The Year That Was – CEO Update – Adrian Esplin
Growth and development are words that are often used loosely in our industry to describe business improvement. At Sarah we can stand by these statements following the sustainable growth of our business over the last 3 years due to the aligned personal development of our staff. People who know me well understand my drive to continually simplify business and life, to understand the key ingredients that brought together and managed in the right way, create success.
For me, this is all about people; having the right people aligned with our values and sharing the same goals as our business. I take my role as CEO very seriously – most importantly the trust placed by staff in ensuring their safety, livelihood, job satisfaction and career development can be met here at Sarah. What drives me to continually develop and grow our business is to ensure we have the right projects, culture and values to deliver this outcome.
We should all be proud of the achievements delivered to our customers over the last 3 years at Sarah. We have doubled in size, whilst delivering more than three times the annual work revenue when compared to 2014. We have earned a reputation for great quality, industry recognised through being awarded MBA’s Commercial Builder for 2017, whilst producing many award winning projects including two national winning projects in 2016, and again in 2017 at the MBA national awards. However the greatest recognition is the repeat business of our customers and most importantly our staff choosing to stay and develop their careers with Sarah.
The future is bright as we continue to build great relationships with our existing and also new customers. Our future is strong as we continue to build long lasting relationships with each other at Sarah and the many associated industries including architects, cost managers, project managers and all design disciplines.
The challenges to our business will only continue, however with sound business strategy, continuing to develop great relationships across the industry and maintaining our strong values, I’m certain our success will continue for many years to come – after all, we are only 57 years young!
