Graham and Marilyn Hellier started this business, Rapid Solutions, over 20 years ago. They have worked consistently to get Rapid where it is today, not only as an insurance provider but also a provider of support and assistance to your business.
Both Graham and Marilyn are now working behind the scenes on various projects.
Marilyn has handed over her role of Claims Manager to David Collins. David has been with Rapid since 2006 as our Claims Solicitor.
Keith Farrow has been promoted to Chief Technical and Training Officer, looking after both our training and technical departments and Mark Barnes is now Rapid's Chief Operations Officer.
Whilst Graham and Marilyn have been here for 20 years, we have other long serving employees. Kim Sottovia, Jorge Matos, Debbie Chapman, Liz Smith, Pauline Kerr, Sharon Partridge, Gary Byrne, Nathan Kerr and Tiffany Armstrong have recently celebrated their 10 year anniversary.
We welcomed several new employees this year. Stuart Webb joined our Claims Team. Stuart has many years of experience in managing claims with several national and international insurance companies.
Johanna Smith joined us several months ago as an Executive Assistant to our management team.
We also welcomed back Steve King, one of our Rapid Trainers. Steve is based on the Central Coast of NSW and looks after students and training in NSW, VIC and Tasmania.
We have had a busy year with the introduction of our new logo and website, plus our new products - Report Writer and TimberSecure.
We held roadshows around the country for an opportunity to meet up with you and to showcase our new products.
We look forward to the next twenty years and hope you will continue this journey with us.
