Brisbane, Australia, October 17, 2023 – Avery Dennison, a global leader in materials science and manufacturing, welcomes Graeme Doolan as the latest addition to our Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) team, a key move in the company’s ongoing commitment to enhancing its training and development initiatives. Appointed to the role of Technical Specialist, Graeme is a renowned name in the automotive film industry with over 25 years of experience, specialising in paint protection and automotive window films installations. Graeme's appointment as a technical specialist will accelerate Avery Dennison's training capabilities and enhance the company’s technical support for their customers throughout ANZ.
With over 15 years of experience as a retail store owner, Graeme consistently explored innovative technologies and sought out the latest products to provide his customers with exceptional offerings. His unwavering passion for paint protection film has seen it evolve from a practical protection product into one of the most sought-after automotive customisation solutions on the market. Says Graeme, "I've always loved working with the film and staying up to date with the new technology and techniques. I've spent the last few years honing my skills as a trainer, which has strengthened my understanding of the product and the nuances of its installation. Sharing my experience has helped me develop a worldwide network of leaders in the industry. I try to stay active in installations and projects to stay on the forefront of products and application techniques."
When asked for his advice for those considering investing in a PPF training course, Graeme emphasises the importance of taking notes, following established processes, and learning the fundamentals. He believes learning from failures is essential to growth and encourages everyone to persevere and absorb as much knowledge as possible.
When asked what he hopes people would take away from his training sessions, Graeme says, "It is absolutely critical to understand the importance of process; the fundamentals are the key to your success. I also want to teach people how to practically apply the skills and techniques they learn during the training and offer tips and tricks based on real-life industry experience."
The new state-of-the-art Avery Dennison Training and Innovation Centre, launched earlier this year in Brisbane, is designed to service customers, end users, and installers in the production and installation of our products across key segments such as Auto Aftermarket, Architectural, Window Films and Corporate Branding. It also supports the ongoing expansion of our highly valued technical services team across the Asia Pacific region.
