Meet the Team – Greg & Donna Gilbert – Regional Franchisors for Townsville & North Queensland

Meet Greg & Donna, our Regional Franchisors for North Queensland, supporting franchisees across the Townsville and North Queensland region.

Greg began his career as an apprentice motor mechanic in the Childers district working at the Isis Mill. From there Greg spent five years working for the Department of Aboriginal Affairs based in Weipa, working throughout Cape York and the Torres Strait Islands.

Greg travelled to Mt Isa with his family working his way up to management level for Mt Isa Mines. Greg has ventured into owning and operating his own businesses over the past twenty years in hydraulics, engineering and fishing tackle.

Greg decided to become a Regional Franchisor with James Home Services in mid-2020 as he understood and acknowledged the demand from consumers and how they required the need and demand for home services. Greg has extensive business knowledge and enjoys helping people start their own business to reap the benefits of small business ownership.

Greg finds honesty, dedication and being reliable key attributes and qualities for his success in running his previous business entities and now James Home Services North Queensland.

Greg manages both a lawn and garden franchise and an interior cleaning franchise in the Townsville area. Greg has built a quality team of gardeners and cleaning staff who are dedicated to the company who are loyal, kind and empathetic to our clients’ needs and requests.
