Our Team in Australia

Roger Jenner
Roger, who is based in Brisbane, works with the Grillo dealers throughout NSW and Queensland. His background is mechanical and Roger helps our dealers with product demonstrations, field days and technical support in the field. Roger has previously worked for earlier Grillo distributors in Australia since 2000 and is highly experienced and passionate about the latest Grillo products he now represents.

Allan Wilkinson
Many of our dealers and others throughout the Outdoor Power Equipment industry know Allan.  With 40 years of sales experience behind him in the industry Allan's knowledge is second to none.  Agrigarden's Victorian, Tasmania and South and West Australian dealers are supported by Allan who also looks after the commercial side of the business.

Mario Taverniti
Mario also based in Queensland handles end user sales enquiries. Mario also previously was involved with earlier Grillo distributors in Australia in a management capacity. His involvement with the outdoor power industry goes back many years when Mario owned and operated a business involved with the importation of rotary tillers and other Italian agricultural products.  Mario's role in Agrigarden is handling in-bound sales inquiries and working with the dealers to ensure that customers requirements and expectations are fully met.

Philip Welch

Philip also joined the company in 2006 and handles parts, warranty and technical areas. With a farming and hard landscaping background Philip has a good knowledge of machinery and business systems.  Philip has contributed to the streamlining of Agrigardens' after-sales, technical and warranty support for its dealers and also assists with sales enquiries. A key role he manages is to ensure the third party warehouses in Brisbane operates efficiently with fast spare parts service.

Andrew Loughnan

Andrew also with a farming background joined Agrigarden in 2006 as Administration and Finance Manager. As well as running the accounting and admin side of the business, Andrew is involved in key operational projects across the business in Australia.  

Mike Candy 
After 25 years running his own business within the telecommunications sector Mike decided to look for new business opportunities.  Upon finding an absence of machines that would be suitable for the unique requirements that his own block demanded, Mike acquired the Grillo distribution agency in 2001. After extensively trialing Grillo machines, imported from Italy, Mike saw the potential for a specialized range of these unique products to be able to be used by customers with similar lifestyle block properties and Agrigarden was born.

Mike has a close relationship with Grillo as they work together to grow the Grillo business in Australia.  Mike handles sales inquiries and works with the dealers to ensure that end user customers expectations are met.
