Purchasing the business only a year ago, David Lumb, has been the catalyst for considerable growth within Queensland based industrial water treatment and recycling solutions provider, Clearmake .

As Managing Director of Clearmake, David Lumb has overseen the development of the business by introducing new products, improved business practices and a more suitably experienced, skilled team of people to support the business moving forward.

Amid warnings of economic uncertainty, these changes have resulted in a 35% increase in sales revenue for FY08, improved operations and client relations. Plus Clearmake have been announced as a finalist in this year’s Telstra Business Awards.

“We’re in a growth industry, so we needed the right people, in the right roles, with the right level of support to successfully manage the evolution of the business,” says David Lumb.

“We now have a sensational team, led by an inspiring group of managers. I’m excited about the business and feel very well supported by the entire team.”

“Our recognition as a finalist in the Telstra Business Awards is a result of everyone’s hard work over the past 12 months,” says David Lumb.

Winners for the Telstra Business Awards will be announced at state and territory events in all capital cities during August and September.
