Director of Leadership Development & Marketing – Co-Founder
Artemis is a born visionary who loves to see people thrive and reach their potential.
In her words, “I want to make the impossible possible.” Artemis’s passion and drive are instrumental in Sevaan’s continued growth and expansion.
In fact, without Artemis it’s possible the company would never have existed.
Twenty years ago, Artemis turned round to her husband and co-founder Jim and said, “You need to stop teaching things to other people and start working for yourself.”
And like the smart man that he is, Jim listened. Now the couple proudly helm one of Australia’s leading metal fabrication and machining companies.
Artemis has spearheaded Sevaan Group’s leadership program, the ongoing workplace training that she personally oversees, to help her team take on new skills both on and off the factory floor.
“Leadership is everything,” says Artemis. “Not just for me and for Jim but for the entire team. We’ve invested in creating an environment where people cannot just work, but learn and grow. Now we have 70 people who are passionate about manufacturing.”
Artemis is also fiercely proud of the Sevaan Academy, a next level apprenticeship program that invests in the future of manufacturing in Australia.
“Our apprentices come here and they learn the skills of life and how to be part of an organisation,” says Artemis. “We give them the tools to unleash their ability.”
And as a leader, Artemis is optimistic about the opportunities of Industry 4.0, the world’s next industrial revolution.
“The future is so bright for manufacturing,” says Artemis, “the ‘Smart Factory’ transformation is happening now and the opportunities are going to be huge.”
