Industry Ambassador – Hamish McGauchie

Hamish grew up tinkering with cars in father’s auto trimming workshop, which is where he gained his love of cars.
When at school Hamish decided that he wanted to make a career out of what he had learnt.

Hamish began his Cert III in Automotive (Vehicle Body Trimming) through the Kangan Batman Institute of TAFE after he completed his high school education. Hamish showed such passion and talent for his work that he completed his 4year apprenticeship in only 2 years.

Hamish is involved with all aspects of the business from the practical side of auto trimming to the general management of the business. Although he does a bit of everything what he really loves is the custom design work he does and one day he would one day love to build a Summernats Grand Champion car.

Hamish believes there is great satisfaction in what he does as he gets to be creative, his job has variety and it is flexible enough to let him pursue his other passion Ballet.
