Neil Belton

Operations Manager

With a unique blend of corporate management, sales experience and carpentary skills, Neil Belton is ideally placed to oversee the operational aspects of Furtado Property.

Working closely with the ten on-site managers at the village complexes managed by Furtado Property, Neil has overall responsibility for ensuring that the properties are well maintained, resources are managed appropriately and budgets are adhered to.

As a senior member of the management team at Furtado Property, Neil is involved in improving the company’s services and processes and establishing positive working relationships with on-site managers, contractors, body corporates and other key personnel.

In addition, Neil’s responsibilities include ensuring that all the complexes, including the over 50’s villages and other large developments managed by Furtado Property, are compliant with all occupational health and safety issues, including fire regulations.

He manages the tender processes for large-scale maintenance programs for a number of sites and is the key contact person for body corporate managers.

As the holder of a Building Services Authority licence and a former long-term employee of CSR (Australia’s leading building products company), Neil’s knowledge of the building industry makes him an invaluable member of the Furtado Property team.

“I really enjoy the variety that I have in this position. I am not tied to a desk all the time,” Neil said.

“It is a very people orientated job, with a lot of interaction with many different people and it is important to create a positive rapport with everyone I work with, whether they are the managers, contractors, kitchen staff or the team in the office.”

“Now and again I get the chance to do a bit of hands on work on some of the properties which keeps my carpentry skills up to date.”

When he is not managing the logistical side of the company’s operations you can find Neil and his wife tinkering around is 15 hectare property at Kingaroy, enjoying the peace and quiet.
