Hi my name is Jacob Krause. I am an installer at Verto Kitchens and I have been cabinet making for 12 years. I live here on the Gold Coast and enjoy the work I do as I get to see changes and improvements in the homes I work in every day. I take pride in my work and every job I undertake is completed as if it was in my own home.
In my spare time I spend time with my family and enjoy going to the beach for a surf whenever I can.
Jacob now forms part of our design team
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.
I have been cabinet making for 19 years, I started my apprenticeship in 1997 in Sale Victoria. Once I completed my apprenticeship I worked for a building company who built a 134 room resort including all kitchens, laundries, vanities and furniture. I then moved to the Gold Coast in 2005, and I was installing kitchens in new homes all over the Gold Coast. I then started working at Verto Kitchens in 2014. I am now part of the design team at Verto Kitchens.
Kim is our newest designer having moved from an installers role.
He completed his apprenticeship in 2011 with All Trades Queensland in three years instead of four, he quickly established himself as natural with the cabinet making trade. In 2012 he moved to London, U.K where he would gain further invaluable experience abroad, working as a technical engineer for British Sky Broadcasting specializing in cabinet making and carpentry. In 2015 Kim was able to obtain his Diploma in Project Management where he uses the concepts learnt to maximize efficiency in day to day business.
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.
