Leon Thomson - Thomson BILT

Leon Thomson

Managing Director
Hi I'm Leon Thomson and I'm one of the managing directors of Thomson BILT. I'm a bricklayer by trade completing my apprenticeship locally with a local builder. Then I travelled around Australia working before settling back into the Mount start my own business contracting to local builders bricklaying, concreting and tiling. I then furthered my studies in the construction industry to gain my domestic and commercial builders license, which has enabled Thomson BILT to expand its offerings over the years. The building industry is what I know and love and enjoy every aspect from the concept with clients, to the design phase all the way to the project completion. Out side of work I love spending time with my family, getting out in our caravan and exploring, relaxing at home with family and friends over a quiet beer and BBQ.

Julia Holdman

Managing Director
My name is Julia Holdman and I have been in the building industry for 2 years. My background consisted of a tax accountant for many years, then working with a private company in the Rural Industry for 8 years as a CFO/Manager. I bought into Thomson Bilt in 2018 and then Buildpro was purchased in 2020. I am from a rural background and travelling is my thing. I have trekked the desert in Phoenix Arizona USA, gone on Safaris in Zimbabwe, Africa and shopped till I have dropped in China and have been everywhere inbetween. I have driven around Australia and would love to do it all again. I love high performance cars. My greatest achievement was having 3 beautiful girls Tayler, Jordan and Portia and who knows one day they might like to come into the building industry and join me. I have learnt a lot about sheds, I did think that I knew a lot about hay sheds but you can never stop learning. We have a great team at Thomson Bilt and Im sure if you have built a shed through us or would love to you will not be disappointed.
