Meet Dallas Kells

Dallas Kells

Regional Operations Manager – Northern Region

Having worked for Conplant for over 34 years, Dallas Kells has the type of experience organisations dream of. Since 1980, Dallas has performed a number of roles including working in the wash bay cleaning equipment, repairing equipment in the workshop and later in the field, driving trucks and dispatching orders in the parts department, before becoming National Parts manager.

Dallas has also been a Hire Controller, Branch Manager and is now the Regional Operations manager for the Northern Region. In fact, there aren’t many departments Dallas hasn’t been involved in over the years!

“Conplant is just an excellent company to work for! There’s a lot of opportunities and it’s such a great place to be. Even being based in Queensland, we could pick up the phone and talk to anybody about anything. Everyone’s prepared to help. There’s just a very good family culture running through the whole business”.

During his time at Conplant, Dallas has seen that quality customer service really is behind everything we do.

“Every company believes that they give the best possible service – but at Conplant, it’s something that all the staff really strive for. We’re all working hard for the same results and this belief runs through the entire business”.

What does Dallas find most satisfying working at Conplant?

“For me, it’s having a great team. I’ve got 27 people here in Brisbane, another four on the Sunshine Coast and six at the Coffs Harbour branch. Watching the people grow and develop is an incredible thing and something I’m lucky to be a part of.”

“One member of my team, who started with us three years ago as a Hire Controller, was promoted to Assistant Branch Manager just a year ago, and now she’s a Customer Service Manager looking after our customers in the Northern Brisbane suburbs and surrounding areas”.

“We’ve also had a few staff that started in the wash bay, just like myself, that we’ve sent through trades. There’s been three that have become plant mechanics and another one that’s currently running through to become an auto electrician. It’s nice to make a difference in these people’s lives!”
