Hi my name is Jacob Krause. I am the manager here at Verto Kitchens and I have been in the cabinet making industry since 2002 and have been with Verto from 2010. I installed kitchens for over 10 years and have now moved onto designing. I grew up here on the Gold Coast and it will always be my home.
The best part about my job is making amazing improvements to other family's homes and seeing their reactions when we bring life to what we have designed on the computer. I look at each kitchen as if it was my own and help clients have the kitchen they have always dreamed about. I have always had a high standard of work and so do all the team here at Verto. I am looking forward to working with you to design your new kitchen.
I have been in the cabinet making industry since I started my apprenticeship in 2002.
Born and raised in Melbourne I spent 11 years manufacturing and installing kitchens and shop fit outs, including budget kitchens right through to high end projects like the high rollers room at Crown Casino.
I moved to the Gold Coast in 2013 and have been a part of the Verto Kitchens team ever since, first as an installer and now as a designer.
Hi, my name is Kim Enriquez. I started my cabinet making career on the Gold Coast in 2007 after finishing high school. Since then I have been fortunate enough to work in many aspects of the trade including shopfitting, government projects, high end restaurants and bars and bespoke kitchens all over Australia.
I spent two years in London, England to gain further invaluable experience where I was able to secure a job as a technical engineer specialising in cabinet making and carpentry. Upon arriving back in Australia in 2013 I obtained a diploma in project management whilst also working for Verto Kitchens, where I have been able to use the concepts learned in maximising efficiency in day to day business.
Hi, my name is Stew. I started my apprenticeship in Cabinet making in 2002. In that time I have worked on a large range of projects from small kitchens and joinery fit outs up to high-end luxury kitchens. I have been lucky enough to see most of Australia traveling as a shopfitter fitting out some of the worlds biggest brand retail stores.
In 2018 I took the move off the tools to become part of the Verto team as a designer. I really enjoy bringing customers ideas to life in the design process by incorporating function with their chosen finishes to deliver their dream kitchen. I look forward to the opportunity of working with you.
I started my apprenticeship as a first-year cabinet maker back in 2006. I worked in high end custom furniture and cabinetry based in Sydney for 10 years before deciding to make the move up here on the Gold Coast. I have been fortunate to become a valuable member of a great team here at Verto Kitchens where I have been able to utilise my skills and knowledge. My role here at Verto Kitchens is an Installer, I love what I do and take pride in all my work. I am a perfectionist who takes special attention to detail until both my customers and I are completely happy with the final results. I look forward to working alongside our designers and your needs to create your dream kitchen.
