Scott studied Engineering and Science (major in Aquaculture) at Melbourne University before moving overseas to work in Scotland. At this time, Scott had a career change and became a Queensland Police Officer. He spent time in Cairns General Duties before becoming a Prosecutor in the Cairns Prosecution Corp. In 2010 Scott moved into the Cairns CIB where he spent the next 8 years as a Detective.
Belinda and Scott started the business in 2011 when they were both working full time in other employment. Scott and Belinda continued to work in both jobs until 2017 when they left their respective jobs and moved into the business full time together.
Scott brings 12 years’ experience running the own business and prior to working for a large commercial landscaper in Brisbane. Scott started the business with a second-hand push mower and a whipper snipper that he pinched from his father-in-law. Scott & Belinda have built the business to be a major player in the mowing and landscaping industry. We’ve completed several large projects throughout that time and can take on any major work in the industry.
In 2017, Scott’s Mowing had 3 employees with an annual turnover of approximately $300,000 per annum and Scott and Belinda had just welcomed their third child. At this time, both decided it was time Scott left the Police and joined the business on a full-time basis instead of doing both jobs and today’s present day Pinnacle Landscape Solutions (PLSNQ) (previously known as Scott’s Mowing) has grown to employing over 20 full-time staff. The reason for the name change, was to give our commercial client base peace of mind knowing they’ve hired a team with the right skillset and capabilities to carry our large-scale tender projects and we’re no longer just 3 blokes with lawn mowers in a truck.
Scott’s passion is in creating employment. We have a strong company policy on employing staff on a full-time basis, rather than casual or sub-contractor. Scott enjoys seeing his team have long term job security and financial options in relation to obtaining a home and financial stability. Scott is also very passionate about the work we complete. We enjoy working with clients and staff to produce an outcome that exceeds expectations.
During 15 years in the QPS as a General Duties Officer, Prosecutor and Detective, Scott was presented with many challenges and from this experience allows Scott to handle the challenges that arise running a business with many moving parts.
Scott and his wife Belinda, are both heavily involved in the local AFL club, coaching the junior team and attending club functions. Outside of work, they love fishing, 4-wheel driving and Collingwood.
Scott loves the lifestyle that is available in Cairns, we love the heat, the beaches, Port Douglas and the Tablelands. The people, the laid-back nature of Cairns people was a major factor in deciding to base our family here long term and establish the business in the area.
