95 Years of Tradition

Starting at Clarke in an entry level position as a customs house clerk, Jason Kline began couriering documents around the city, conducting inspections as a teenager, and taking all the relevant courses to become a licensed customs broker. “Most young guys start in that position, and work their way up to becoming a customs broker,” says Mr Kline, who today serves as Managing Director.

“Out of all of that,” Debra explains, “we came up with our branded range of lobster medallions and lobster sashimi, which will be available from late January, lobster cooked meat and the lobster oil.”

Live the Possibilities

According to Chief Operating Officer Madeline Gall, the leading figures in the Lifeview brand already had a considerable background in running the homes. She says the five homes presented themselves as suitable for acquisition, first because of their locations: Wheeler’s Hill, Chelsea, Emerald, Keysborough, and Cranbourne. “We saw something special in them as they were all around the 60-bed mark and we wanted to operate residences that retained the family feel about them, rather than those double the size, which can become too institutionalised.

Rising to the Sporting Challenge

Also administered by the Trust is the adjacent Sydney Football Stadium, currently known for reasons of naming rights as the Allianz Stadium. This 45,500-seater takes care of the needs of the city’s more rectangular sports: rugby league and union, and now soccer. Either venue can accommodate a wide variety of diverse entertainments such as concerts, although Allianz Stadium predominates in this area.

Meeting Clients’ Evolving Needs

Providing Dependable Soft Services

“We initially started with one service, which was cleaning,” says company Director George Stamas. “Over the last 15 years, we have evolved into what we term in our industry providing ‘soft services,’ which is waste disposal, gardening, toilet requisites, and some minor security requirements. So we provide everything that is non-engineering and non-mechanical.”

Looking After the Assets

The business developed with the trend of outsourcing facilities management, which led – in cases where appropriate – to the combination of lease negotiation or lease administration. In the late 1990s, the federal government began outsourcing integrated real estate facility management contracts (the basis of the market in Australia) to a large number of private corporations—initially very large ones, and more recently smaller companies too—because of perceived advantages in efficiency in having a single solution to both matters.

Making Sense of Management

Management is the art, or science, of getting things done through people. Sounds fairly straightforward – except for the fact that people are not robots waiting to do our bidding. People have their own minds, motivations, and goals. So how do managers keep operations – and the people behind them – running as planned?
