Pelican Waters and Henzells have honoured the outstanding contribution of several key team members whose recent anniversaries represent a combined 45 years’ service for the family owned business.
Celebrating the major milestones are Pelican Waters Office Manager Sandy Callaghan (18 years), Pelican Waters Project Manager Phil Tyrer (17 years) and Henzells Sales Secretary Lisa Mollenhauer (10 years).
Meanwhile one of the business’s original team members, financial controller Steve Webb, will celebrate his 24th anniversary later in the year.

Sandy Callaghan said it was the unique family values and leadership approach of directors Roy Henzell and Garry Waters that resulted in so many staff enjoying long and rewarding careers.
“They look after you, and because of that you want to give back as much as you can,’’ Sandy said.
“When you like what you do so much, it’s not like coming to work. I also love the variety and the new challenges that keep you hungry, as well as the camaraderie that comes with being part of a great team.”
Formerly from northern New South Wales, Sandy moved to the Sunshine Coast – a favourite camping destination for her and her husband – just prior to the property boom in 1999.
After working a variety of admin jobs, she joined Pelican Waters when the Greg Norman designed golf course and residential precinct was being launched, a project that would be a major catalyst for the masterplanned community’s ongoing success.
“Despite all we have achieved, I feel like the best is still to come,” said Sandy referring to the new world class town centre and marina precinct currently under construction at the southern end of the estate.
“I’m looking forward to another 18 years,’’ she said.
Phil Tyrer worked with infrastructure company Cardno on the engineering of Pelican Waters’ first water-based project, Lake Magellan prior to moving full-time to Pelican Waters in 2000 where he has guided the development’s major projects ever since.
Since launching her real estate career in 1994 Lisa Mollenhauer has become one of the most valued and respected members of the Henzells team, renowned for honesty, hard work, industry knowledge and friendly approach.
Henzells and Pelican Waters directors Roy Henzell and Garry Waters commended Sandy, Phil, Lisa and Steve for their outstanding contributions.
“To dedicate so many years to a career is no small achievement and to do it with the level of commitment, professionalism, passion and loyalty that these people have done is an inspiration to everybody who works here,’’ Garry said.
“We have been very fortunate to have these people with us for so much of the Henzells and Pelican Waters journey. They have played a huge role in shaping the success of the business over the decades,’’ Roy said.
