Mark Raymond

Managing Director

The founder of Raymond Plumbing, Mark Raymond, had a very early start in the plumbing industry. Born in South Australia in 1971, Mark attended the Goodwood Technical High School – a trade school – at age 12. The trade experience he gained every day at this school kick-started his love of plumbing and gasfitting.

Mark joined the military at age 17 and during his service, he completed a plumbing and gasfitting apprenticeship. He also helped build the RAAF base in Scherger, worked on the Range control building in Singleton and also completed Facilities Management in Canberra for the Chief Engineer Office at Duntroon Army Barracks.

After leaving the military, Mark moved to Cairns and began working as a maintenance plumber. In 2006 he decided to start his own plumbing business. Ever since, Raymond Plumbing has flourished and Mark is thrilled to be doing what he loves to do, every single day!

On his days off, Mark enjoys bushwalking, running, bird watching, astronomy and rock collecting. He has a deep love of learning, so continuously pursues activities like learning new languages (he speaks Arabic and Spanish), acting classes and he is also involved in his local Rotary club.
