Territory success story

Jason Walsh

Portrait shot of Jason Walsh

It takes a unique individual to grow a small business, sell to a competitor and still remain at the helm of his Territory enterprise, but Jason has accomplished this all by the age of 35.

After arriving in Darwin in 2008, qualified refrigeration mechanic, Jason worked in the local mechanical services industry for three years before taking the leap into sole-tradership as Select Services. No small business comes without its battles, whether facing major health issues 18 months in or sleeping at work with your newborn just to make the next deadline, but it was persistence, dedication and passion that kept Jason going.

For Jason, growing into a multi-million-dollar business meant learning from mistakes, making the right choices and nurturing great relationships. By 2019, this had turned Select Services into a $5.5 million per annum commercial air-conditioning business, and thrown this Territory team into the path of Brisbane-based HVAC solutions company, VAE Group, providing Jason with the next level of support, culture and business growth.
