Sassall Group Core Team
After leaving the family glass business (Sassall Glass) in 1995, Mick worked as a carpenter, then Foreman on multimillion dollar residential homes from Sydney Harbour to Palm Beach for 7 years.
It was during his time working on these projects that his enthusiasm for quality Carpentry, superior finishes and getting things done 'the right way' was ignited.
While learning from many industry experts, Mick has built a number of internationally acclaimed Architect Alex Popovs' designs. This experience, along with time spent working with many other quality tradesmen has afforded Mick skills that have proven to be invaluable in all that he does. In 2002 Mick moved back to Wollongong to start a family and his own business now named Sassall Group Pty Ltd.
Rob first came to Sassall Group as a fresh faced work experience student.
After acing Tafe and continually proving to us that we made the right decision Rob is now a fully qualified Tradesman & our Leading Hand who continues to work hard for us every day.
Our newest team member, Jordyn, was studying a pre apprenticeship at Wollongong TAFE when we approached the TAFE to assist with our search for a new apprentice. With the firm backing of his teacher and his fast response to our invitation we were impressed by Jordyn’s enthusiasm and willingness to learn. After 2 weeks of on the job training we took Jordyn on as a full time member of staff.
Jordyn will continue his apprenticeship indentured to Sassall Group whilst gaining valuable site experience under Mick Sassall and our leading hand Rob Beljan.
Nadine, Mick's wife, has long been attending to Mick's administrative requirements.
In 2014, Nadine became a full time member of the team and will be your point of contact for anything to do with invoicing, quotes required & Mick's schedule.
