ABOUT STOP THIEF SECURITY
Stop Thief Security has been a family owned and operated Gold Coast business since 1990, currently owned by us, Lee and Julie Jordan, and owned by our families before us.
After being in the business of manufacturing security windows and doors for as long as we have been, we have seen it all.
In fact, we have come up against some unusual and very challenging Security Screen installations in our time, odd angles, architectural wonders, construction dilemmas…you name it, we’ve seen it (and most probably installed a security screen on it).
Originally my father owned Stop Thief Security so when I first began working in the business I was working in the business with my dad and my husband Lee.
When I came into the business I ran it alongside Lee for 3 years while my father mentored and guided us along the way. We eventually bought the business from him in 2007 and have owned and run it since then.
Born and raised on the Gold Coast, I am a 4th generation Gold Coast woman so my feet are firmly planted in this region.
My background is in Sports Science which I studied at university. I then went on to work in the fitness industry at the Marriott Resort for around 5 years before catching the travel bug and heading off overseas on a 3 year adventure.
Travelling and working my way around the globe, I spent time in the USA, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and the UK.
I spent another 5 years at the Marriott, gaining valuable experience working in the Events department before making my way into the family business, Stop Thief Security. The rest, as they say, is history.
Lee and I have 2 children together and currently live the Arundel area.
I have been on the Gold Coast since 2001, at that time I moved here to start working side by side with Julie’s father in Stop Thief Security.
I worked in the business as the fitter and manufacturer while learning all aspects of the daily operations of the business.
Julie and I bought the business in 2007 and have been running it together successfully since then.
Although I was born in the UK I grew up in Brisbane, having been in Australia since 1974 when I was only 2 years old.
I studied as a teacher at University, majoring in maths and Japanese before eventually heading off on my own overseas adventure to Japan. I stayed in Japan for a year working in hospitality to support myself.
After coming back to Australia I worked with my father in the building industry for 5 years where I learned some invaluable skills which I have been able to apply in Stop Thief Security.
This experience gave me great insight into the building industry and it’s this experience which has allowed me to have a unique perspective when it comes to installing screens. I am able to install screens across a wide variety of sometimes unusual and difficult applications. It’s a challenge I work well with.
A little known fact about me is that I speak fluent Japanese, thanks to the year I spent living there. My other great love is golf, I’m an avid golfer and love nothing more than getting on the golf course as often as I possibly can.
