CQ siblings aim to build reliable and consistent service
WITH more than 20 years in the mining industry under his belt, Max Rowe is making the biggest career change of his life.
And he couldn't be more excited about it.
The Gladstone man has taken over the Capricorn Coast business Fastway Couriers, and has moved back to Central Queensland after living away in Western Australia.
But he's not alone in his new business venture, teaming up with his sister Anne Mounter.
Anne is a known entrepreneur in Gladstone, already owning a cleaning business and operating two florist shops.
She also started her own courier business, GDT Logistics, ensuring she had a reliable company to suit her delivery needs for her flower shops, Max said.
The pair said they were excited to work together on a business that they were passionate about.
"It's fantastic, Anne and I have always been very close, and we're both pretty excited about this," Max said.
"We've talked about (going into business together) for quite awhile."
Max said he will be putting his focus on his customers and ensuring the pair had a reliable, customer focused business.
"That's a key thing for us, to build that reliable and consistent service," he said.
"I'll be working on the business and spending time with my drivers."
His sister, Anne, will take care of the administrative side of the business as well as speaking with clients.
The business isn't just based in the coast either, with services around CQ down to Miriam Vale, and access to the Fastway network spanning 25 regional franchises nationally.
