The Deacam Team

Leonie Bradford

I’m the Financial Administrator at Deacam, working to ensure that Deacam continues to perform as a profitable business capable of employing a great team. With 21 years’ experience as a bookkeeper, I enjoy being able to work with jobs as they materialise, right through to completion, and examining all costs associated with the project. Working with Deacam has allowed me as a mother to work the hours that suit my family which means my work/life balance is rewarding. We are also very lucky at Deacam to have a great, hard-working, accomplished team who I relish working alongside every day.

Ian Slater

I work in the electrical engineering department at Deacam, having worked my way up from an electrician over the last 30 years. Most of my career has been spent working with cranes, often travelling interstate to work on a variety of projects in many different industries. I work on a wide range of projects at Deacam and have been a part of designing the new Fermecraft system. I enjoy the design aspect of working on an engineering project and find the challenging nature of the work at Deacam to be the best part of my job.

I am an apprentice at Deacam studying electrotechnology at Swinburne, and also the part time truck driver. I enjoy working with a range of new and innovative technology, and learning about electrical control and automation. There is such a variety of work at Deacam, which a lot of people, especially apprentices, don’t get exposure to, which I really enjoy. I’ve worked with a great group of people over the three years that I’ve been at Deacam.

The best part of my job is the great bunch of people I get to work with every day.

Brendan Girt

Known as “The Facilitator” within the team, I take care of operations management, scheduling of all jobs, and procurement of parts, all of which are essential in order for the rest of the team to complete their work. With 24 years’ experience as an A Grade Electrician, I’ve worked predominately on commercial and industrial projects, including facility management, before moving to Deacam four years ago. Deacam has given me the opportunity to work in a new area of the electrical trade and have provided incredible exposure to new technologies and customised design products. I find Deacam to be a very stimulating and unique work environment with unrivalled comradery.

I believe we can provide the highest level of service, and quality systems, whilst having fun.
