Former member of the Australian Army elite SAS regiment, and Afghanistan veteran Scott Houston was back in Perth in 2008, putting the finishing touches to his new home he had just completed for his young family. In a dramatic turn he saw the opportunity to develop an emergency response business, mortgaging his new home to gather the funds together.

In six years the business has experienced “hockey stick” growth with revenues rising 7-fold over the last two years to over $15mn this financial year and a quadrupling of staff numbers to 90. The business is extremely profitable and has plenty of opportunities to rise even higher.
