John commenced with HB in 1978 as a Trade’s Assistant. Working on the front line of civil construction in the Northern Territory, John has a ground-up understanding of the business from laying pipes and operating excavation machinery to working in remote areas and administering contracts.
This knowledge and experience has enabled John to make significant contributions to civil works in the Northern Territory and to the expansion of the company into the development of the HB concrete plants and their investment in HB quarry.
Even with the huge growth of HB, as a Director, John remains grounded in his approach. The company has grown from 20 to 150 staff and John is always looking to improve and promote what he does. It is a successful man indeed who can carry his position without burden.
