John Castaldo

Project Manager

Cabinet Maker, Chisholm Tafe

John joined LTKI in 2018 and within a very short time, became immediately a valuable addition to the team.

His experience is varied. John completed his cabinet making apprenticeship at our factory, TLD Kitchens in 2007 and since then, has gained loads of experience as a young builder in the residential construction field, so he brings a multi-tasking range of skills to the role. Importantly, as a qualified cabinet maker he inherently understands how ‘the little boxes’ are constructed, he brings with him, his previous experience in construction, work as a Technical Detailer, Project Manager.

John, besides managing and supervising our projects, is also very much a “hands on” individual, who can regularly be found with his sleeves rolled up lending a hand whenever it’s needed, onsite.

With this experience gained over nearly two decades in the industry, John uses his well-honed problem solving skills to think through most challenges and overcome obstacles in the moment and on the job. His excellent time management and decision making skills prove most useful when working in someone’s home and time is of the essence.

He prides himself on his communication, an integral part of his role is bridging the gap between client, designer, factory, installer and tradesmen. When problems arise, as they regularly do on a building site, John has to resolve issues in an efficient manner, keeping everyone abreast of the changes and ensuring the promised and to be expected, excellent result for his client, within the allocated time frame. This takes great patience, skill and a strong “can do” attitude, add in his respectful and hard working-nature and you have an excellent Project Manager.

Out of hours, you’ll find John at home with Emma and Gianna,  their lovely little baby girl, or off somewhere, fishing, camping, hiking or renovating his home and occasionally helping a mate with their renovations somewhere.
