MEET THE WOLFPACK
Matthew started his career in 2002; always knowing he wanted to be a builder, he threw himself into a carpentry apprenticeship. After completing his apprenticeship with a commercial construction company, he quickly progressed to Leading Hand Carpenter and Site Foreman.
In 2009, Matt and Tom Clarke decided to take on the construction industry themselves. White Wolf Constructions was born on 1 July 2009, and has experiences continued success and growth, across insurance repairs, residential, and commercial construction. Matt has used his skill, knowledge, training and passion for construction to build a successful business. Matt’s eye for detail and need for accuracy and organisational skills has paid off, making his business very sought after, not only as a residential and commercial builder, but also as an insurance repair builder to some of the biggest insurance companies in Australia.
With decades in the insurance and residential building industry and hands on experience as a Leading Hand Carpenter, Tom’s knowledge of the two industries has been instrumental in bringing White Wolf Constructions quickly to the forefront of the construction industry. Tom started his career as an apprentice Carpenter, moving quickly to a Leading Hand for a major insurance repair builder, with his primary focus being on insurance repairs.
Since founding White Wolf Constructions, Tom has remained heavily involved in the day to day workings of the company, managing construction jobs and attending to insurance claims, whilst building and managing a successful business. Tom’s strengths lie in his Project Management skills, his Strategic Planning skills, and his ability to adapt to change. In an industry that is changing every day, Tom has ensured that White Wolf remains at the cutting edge of construction, and maintains a hands-on approach in every aspect of the business.
