MEET THE TRUSTY GLASS TEAM

steve

Steven Hatzimihail
Original Proprietor

 

Steve started Trusty Car Body Repairs in 1979, and has since handed over ownership to Christopher. Originally as a Panel Repair business, Auto glazing services were automatically carried out by Panel Beaters as part of their trade.

 

Steve significantly grew and expanded the business into the largest Autoglass & Panel Repair company in Central Australia. Over time Steve modified the business structure into providing predominantly Autoglass services by late 1990’s.

CHRISTOPHER
Christopher Hatzimihail
Managing Director & Automotive Glass Technician Level III

 

Christopher began working with the family business in October 2000 as an Autoglass Technician Apprentice. Qualified as a Computer Technician, the change of industries was rewarding.

 

Now as Managing Director, Christopher has evolved the business through name changes, Trusty Car Body Repairs, to Trusty Windscreens, and now the Trusty Glass of today. Originally spanning the panel works & Autoglass industries, Christopher has grown and specialised the business to become Central Australia’s leading Autoglass, Building Glass and Tinting company.

Anne-Marie Jansen

Anne-Marie originally joined the Trusty Glass team in 2005. After 3 years of her services, Anne-Marie moved on to start a family and continue her passion of working in the Floristry industry.

 

Through Trusty Glass’s expansion, the business grew to a point where a full time administrator and customer service officer was required. The Company is lucky to have Anne-Marie back on board since early 2018, completing all invoicing, customer services, and background operations work. Anne-Marie is one of the friendly people you will speak to and meet when giving us a call, or coming into our office.

Lisa Hatzimihail
Accounts & Marketing

 

Lisa joined the Trusty Glass team in 2008, with a wealth of customer service and banking industry experience. As Lisa’s photography business took off and when Andre joined the team, her role as Office Manager at Trusty Glass was able to take a back seat.

 

Lisa’s accounting and marketing experience within her own business allowed her to transition to a similar back-end role at Trusty Glass, where she now handles all accounts, is our website designer and social media expert!
