Celebrating 40 years in the game



Powerplant are so incredibly proud to help celebrate our CEO’s 40th year in the industry today. John (JK) started in the SEC 40 years ago at the Lilydale depot as a junior worker after his Dad called him in as they were short and he thought he would give it a shot. 40 years on and he has given so much to those who have worked with him through both leadership, knowledge and most of all friendship.


Before joining Powerplant, JK had many successes but most recently he was the man behind establishing and building Select Solutions. JK was the driving force behind such achievements as:

  • Delivering exceptional levels of customer satisfaction with a Net Promoter Score of over 50;
  • Building a high performing culture with Select Solutions being accredited as a Best Employer by AON Hewitt and having an employee engagement score of 80%, also;
  • Leading Select Solutions to being recognised as one of Australia’s 40 Most Innovative Companies by the AFR.

I am sure all that have worked with JK over the years will agree the industry has been lucky to have this great bloke apart of it. Congratulations JK!

Now, take a look at the pic below and see if you can guess which one he is…
