Ross Doonan is the founder and director of DECO Australia. Ross has extensive senior management experience as GM and CEO, working across a wide range of industries throughout his career including manufacturing, building, mining, food processing and technology transfer.
In 2004, Ross established DECO Australia (formerly Decorative Imaging) after realising the potential of a new, ground-breaking powder coating sublimation technology that had been developed in Italy. After travelling to Italy to learn more about the manufacturing process, the aluminium finishing business was set up and their leading timber grain finish DecoWood® was born.
Ross’s philosophy was simple; to deliver a unique, high value and aesthetically pleasing durable finish for aluminium building products, whilst also delivering exceptional standards of quality and service to customers. Ross believes it is these values (combined with a lot of dedication and hard work) that have been pivotal to the success of DECO Australia and is proud to see these values continue to flow through the business today.
Ross has tertiary qualifications in Engineering and Science, and a master’s degree in Management.
