Industry all-rounder adds further depth
to Communities division

RPM Communities division has expanded our sales and management capability with the appointment of senior management professional Jim Grivas.

Jim brings 18 years’ experience and a diverse breadth of knowledge across the building and development industry to RPM. He has worked in sales, marketing and managerial positions for some of Australia’s leading builders and has a strong network across the house and land sales spectrum.

Jim’s depth of experience gives our capability another edge in terms of product mix, design, and pricing strategies to ensure our clients are delivering the type of product the market wants.

Jim joins RPM after nine years as general manager with Urbanedge Building Group during which time he launched the Urbanedge brand into Queensland, grew overseas channel sales and introduced unique, architecturally designed homes into the greenfield market.

Prior to Urbanedge Jim spent six years at award-winning builder Porter Davis during a period of fast growth, where he undertook sales and marketing roles before being promoted to business manager.

Jim said he is looking forward to working with Victoria’s market leader in the greenfield space.

“I’ve known RPM for many years, and there were strong synergies between my last company and this new position from a cultural standpoint,” he said. “RPM has a really modern culture and a progressive approach in everything they do. The way they strategically apply their research to how they market and manage their clients’ estates is really on point.

“I wanted a new challenge and the opportunity to work with the best, and this is definitely the place to be.”

We look forward to introducing Jim to our clients over the coming weeks.
