Joe has been in the construction industry for more than 20 years, working as a carpenter with his father, until gaining his builder’s licence and establishing his own construction company, Joe Pennisi Homes, over ten years ago.
Joe is a passionate builder and whilst no longer ‘on the tools’ himself, he is onsite daily, overseeing the build and managing the sub-contractors that J P Homes employees. Joe is also very driven and spends many hours working on the development and growth of the company, by maintaining regular contact with clients, business associates, industry trades people and professionals
Not only is Joe is a business man, he is also family man and passionate sportsman. He holds a Bachelor degree in Community Welfare, which encouraged his involvement as a volunteer in a mentoring program at the Townsville Juvenile Correctional Centre. Joe also volunteers much of his spare time to training amateur and professional boxers, including World and Australian ranked title holders. Outside of these activities, Joe spends time enjoying family activities with his wife Natacha, son Damon, and their much loved Staffy, Rastis.
Joe Pennisi Homes is the second business Joe has successfully owner/operated, the first being Finjon Recycling. The company was the Townsville agent for Visy Recycling, as well as being Townsville’s largest independent recycling company. Being a proud owner/operator of a successful local business, Joe ensures he puts back into the community through his generous support of many local community organisations.
2IC / Operations Manager
Natacha brings with her, many years of vital operations experience, having owned and operated several successful businesses, before either selling or retiring them and eventually moving over to join Joe in running Joe Pennisi Homes. Natacha’s experience and knowledge is an asset to the business. Her ability to manage and co-ordinate a large number of staff, sub-contractors and suppliers, ensures that Joe Pennisi Homes runs like clockwork.
Natacha holds a Bachelor degree in Commerce, as well as being a qualified Steel Fabricator (Welder). Having both a profession and trade, enables her to work comfortably in all facets of a construction company.
Outside of the office, Natacha maintains an active lifestyle. She offers support to Joe within the boxing world and runs around after her two boys Damon and (fur) baby Rastis.
Both Joe and Natacha take great satisfaction and personal pride in achieving the high goals they set for themselves. Their attention to detail and strong work ethic have always held them in good stead and ensured extremely successful careers, particularly in the construction industry.
