Chairman & Company Founder
Bruce Ellery is the founder of Chelgrave Contracting and he has extensive experience in the labour hire industry. Bruce is an electrician by trade and, though he first started working as a contractor, it wasn’t long before he moved on to supervisory and then management roles. It is this ground-level knowledge and experience, combined with his strong work ethic and drive to succeed that gave Bruce a competitive advantage when he established Chelgrave in 1979. Bruce quickly positioned Chelgrave as one of the premier suppliers of trades and related services in Australia, a reputation that has only grown and strengthened over the years. As Managing Director, Bruce is instrumental in shaping the reputation and direction of the company and he is still hands-on today.
