Meet the Team

Meet the Spanlift Team who make it all happen!




KEVIN SEELEY - Executive Director

Kevin has a background in commercial pumps and pumping stations.

He has experience in large contracts, time critical projects and supply chain logistics.

As with all of our executive directors Kevin is very hands-on at Spanlift and takes an interest in every facet of the business. 

COLIN WRIGHT - Executive Director

Being a builder, and running his own building supply company Colin brings attention to detail. Starting out in business at a young age, Colin is always keen to meet new people and create new business.

Not being afraid of jumping right in, Spanlift benefits from Colin's regular visits and frequent contact.





GARRY GRACE - Sales & Marketing Manager

Being deeply involved in the manufacture and design of buildings for many years Garry has become entrenched in Spanlift. When it comes to some design flair or methodology he is keen to help out. 

GRAHAM DOWIE - Building Consultant

Graham has spent a large portion of his working life in sheds and buildings. Spending a lot of his time on the road going from client to site to farm is now a regular cycle. Grahams Spanlift ute racks up kilometres and visits day in day out. Graham is keen to meet on site in view of making sure that we offer the correct solution in the best possible way.

P.S. football is a regular interest! 

CHARLES GRACE - Building Consultant 


PRATIK THANKI - Marketing Specialist

JOE GRACE - Wine Barrel Storage Specialist

Having been at Spanlift since 2013, it's safe to say Joe knows a thing or two about our range of barrel racks and grape bins.  As well as keeping a sharp eye on Operations and Production, Joe is frequently travelling the country visiting our valued clients, and working with them to ensure they have the best products for their purpose.  With his attention to detail and extensive product knowledge, Joe is an integral member of the team. 

In his own time, Joe finds himself scouting the countryside with a different purpose....finding and enjoying a good drop of red wine!

ALLAN KENNEDY - Production Manager

Allan is the ideal fit for our production management role. He started his career in steel fabrication, went sub-contract erected sheds, then was a site manager for a timber mill equipment supplier, then started on the workshop floor at Spanlift and has now worked his way up to managing production. Overseeing building designs and fabrication methods and times is part of Allan’s everyday life.

Allan is an old seadog from way back. He is often out catching crayfish from his own boat…and certainly enjoys the occasional sea cruise. 

JANELLE BUCHNER - Sales Assistant

Janelle’s involvement with the Spanlift Team began when she joined the workforce in 2012 as a Sales Assistant.  Now married and working part-time, Janelle works passionately with both winemakers and farmers making sure all her clients are looked after with utmost care, and communicated with thoroughly throughout their journey with Spanlift (and for years to come).  No matter when your shed was built or your Gorilla bins or racks were delivered… you’ll hear from her sometime! 


GREG SPICER - Workshop Manager
