“Growth in Regional Queensland continues to be a strategic priority for AE Smith,” said Mark Lovelady, AE Smith General Manager Regional Queensland. “Opening an office in Rockhampton helps us help our growing customer base, particularly those with a national footprint in both metropolitan and regional areas.”

The AE Smith Rockhampton team will be led by Charlie Murphy (pictured below) who has recently joined AE Smith to take on this key role. Prior to joining AE Smith, Charlie held a management role with another local HVAC contractor BPM Cowlrick for over 20 years.

“Charlie has a formidable knowledge of the Rockhampton, Gladstone and Hinterland region,” said Mark Lovelady. “His extensive experience, engineering knowledge and skill will add value to the whole business and most importantly, how this helps his customers.”

Charlie Murphy commented on his appointment, “It is exciting to join a mature national business that has the resources, relationships and reputation to provide great depth to clients.”

In a move to further strengthen capability in Regional Queensland, Mike Mulherin, previously General Manager of AE Smith Mackay, has been appointed as Regional Queensland Business Development Manager.

“We’ll be looking to embed existing builder and developer relationships and establish new ones in the Central Region,” said Mike Mulherin.

“With state-wide coverage and a strong and mobile team of Project Managers, we’re also focused on securing construction projects and service contracts further afield,” he added, referencing a number of AE Smith’s recent remote delivery projects coordinated out of Queensland such as Onslow Airport 5,000km west of Mackay!
