I was raised in Western Queensland and by a happy accident ended up studying Interior Design at Uni. Following graduation I worked in a bathroom showroom and have always found the hard finishing aspect of design the most interesting. I noticed that customer's who I had assisted with bathroom products almost always mentioned how much they wished I could advise/sell them tiles. I saw an opportunity at the age of 23 I opened the doors and Elite was born.
We have evolved and grown over the past 21 years and become an importer for some of the most exciting and innovative factories in Europe.
I love the challenges that business gives me, I am lucky to have a group of hardworking loyal staff, I love that we are always moving forward.
In my spare time I love to be a mum and everything that involves.
I have had a varied background from breeding & judging stud cattle, intensive agriculture and university doing Fine Arts including a stint in Paris.
Like all the team, we have multiple roles, but my main focus is on design/re-working plans, sketches to help clients visualize design concepts and problem solving complex installation issues.
Being involved with Elite (and Michele) since the business was first established; we have grown and lifted our vision along the way.
Outside of work, I enjoy many things, but regularly find time to chase snapper in Moreton bay
I started working for Elite whilst studying for my Landscape Architecture degree in 1996 and have never left – I’m a sucker for punishment. I have no official role at Elite as I look after just about everything – sales, purchasing, pricing, logistics, administration etc + more. My greatest passion, other than my wife and kids, is golf - I’m out there every weekend trying to improve my game.
Denise came from a finance background, however, luckily she saw the light and decided to change careers in 2007. She has always had a passion for art and design, and has spent the last few years studying interior design while simultaneously working in luxury showrooms selling bathroom, tiling, and kitchen products. Denise is our showroom consultant and happily assists clients with their tile and bathroom selections.
When not at work, Denise loves eating out, spending time at the beach, dabbling in painting and won't say no to the odd espresso martini or two!
With over twenty years experience behind the scenes in administration in carpet/flooring and bathware industry "carrying the spare bike" for the peloton. Madonna is the go-to girl who knows where the hard-to-find can be found whilst balancing the everyday run-of-the-office, sales and the trivial.
When not at work, Madonna is doing one of many things, lying on the "chaise-longue" eating bons-bons while watching classic old movies; reading mystery novels; a handicraft of some sort is always on the go, or just simply lounging by the pool drinking cocktails.
It's a Dance-Off Bro!
