Let’s get to know our awesome March Member of the Month, Andrea Collins, Qld Commercial Manager for Johnson Suisse!
Tell us about yourself and your role!
I have previously worked in merchant roles and I am now working with a supplier. I get to work across a range of projects from Hospitals to Apartment complexes, Child Care Centre’s and Residential Homes.
I enjoy being part of a progressive, ever changing industry.
How long have you been in the industry and what drew you to a career in construction?
I started in the industry fifteen years ago. Innovation within brands pushing the ‘norm’ has been a real highlight. Renovation shows were becoming increasingly popular. Bathrooms became bigger, and more bathrooms were being added to homes. Along with this came more affordable well designed products.
What has been your biggest career achievement so far?
I think getting through and actually thriving over these past few years has been an incredible achievement. That coinciding with becoming a full time working mum is a real accomplishment!
What are your professional goals for 2023?
To grow my network within the industry and grow the business in Queensland.
