From the Sunshine State to the Tropical Capital of North Queensland

At McMahon Services we have family business values, whilst integrating our reputation, integrity and relationships to deliver exceptional outcomes for our clients. We are firmly committed to looking after our staff, from safety in the workplace through to professional development, ongoing training, and equal opportunities.

A prime example of this is the appointment of our long-term employee Chelsea Karena as our new Area Manager for our Townsville branch. In 2021, the opportunity arose for Chelsea to leave her beloved Queensland team, pack up her fiancé, cat and dog, and take the 15-hour drive and relocate to Townsville.

Chelsea first joined our Queensland team as an Environmental Scientist in 2017, and soon became a Project Manager after managing a few smaller environmental remediation projects.

She is a qualified Environmental Scientist with eight years’ experience in contaminated land remediation, ecological assessments and contractual management prior to joining the Company.

Chelsea strives to excel in both her personal and professional life and has become an integral part of the McMahon Services team. She is passionate, positive and always willing to help others.

Since arriving in Townsville Chelsea has set up a new premises, built new client relationships, won her first Townsville project and is starting to recruit and build her team.

We asked Chelsea of her time here at McMahon Services;

What do you enjoy most about working at McMahon Services?

My colleagues!!! Plus working on diverse projects across Queensland.

What do you hope to achieve for the business in Townsville?

For McMahon Services to be the first call our North Queensland Clients make when a project arises. I want them to know the job will be done right, safely and to the highest possible standard.

Thanks for your drive and dedication to the business Chelsea, we can’t wait to see what new heights Chelsea takes the business to in the tropics.
