Meet Chris Vaughan

Meet Chris Vaughan, our wonderful Sales Manager based in Brisbane. He started at Baywood in 2019. Here's an insight into Chris...

Describe your role at Baywood:

I’m the key link between the mill operations & customers while building relationships with customers trying to predict market trends to then allocate stock to the appropriate customers, the product that is left over I then sell to the matching product market & much more.

What Baywood core value matters to you most and why?

There’s Always A Way, this has been drilled into me from the beginning of my working life, that “No” is never an answer, instead provide options or alternatives.

What do you like most about working at Baywood?

My boss, (Brownie Points). I love having the ability to assist our customers with their timber needs while making long standing friendships with our customers, it’s really fun.

How would you describe our culture?

Having great leaders in the workplace that strive for excellence, encouraging a culture where your colleagues become mates.

What is your favourite quote or life advice?

“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope, where once there was only despair.” – Nelson Mandela, 2000

What is on the top of your bucket list?

Travel to Bora Bora, staying in an over water bungalow.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

Going to the local park to shoot some hoops or watching Footy (any sport really) over a BBQ with mates.
