Sharyn Watson is the Founder & current Managing Director of the highly successful Qld Company, Watmar Electrical & Air, based on the Gold Coast but servicing the South East Queensland Area.
Sharyn is one of very few women in Australia who hold an Electrical Contractors License in her own name. She founded Watmar Electrical in 2013 and has grown the business from small beginnings as electrical services to expansion with air conditioning installation and maintenance and the company now employs 18 staff.
Her strong work ethic and determination to succeed have been the driving forces behind Sharyn’s achievements in business and in life.
Beginning in the hospitality industry, without a Year 12 Certificate or a University Degree, Sharyn relied on her natural business management skills. She spent over ten years in roles with Marriott Surfers Paradise Resort and Sheraton Mirage, including four years on the opening team at Palazzo Versace.
In 2008 Sharyn’s entrepreneurial spirit and desire to help young people succeed found expression in her first start-up business, Solutions Training.
Established to offer school-based trainees a professional standard of training and education in the retail and hospitality industries, Solutions Training delivered quality certification and management diploma training for over 200 trainees and apprentices with a staff of seven.
For three years Sharyn developed and managed both Solutions Training and Watmar Electrical & Air until Solutions Training was sold in 2016 to her biggest client for 20 x the start-up costs. Respected and trusted in her network for her business ability, her advice is often sought after and valued by other independent business owners.
Sharyn manages to balance the demands of her business alongside her dedicated involvement in charity and community work. She has been awarded Rotarian of the Year and named a Paul Harris Fellow for her dedication to projects that significantly improve the quality of life for individuals and communities.
In 2020, she was also awarded Gold Coast Woman in Business of the Year award as recognition of her efforts in both her own field and her work with the community.
As a Director of BidCrete, Sharyn plans to use all of these skills to assist the growth of the organisation and help make a sustainable change in the concrete industry.
