Kim Lundgaard, General Manager

Kim Lundgaard had a successful career as a leading Toowoomba human resource professional with particular expertise in industrial relations, employee relations and organisational change management from small business through to large employers. Kim’s experience included directly managing small and large teams. After the 2011 floods, Kims work focus changed to assisting small and medium business owners in SE Qld with managing staff in difficult times due to unprecedented weather events, businesses being in stress and economic uncertainly. It became inevitable that Kim would join the family business and she joined the team at Darling Downs Brick Sales as General Manager in July 2011.

In addition to business management, more recently Kim has started assisting customers with brick and home colour choices, which she finds very rewarding. She guides customers through a step-by-step process from choosing a colour, shape or look of a brick from a wide range, showing samples, viewing the bricks in a home, using a visualiser for colour coordination of the façade, to being happy with their final decision about the right brick for their new home. If you need help with your brick choice, don’t hesitate to ask for Kim.

Phil Seni, Sales

Phil is the guy with the big smile who you are likely to meet when you enter the Darling Downs Brick Sales retail store at Rocla Court. You may also meet Phil when he is working the occasional Saturday morning.

When Phil joined the Darling Downs Brick Sales team 5 years ago, he brought with him a wealth of product knowledge and previous building industry manufacturer and retail experience with him.

If you have any questions about building products then you can ask Phil. He knows a lot about grey block, concrete block and retaining wall blocks. In fact, he knows almost everything there is to know about bricks, blocks and pavers across the range of manufacturers. Phil's product knowledge and high level of customer service clearly makes an impact on customers, as he gets lots of positive comments.

Phil does a great job with the set up of the Darling Downs Brick Sales display at the Toowoomba Home Show each year. He is a real asset to have working on the display, due to his knowledge and ability to answer customers questions.

Phil brings an easy going vibe to the team. He can be found playing football on weeknights when he’s not playing his guitar.

Erin is the first person you are likely to meet when you arrive at Darling Downs Brick Sales at Rocla Court. She has a strong background in retail sales, and is most happy when she is assisting customers to choose the right product for them.  Erin’s role is to provide excellent service to customers by learning about and paying attention to customers needs, providing key facts, assisting customers to find products they are happy with, which meet their needs and are within budget.

Erin is interested in the creative aspects of building. She really enjoys seeing customers come in with building ideas, builders plans and backyard renovation projects, and then seeing them come to life.  Erin is always searching for images for the Darling Downs Brick Sales Facebook page. Don’t forget to send your building project images to Erin once you have finished your build.

We receive many positive comments from customers about Erin’s assistance and help. She likes to ensure our customers know about the Darling Downs Brick Sales monthly specials to make sure they get value for money.

On weekends you will find Erin motorbike riding with her fiance and young son.

Rob Rickert, Forklift driver/Yardsperson

Being a family owned business we care about providing excellent customer service. Rob is our ‘point of difference’ as he provides customers with a personal loading service.

Bricks, blocks and pavers are heavy! Rob can stack out loads using the forklift so they are ready for delivery.  If customers are buying small quantities of bricks, blocks or pavers for your backyard project and want to take them with you, Rob can help load your products into your vehicle or trailer.
