Delegate AWCINSW Director, Director EW Linings

I have been involved in the wall & ceiling industry since the early 1990’s when I was employed by Boral.  Soon after I decided to join my fathers contracting business E&W Linings.  My father was an experienced and admired plasterer – I was fortunate to learn the ropes early from him.

Having been a member of the AWCINSW for many years, I decided to join the NSW Executive.  My main aim is to give back to the industry that I feel so strongly about.  The AWCINSW is all about its members –   The Plasterer.  As a plasterer, we all need support, guidance, or reference at some point in time.  The AWCINSW has a very strong understanding of what the plasterer needs, and it has the right people in place to assist members.

One of my proudest achievements is the contracting business I have, with Dad still involved in the business and putting his trust into my wife & I to continue to carry on what he started all those years ago – a plastering business that provides quality workmanship, a service which is second to none and great relationships with people.
