Packserv Leadership Team
Nathan started out in hospitality as a chef before earning his qualifications in accounting and management spending several years in corporate accounting. Despite Packserv ticking over into its 14th year, Nathan is still studying and learning under the K2 business management program and supports other businesses and business owners in a mentoring program through a senior leadership qualification. Nathan started Packserv over 14 years ago as a sole proprietor and built the business from the ground up, undertaking every aspect of the business himself, as he had successfully done previously when he built Rentafill Pty Ltd which is where he spent 11 years as the GM.
Nathan and his family have been well known in the packaging industry for over 40 years’ and have been involved in or built entirely more than half a dozen of the industry’s most commonly used machinery manufacturing businesses. Over the years as the business has grown and developed, so too has the level of talent it has recruited, now sporting more than 15 serious professionals who specialise in different business streams. Nathan is adamant that despite the age of the business, it is only the beginning with a vast pipeline of plans for the coming years.
