Our GM Andrew has been with us for a while… since he left school in fact!
Now heading up the Plum Heating and Cooling team, Andrew has done a bit of everything within the business and says he’s dedicated to helping the business grow and continue to employ local, western suburbs people.
“I left school in Year 10 when I turned 16 and knew I wanted to get a plumbing apprenticeship; I’d decided to just ring around all the local businesses to see what I could organise and luckily the first call I made was to Plum,” says Andrew.
“So, I started here in 2000 as an apprentice plumber, helping to install heating and cooling systems, dealing with customers and making sure they were happy with our work.”
“By 2004 I had completed my apprenticeship and became a registered plumber, running my own team for 7 years, so I’ve had about 11 years on heating and evaporative cooling installation, so I know it pretty well by now.”
“In 2011 I moved into sales, designing and quoting systems for a range of customers from domestic split system air conditioners right through to large commercial jobs; then, at the start of 2016, the opportunity came up to move into the general manager’s role which I felt ready to tackle.”
Andrew says the best part of the job is the great team at Plum, working in an environment that values strong communication and supports each member of staff.
“I love helping to train others, learning new things and improving my leadership skills… but my favourite part of the job is helping customers find the heating and cooling solutions they’re looking for.”
Andrew is based at the Plum Heating and Cooling showroom on Wallace Avenue, Point Cook and can be contacted on 03 8360 9622.
