Stonehurst Mountain Estate Owners Association would like to welcome Christopher J Nel as our new Maintenance Manager.

Chris, a local Southern Suburbs resident, has a long and illustrious history with the Navy, where he acquired a wide range of technical and logistical skills, including project management, instrumentation, construction, training, firefighting, first aid, and conflict resolution.

Chris has been appointed to manage all maintenance aspects of the common property at Stonehurst Mountain Estate, including the Lifestyle Centre, under the direction of Estate Management and the Trustees.
