Our Team

Imagine having a team of experts helping you through a life-changing moment

That’s exactly what we do, and exactly what we have been doing since 2001. Meet the people who will keep you sane throughout your project.
Let's get started

Phil Nearhos

With 16 years experience building bespoke homes for clients, Phil has carved out a speciality as a luxury home builder in Brisbane’s inner-suburbs, project managing small renovations through to full-scale Queenslander transformations. Clients can expect to see Phil onsite as the project manager, master builder and client contact – three roles he juggles with a big smile. When he’s not on site you’ll find Phil surfing and golfing, or better yet, trying to fit both into the same day.

Jono Carothers

Jono is one of PNC Built’s carpenters and has 20 years’ industry experience under his (tool) belt. When it’s tools down for the weekend, this family man enjoys spending time with his two girls and spending time at the race track with his race horse called Niva (not Nino, we checked).

Ben Lowther

Ben is the gentle giant of the PNC Built team and is in charge of reaching things in high places. He brings 15 years’ experience to the worksite and has worked alongside Phil on and off for five years. When he is off, Benny heads overseas to Zambia to do community volunteer work and put his carpentry skills to good use by working on infrastructure projects at local schools (what a legend). In his spare time and when he’s not jumping out of planes for charity, Ben spends time with his young family surfing, camping and chilling at the beach.

Nino Hatzifotis

Nino might be the youngest member of the PNC Built team but don’t worry about this little builder-in-the-making. PNC’s resident apprentice prefers to pick on those not his own size, taking on the rest of the team with his cheeky sense of humour. When he’s not on the tools or sharing his lunch with Pippa, Nino likes to play the PS4, battling it out in alternate universes.

Katrina Richards
Admin & Accounts

Armed with an English Breakfast tea and a toolbelt of a different kind, Katrina takes care of all accounts and administration for PNC Built. With thirty years experience in record keeping, Katrina ensures the professionalism you find on site is reflected through every aspect of the business. When she’s not powering through paperwork like a ninja, she admits to binging on Netflix more than she probably should.

World’s Worst Guard Dog

Pippa is the youngest member of the PNC team, bringing three years experience of bone chewing, mud rolling and serial malting on anyone who tries to give her a pat. You’ll find her on site from time to time – although she proves more of a hinderance than a help, due to her penchant for chasing tennis balls and her golden mane getting tangled on everything.
