Meet your team who’ll be on the tools:
Phil Nearhos, Director
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, Leading-hand Carpenter
Jono is PNC Built’s leading carpenter 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).
Nicholas Mctainsh, Head Builder
Nick has been in the building industry for 14 years and is the head builder ‘monkey’ at PNC Built (his words). Nick grew up working with his Dad and Grandad in the home workshop and honed his skills as a carpenter renovating homes before joining the team. Nick is a man of many talents and has a double degree in a Bachelor of Contemporary Music. When he’s not on the job site, you’ll catch Nick fishing, skating, surfing and seeing live music.
Yeshi Rabten, Carpenter
Yeshi joins PNC as a carpenter with two years’ industry experience. Originally from Bhutan, Yeshi worked as a freelance film industry composer but now calls Brisbane home. When he’s not building and renovating homes, Yeshi likes to cook up a storm in the kitchen, garden and play guitar.
Nino Hatzifotis, Apprentice
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.
Pippa, 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.
