Bill France was educated at Middle Swan primary school and then Governor Stirling senior high school. In 1977 he started his working life at ALCOA of Australia Ltd Alumina Refinery at Pinjarra Western Australia. Bill was employed as a trainee mechanical draftsman but soon switched to surveying after the refinery surveyor requested help as he had no assistant for his work.
This surveyor was Malcolm Torkington who trained as a surveyor and draftsman with the royal engineers and worked throughout the world. Malcolm was a gentle man and highly valued mentor who enjoyed passing on his expertise and experiences not only in surveying and drafting but also photography. After a number of years Bill decided to formalize his education and attended the Western Australian Institute of Technology to study Surveying. Throughout his study Bill achieved a number of awards including the Eric Brook award 1981, PHM Survey Equipment award 1982 and the DCL Surveying instruments award in 1983.
Bill gained his Bachelor of Applied Science Degree in Surveying and Mapping in 1983 and left for Bahrain in the Middle East, working for Associated Surveys (now Fugro) and was subcontracted to Ballast-Nedam Group NV. An addition to the family saw Bill return to Western Australia and start work at Brook and Marsh as a cadet articled surveyor to Alan Marsh. Bill achieved his registration and Certificate of Competency as a Licensed Surveyor in 1986 and in 2003 Bill and his wife Lee purchased the company.
Since that time Bill has continued in his role as Director of Brook and Marsh Surveyors, further developing his extensive network and supporting the growth of not only Brook and Marsh but other local businesses. Bill is a member of the WA Business Conscious Association and the Surveying And Spatial Sciences Institute.
Lee gained her qualification as a registered nurse in 1980 and worked within the health industry in this capacity until she stepped away and raised two children. Later returning to the workforce, Lee took up a position as a Medical receptionist for a further seven years until 2003 when Lee and Bill made the decision to purchase the company.
Lee came on board as joint Director and Secretary, bringing her exceptional skills in people management and administration, further developing her skills and providing business and office management including but not limited to the scheduling of jobs, accounts, customer liaison and the coordination of subdivisions separate to areas of survey. Lee’s passion and drive combined with her extensive experience allows her to communicate over a broad scope of stakeholders and effectively oversees the efficient functioning of the business.
