Gabby Montagnese — New Age Caravans
Gabby Montagnese is one of a kind – managing director and owner of the fastest-growing Australian caravan manufacturing business that is leading the sector with its contemporary designs. Eight years as a product manager for a multinational electricity provider gave Gabby practical knowledge in IT, organisational change, business improvements and marketing that she transferred to Epping – based New Age Caravans in 2009. With the industry experiencing historically low building rates in 2010, Gabby revolutionised the industry by creating a modern range that has seen New Age Caravans become Australia’s biggest manufacturer of full-sized caravans, employing 160 people. Keeping current with the latest technology and construction methods has helped Gabby to expand facilities and hire locally at a time when manufacturing generally is uncertain. No stranger to the outdoors herself, Gabby heads to the coast as often as she possibly can.
“I firmly believe that access to the caravanning lifestyle helps families and couples come closer together and instils the ideals of community back into their lives.”
Congratulations Gabby for your well deserved position on this impressive list of successful female business leaders. The Northpoint Enterprise Park commend your achievements.
