Meet the Backyard Grannys team – Jacob Kepreotes
Jacob has been with our team for three years and is currently a member of our building coordination team.
He holds a Bachelor of Construction Management from the University of Newcastle and says that throughout his tertiary studies, his passion for building grew. While completing his degree, Jacob gained valuable experience from work placement at construction companies like McDonald Jones Homes and Insight Building Services.
However, it was joining the Backyard Grannys team that really solidified his niche. He always knew he loved all things construction, but it was the quick build times and sheer quantity of projects that really appealed to Jacob. His energy matches perfectly with the pace of the business.
“The other reason I love working with this company so much is the friendly and reliable team. They make coming to work everyday enjoyable. Plus, Backyard Grannys looks after its employees and clients in every way,” he explains.
Outside of work, Jacob has a passion for sport and travel. “I play soccer on the weekends and will watch any kind of sport,” Jacob said. “I have a lot of respect for athletes and what they’ve gone through to be where they are today.”
He has also found the ultimate way to reward hard work. “I travelled to Europe three years ago and loved the Amalfi Coast, Rome and Paris.” Perhaps it was here he confirmed that his favourite food was pasta. In terms of domestic travel, Jacob loves Forster and visits there with his family each year.
Some describe him as an ‘enigma’, but there is zero mystery behind Jacob’s success with Backyard Grannys – he’s easy to work with yet determined to get the job done.
