Stephen Watterson: A Finalist in the 2024 Moreton Bay Business and Innovation Awards

Jul 10, 2024 | Blog, News

We are proud to announce that our CEO, Stephen Watterson, has been named a finalist in the 2024 Moreton Bay Business and Innovation Awards, competing in the Entrepreneur of the Year category. Organised by Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism (MBRIT) with the support of the City of Moreton Bay, the awards celebrate the outstanding achievements and innovations of businesses throughout the region where our head office is located.

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner on October 18 at the Eatons Hill Hotel.

In 1998, Stephen joined his father, Roy Watterson, in the early days of Lincom Group just as the company was expanding into the crushing and screening market in Queensland, Northern Territory, and Papua New Guinea. Starting his career at just 19 as a sales representative, Stephen’s dedication and strategic vision quickly set him apart, earning him numerous promotions and recognition.

Since assuming leadership in 2017, Stephen has overseen substantial growth, including the establishment of four new branches and the addition of a new manufacturer to our portfolio. The expansion of the head office in Narangba, which now includes a Training Centre and a new Rapid Response service, demonstrates our continued progress. Additionally, the introduction of a new refreshed logo in January 2024 represents a strategic effort to modernise our image while remaining true to our core identity.

Stephen’s journey is fuelled by passion and a relentless drive to exceed expectations. As Lincom Group continues to carve its path in the industry, one thing remains certain: the best is yet to come.
