Please welcome yet another new Leather Doctor to our team – Tony. He will be operating the The Leather Doctor Werribee territory in Victoria.
We spoke to him about his reasons for joining The Leather Doctor and what he hopes to achieve with the business.
Here’s what he had to say…
What was it that attracted you to run The Leather Doctor Werribee business?
I liked the idea of returning to a profession where both design/fabrication and managerial skills were required along with direct contact with customers. I enjoy addressing issues that require individual and specific solutions being developed and put in place.
What did you do prior to becoming a Leather Doctor?
Prior to joining the Leather Doctor team, I was employed as a Clinical Consultant Orthotist at hospitals and sports medicine clinics both in Australia and New Zealand. My role was the design, fabrication and manufacture of specific orthopaedic appliances and/or supports for orthopaedic issues. I was then employed for many years in various managerial roles within the health and justice systems in Australia and New Zealand.
How long have you been with The Leather Doctor for?
I have been involved with the Leather Doctor for approximately 6 years now. Initially I was a contractor, then moved to being a part owner of a region. Now I’m a Leather Doctor franchisee.
What territory will you operate?
What do you hope to achieve during your time as a Leather Doctor?
Simply to see customers with a smile on their face when a sometimes complicated issues have been successfully resolved.
Tell us something interesting about yourself?
Happy to be happy, not so happy to be sad or over serious.
Describe your ideal weekend?
Honestly my idea of a perfect weekend would be having the time to do what I need to do, if it was time to do it, otherwise time with family and friends making the best of the time available.
