He’s back!

After an absence of more than 15 years, the highly regarded Matthew O’Loughlin has returned to Southern Plumbing to head up the commercial team looking after builders.

Matt will work closely with Patrick Read, commercial manager (plumbing) and together they’ll strengthen and grow the company’s involvement in the Canberra building industry.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to have Matt back with us,’ said Managing Director, Warwick Beutler. “His integrity and commitment to customers sits perfectly with Southern Plumbing’s values. His return is a testament to our deeper investment in our customers and employees so that we remain at the pinnacle of the building and plumbing industry in the Canberra region,” Warwick said.

“Southern Innovations is renowned for its commitment to customer service and rejoining the company at a time of significant growth is exciting,” said Matt. “In particular, we’re expanding our teams and have a number of major projects happening which we know will take our support of the industry to the next level. In fact, we’re only a couple of months away from making some big announcements which we know are going to exceed our customers’ expectations in terms of service and product delivery.”
