Meet the Lauxes Team

CEO + Heads of Departments

Tim Dawson

CEO / ENTREPRENEUR / MASTER MANIFESTOR

Tim is the genius behind our innovative grates. He is also an inspiring leader who always encourages us to be the best we can. Tim enjoys family time on weekends with his wife and three children, challenging himself at True Grit or Tough Mudder events and changing the world “ONE GRATE AT A TIME”.

Justin Corke

HEAD OF SALES / R & D / FITNESS FANATIC

Justin is our ‘SUPERSTAR’ he throws himself into any task. From handyman to Video star and Head of Sales. His charismatic charm has the ladies swooning, but we love him because he is a funny, easy going larrikin.

Vai Nomani

HEAD OF OPERATIONS / FIXO MAN / MR SMOOTH

Vai is your go to man for technical knowledge of our products. He ensures our products move around the country the most efficient way possible. Out of the office, you’ll find him playing footy, coaching his team or being a social butterfly after dark.

Mariano Juarez

HEAD OF MARKETING / ARTIST / FUTSAL PLAYER

Mariano (Nano) loves to design, create and question the status quo, giving life to our core value “we don’t do boring”. His ability to see things differently coupled with his design skills strengthen our winning team. He loves to play football or futsal regularly and believes that pineapple does in fact belong on pizza.

Barb Dawson

HEAD OF PEOPLE & CULTURE / PEOPLE PERSON / WELLNESS ADVOCATE

Barb is a real people person and her warm friendly manner is very engaging when connecting with team members. She has an innate ability to find absolute gold when attracting new team players. Out of the office, you can find Barb attending Boot Camp Fitness sessions, being a Super-Nan and meal prepping for the week ahead.

Sales & Operations

Casey Mawer

GENERAL MANAGER / MS DELIGHT

Casey has acquired superpowers in communication through her love of travel and adventure. Her ability to listen before taking action means you will get to your solution sooner rather than later. She is passionate about creating memories with the people she loves.

Javier Diaz

AREA MANAGER / MR COOL / CULTURE KING

Javi is curious by nature and is constantly seeking to learn anything he can. Being such a cool dude, he wants to travel the world and learn about diverse cultures while sampling some of his favourite foods like Sushi, Korean BBQ or Tacos. If he seems a little reserved or mysterious, he’s probably sharpening his skill set in some way or he could be secretly planning something.

Jorge Partida

AREA MANAGER / PRODUCT MASTER / MR SOCIAL

Jorge came to us with a wealth of knowledge for industry practices and experience. He’ll be out and about visiting our customers and supporting them with resources and information. His enthusiasm is contagious and could possibly outdo Tim as being a bad influence on a night out with the team. Jorge’s easy going and chatty nature makes him the perfect fit for the Lauxes team.

Lourdes Ochoa

ACCOUNTS COORDINATOR / MISS SUNSHINE / DANCING QUEEN

Lourdes won us over with her bright, positive nature. She’s super smart and quick as a whip to keep the boys in line. Dancing is where her passion lies, and she finds that when she is dancing she is fully present and totally in the moment with the music, her movements and inner peace. She treasures the Christmas and New year traditions that bring the family together to appreciate each other, exchange gifts and celebrate. If it’s a hug you need, Lourdes will happily offer you some kindness and compassion.  

Aaron Warner

WAREHOUSE COORDINATOR / MR MUSCLE / FUNNY GUY

Aaron’s energy is contagious, and you can’t help but smile and laugh when he’s around. He’s passionate about fitness so we wouldn’t suggest you challenge him to an arm wrestle. Taking part in fundraising events for Cancer is close to the heart and important to Aaron and his family. We’ve heard he likes to experiment with cooking and I’m sure if you ask him nicely, he’d be happy to make you some of his famous waffles.

Individual/Virtual Collaborators

Marion Vista

TEAM SUPPORT LEADER / FOODIE / SUPER AUNT

Marion is committed to helping the company grow globally. She tackles anything we throw at her and always exceeds our expectations. Never underestimate Marion’s knowledge, she knows what makes all departments tick. Marion enjoys shopping and dining out when she’s not working.

Lauxes Ambassadors

Beau Algeri

INTERNATIONAL MANAGER / BBQ BOSS

Beau really knows his stuff, ask him anything about installing grates and you’ll get the very best advice. When he’s not on the road for Lauxes you’ll find him enjoying family time. Beau loves to show off his BBQ skills with family and friends.
