Meet the Team


 

M I C H E L E

After growing up in far Western Queensland where indoor plumbing was non existent, it is quite ironic that I now own and operate a company which prides itself in providing the most quality bathware and tiles imported from brands based all over the world.

As a young aspiring 23 year old interior designer I saw an opportunity and opened the doors for a future I could not have foreseen in the form of Elite Bathware & Tiles. 29 years later Elite has evolved into a premier supplier to both the building industry and everyday retail.

While the business holds its many challenges I cherish the relationships it has provided me with. From our suppliers to our customers and staff, these relationships have left me with many lifelong friends.

During my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, painting, cooking and travelling - all of which are usually accompanied by drinking a nice bottle of champagne.

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 visualise 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 began my career with Elite Bathware & Tiles whilst studying for my Landscape Architecture degree over 20 years ago. I love the atmosphere and camaraderie  that we have in the workplace and have stayed on even after completing my studies. My role is quite varied as it involves sales, purchasing, logistics and administrative duties. We have a wonderful team environment which enables me to offer support, expertise and guidance whenever required. We hope to offer a wonderful result for our customers that both they and we can all be proud of.

I love hanging out with my mates in my spare time playing golf and generally having a good time. I love the social aspect of golf and play as often as possible. We often travel together overseas to pursue greener fairways and cultural experiences. In particular, I love visiting Cambodia and Vietnam as they have wonderful golf courses and a culture that I can immerse myself in. I am always looking forward to the next adventure.

As a young child I loved playing 'house' and loved to help paint and decorate our family home. As I grew older this same love applied to my own homes and this love and passion for anything to do with houses saw me turn my bank on the finance world and led me to study design.

I have been a showroom consultant with Elite for over 6 years and working in the bathware and tile industry for over 12 years.

I am here to listen to your needs and offer you personally selected solutions and products that we source from around the world. I will look after you from beginning to end of your job - no job is too small or too large.

When I'm not at work you will find me at the beach (or basically anywhere near the water), redecorating my home or tracking down a good coffee shop.

I've always believed in the saying "Write your life plan in pencil not pen" - My working life has snaked through university, sales, banking and finance, business owner and now into tiles, tapware and toilets! 

My position takes me to some fantastic places and enables me to meet some pretty amazing individuals and teams. I am in awe of how these talented people turn an idea and vision into reality. They take a picture in their head, put it on paper and watch it grow through development and construction, finally for us to live in it and enjoy it. They are then brave enough to put their name to these designs and put it out there for the world to judge.

With a history of project management from building design to fit out and occupancy, followed by a creative stint in signage & packaging, I've spent over 20 years in administration. Joining the team at Elite in 2017, I have added a new chapter to my story. Wonderful products, people and the opportunity to glean from a knowledge base that has taken years to acquire. I love working with Adobe illustrator and Elite provides me with the ability to do that by creating customer selections that providing a visual aid in the decision-making process.

In my free time, you'll find me out and about camping, kayaking, cycling, bush walking, or just soaking up somewhere new. A love of exploring South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales has me out and about nearly every weekend. My fur baby Rosie accompanies me on our outdoor adventures with family and friends.

Coming from an automotive background I decided to have a career change and began working at Elite in 2017. This introduced me to tiles, Bathware and sanitary ware - very different industry and a big learning curve.

Handling all the logistics for the imported products and managing the warehouse keeps me busy and I enjoy the challenge of despatching the orders Australia wide in a great condition and on time.

When not at work I enjoy restoring VW's and spending time with my wife and friends.

While studying at Uni, Michele & Mark offered me a part time job in Data Entry. From there I have been thrown around to wherever is needed.

My tenure at Elite has taken me from Data Entry, to the Warehouse and then to a very loose Marketing role. Despite not having any official titles I have enjoyed the journey which has had me learning multiple aspects of the company.

I have been working part-time with Elite for a few years now and help out wherever help is needed. I bounce around between the warehouse and the office, getting the best of both worlds with hands on work as well as creative/design work.

My passion is in music and events, so when I'm not working I'll be playing music or working for festivals/events around Brisbane.
