We’ve just ticked over a significant milestone at Gippsland Solar, with our Operations Manager Grant Wyett the first employee to chalk up 5 years of service.
It’s hard to put Grant’s contribution to GipSol into words (but I’ll try anyway!). He started off as a sub-contracting electrician in 2013, when we only installed 1-2 systems per week.
Grant quickly developed a passion for the vision we had for GipSol, and the opportunities that existed within the industry. So when business started to take off, Grant had no hesitation in winding up his electrical business, and coming on board to steer our growth.
Not only has Grant gone above and beyond for us personally, but his entire family has carved an amazing legacy within the business. His wife Rebecca has worked with us as a labourer for a number of years, and has now moved into an admin role on the phones. And their son Kyle also came on board as an apprentice electrician, and has now moved to the city to oversee our expansion into the metro Melbourne market.
Grant and his family have been incredibly loyal and passionate members of the team, setting a standard that will continue to define us well into the future.
As a relatively young business, creating a legacy is very important to us. Our senior management team has remained intact since day 1, and our highly respected technical guru Shane Clayton is about to bring up his 5 year milestone shortly too.
Our founding team members hold a special place in the history of Gippsland Solar, and we appreciate everything they have done for us along the journey.
