Meet The Team – Rowan Gaunt

Date you started with RPR:  1st of March 2021

Your Role with RPR:

Regional Manager BARQ, to help the existing team and grow through additional BD activities.  Previous experience across the Industrial, Electrical and Construction industries QLD wide should enable me hopefully to pick up some new clients for RPR and enable me to service/grow some existing clients already onboard.  RPR already has a strong performing team and I plan to assist and add value them where possible.  I am extremely impressed with the systems and procedures in place and see the massive potential the RPR business can achieve over the coming weeks and months.

Why you like working with RPR or any fun / strange things that have happened:

It was immediately obvious that RPR has a very detailed and thorough approach to recruitment, with the most comprehensive induction process I have ever encountered in nearly 10 years in the industry.  This really gives the whole team a brilliant foundation to start from and to hit productivity in optimum time.  Each team member takes a very ethical and methodical approach to recruitment which enables RPR to provide a high-level consultative service to our valued clients. I immediately felt part of the RPR family and I am looking forward to contributing to the business’s success moving forward.  Also love the banter flying around the office 😊

What you do outside of Work:

Outside of work, when I am not being occupied by two very active young boys at parks, swimming pools and adventure assault courses, I love to play and watch football (soccer for the Aussies).  I have been a member of Toowong Football club for over 10 years now, as a player and coach, which usually take up 2/3 nights per week.  Outside of football, I love to drive most things, whether cars, motorbikes, boats, or aeroplanes (much to my wife’s dismay- she fears planes and motorbikes). Also, as a family, we love travelling both inside and outside of Australia, unfortunately due to COVID, this has been severely restricted.  Fiji is the best holiday I have ever been on, and dream destination would be either Bora Bora or the Maldives.

Fun Fact about you:

Before having kids, I used to be very into adrenaline sports and activities, anything extremely fast and thrill seeking.  My first ever skydive back in the UK, having waited most of the day due to poor weather, when I finally got up in the air to complete the jump, my instructor noticed an issue with the parachute, whilst I was sat on at the window with my legs dangling out, so we had to abort and fly back down, to change parachutes and go again- could have been bad I guess!!

I had arranged for a wing walk back in the UK but the company I was dealing with had a change in

insurance policy, so it didn’t happen, still on my bucket list in the future!!
