South East Victoria Franchisor
Paul is a Victorian based carpenter and builder who is also a qualified pest controller with business interests in the termite treatment, termite and pest inspection and pest control industry.
In late 2010, when the Jim’s Group entered the Pest Control market, Paul decided to buy a Jim’s Pest Control franchise, almost as an experiment. Conducting termite and timber pest inspections, along with general pest control services, Paul made back the purchase price of the pest control franchise within three months.
As a builder who was also delivering building & termite or timber pest inspections for the residential pre-purchase market, Paul decided to approach Jim with the concept of Jim’s Building Inspections. With Jim’s support the Building Inspection division was created. The existing Building Inspections industry in Australia is highly fragmented. It is dominated by single person operators and just a very small handful of larger state based or national companies.
As a consequence Paul’s plan is to build the dominant, national force in the building inspections industry. Through Paul’s network of reliable Jim’s Building Inspectors house inspections and general property inspections continue to be offered throughout Australia. Paul is married to Suzanne, who is an active partner in the business, bringing extensive executive experience within the government sector.
Paul has three children James, Amelia and Matilda, and would still be playing footy if his knee had held out.
