For the past twenty years I have been working in our business, building and managing Kingsberry Body Corporate Management. Previously I was a secondary teacher and taught in high schools across the state. I am a born and bred Townsvillean and proud of it.
I loved teaching and hence, when committing to the business meant changing careers for the long term it was important to me not only to succeed but also to continue to enjoy interacting with others and to set the bar high in relation to professional and service standards. In the early years it was important to maintain a balance between family and work as we raised four wonderful children, two boys and two girls who are now well educated and successful adults but more importantly good and interesting people whose company I always enjoy.
Our family has now expanded to include our much loved daughter in law, son in law and two gorgeous grandsons. Throughout my life I have always enjoyed people. Those who know me will agree that I love a chat. What better forum than a body corporate meeting! I strongly believe that one must have a thirst for knowledge and new skills in order to learn and to grow. When I was a very young my father, who passed when I was 18, wrote in my autograph book (a must have at that time): "Always turn your face towards the sun and the shadows fall behind you". This and my Mother's well known expression: "I'd rather wear out than rust out" and the inherent character reflected in these expressions have been very strong contributory factors to my work ethic, direct no nonsense approach and determination to get things done.
As managing director, Ben has an unparalleled commitment to delivering an unrivaled experience for clients with the same level of honesty and integrity synonymous with the Kingsberry name.
"I am constantly striving to ... simply do things better".
With his fresh approach to business, Ben likes to challenge tradition and is committed to raising the bar within the local market.
Ben loves Townsville and believes this city provides the best lifestyle in the world!
