Apollo Patios, a leader in patio and home improvements, announced this week the appointment of Dan Mulhern as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Mr Mulhern, previously the General Manager of Apollo’s Queensland division takes over from Executive Chairman Tim Woodhouse, who served as interim CEO since March.
“Dan’s exceptional leadership and strategic thinking have been pivotal in Apollo’s recent market repositioning,” said Mr Woodhouse. “His vision aligns perfectly with Apollo’s goals for the coming years, and we are confident in his ability to lead us towards continued success.”
Dan Mulhern brings over 20 years of experience in the building products industry, with a proven track record in sales and operational excellence. Since joining Apollo, he has played a crucial role in the company’s transformation and growth always working in close collaboration with the team.
Reflecting on his appointment, Mr. Mulhern expressed enthusiasm for the future.
“I am honoured to lead Apollo Patios, especially at a time when we are poised for innovative growth while maintaining our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction,” he said.
“Our focus will remain on enhancing customer experience and nurturing the Apollo culture that values every team member’s contribution.
“We’re really big on collective genius – everyone has a voice, ideas are shared and we all put our heads together to work through initiatives and create solutions for any challenges that pop up. Apollo’s achievements this year have been a testament to the wonderful team and how we’ve worked together.”
Under new ownership since March 2022, Apollo has experienced significant transformation, including a complete rebrand. These changes, guided by a commitment to retain the company’s family-oriented essence, have positioned Apollo for a dynamic future.
“I like to say that Apollo is a brand new business with 30 years’ experience. We’ve reshaped what already existed into something that’s pretty special.
“It was a really good business, and now it’s an awesome one.”
Looking ahead, Mr. Mulhern emphasised a continued focus on customer satisfaction and internal growth.
“Yes, we have growth aspirations, but we’re also committed to continuing to invest in what we’ve got and to continue to make the experience for our existing customers, partners and team even better. We’re excited to build on our strong foundation and enter a new era of excellence in service and innovation.”
Our values represent everything we love about the Apollo Patios brand that has been around for the last 30 years – and for those of you who have been part of the Apollo family for a while, this is a direct reflection of your hard work and dedication.
Yet, there is always room for growth and improvement. It is equally important to us that our values also account for how we could build on what we have to evolve the company into what we believe it can become – the most desirable home improvement brand.
We are doing everything we can to ensure the essence of these values flows through our entire organisation from the top down.
We are proud of the values that we have settled on for the future of Apollo Patios and we look forward to bringing them to life in the next chapter for our business.
