“I am the former co-owner and Sales Director of MPH Rural Pty. Ltd. a family owned, manufacturing and construction SME operating in the highly competitive, seasonal markets of grain and water storage.
For more than a decade I developed and grew the MPH Rural business and gained an extensive knowledge of the Australian agricultural industry and the demands of regional business and property owners.
My brother, Jim O’Connor and I purchased Gessner Industries in July 2013. Gessner Industries specialize in the design and manufacture of the highest quality equipment and attachments for the Agricultural, Construction and Mining Industries throughout Australia, Africa and Asia. In 2015, Gessner Industries will have operated continuously for 40 years.”
