Waternish Engineering / Managing Director
Simon White is Managing Director of construction firm Waternish Engineering, which specialises in design and construction services in the water industry in SA and across Australia.
He began working in the family-owned business as a labourer, slowly progressing to his current role in 2006.
Simon says over that time Waternish has grown to win key projects interstate and secure long-term program partnerships in South Australia.
He says he’s especially proud to have taken the business from a three-person company in 2004 with a turnover of less than $2 million to a sustainable business of 38 people and $18 million today.
Trymoss Engineering / CEO
While working in the oil and gas industry, Stephen Moss noted a large amount of technology was outdated and there was a lot of room for expansion.
He set out to design a new friction reduction tool that would help reduce torque and drag during the oil and gas exploration drilling process.
After years of research and development, he was able to bring The Centrefire to market, taking the technology to the USA to test.
He says the product’s success means it’s being used in the US, Canadian and Australian markets today.
ResVu / Managing Director
After starting his working career as an accountant Tom Welsby quickly shifted into the strata management sector, founding his own company and working as a contractor to one of Australia’s largest strata firms.
He developed a software product, ResVu, built to improve resident communication across his high-density communities under management.
Seven years after starting his strata management company, Tom left the business to focus solely on ResVu.
He says it’s since become a white-label software product for strata companies, handling the end-to-end customer service channels, including communication, committee management, maintenance workflows, contractor tracking and data analytics.
