Grant started with us in 1997 and was one of the pioneers of JOST Australia in its early days. Qualified as a Plant Mechanic, Grant, started his career with JOST as an internal sales co-ordinator in our New South Wales branch, getting in and lending a hand to the warehouse when needed. It was not long afterwards that he moved into an external sales role as a Sales Representative, building client relationships and increasing sales. Grant continued to exceed in his career at JOST and headed up the Sales Team in New South Wales as Area Manager in 2011 – leading a successful team with continued sales growth. In 2014 Grant was invited to open and manage a new branch in South Australia – a challenge that he accepted with gusto. Since then, Grant has built a successful and profitable branch in South Australia, expanding customer relationships and building his team from three to four and now on the lookout for a fifth team player.
In asking Grant what were some of his highlights, without hesitation, he answered “building life-long friendships with colleagues and customers”. He is grateful for some of the achievements and opportunities, from being entrusted to start a new branch and see it succeed to being able to represent JOST overseas on trips to Germany and China.
Grant, you are a quiet achiever. I’m glad that we have you on our team. You always set a great example - thank you for your lasting loyalty and commitment.
