George is a qualified chef and for many years ran kitchens and foodservice operations for massive functions. Eventually he handed in the apron and went on to support aspiring chefs.  George has always been handy around the house and shares our love for timber. He is excited to learn all about our industry and support our apprentices and trainees.
