you can realise your potential.”
Yates Technology Manager
I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry and started my working career as an analyst in an Environmental Laboratory testing soils and waters for heavy metals, pesticides and nutrients.
During this time I found a passion for compliance and moved to a company that manufactured Veterinary pharmaceuticals in the role of Quality Assurance Officer.
This role lead me to Yates as the Quality Assurance Manager evolving into a role as Selleys Yates Operations Support Manager following the integration of the Selleys and Yates business units. Two years ago I moved into my current role as Yates Technology Manager.
“I manage a team of very talented, knowledgeable and passionate people and I love seeing them strive to obtain the best business outcome in all the challenges that are faced.”
