Starting Your Own Business: When To Take The Leap - Matt Lucarelli (MBA ‘16)

February 13, 2018

"Born and raised in Perth, straight after high school I went on to study Construction Management in Perth and abroad in the US. I have since spent 8 years working for Perkins, a mid tier commercial builder in Perth. Having worked my way up the organization from graduate to a senior management position, using the experience I gained and the skills learnt in my MBA at UWA put me in a position to start my own business.

Last year the timing was right and I took the opportunity to form Capstone Construction, a new commercial builder in the Perth market that focus’ on building long term relationships with staff and clients. I believe in people and that investing time and effort into your team is not only the right thing to do for them, but is the only way to deliver long term results.

Outside of work I have a young family with our second child on the way this year, love a game of golf when I get the time and am part of the Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation Emerging Leaders in Philanthropy program."
