Brent Caithness – Director
Brent has been working in the film industry since 1996, initially as a window film installer, before shifting his focus to graphics and signage. As the CFS team has grown, Brent’s role has evolved to one focusing on project management, customer liaison/ new business development and managing our very competent team of installers and product specialists. That said, he’s still known to go back on the tools for specific jobs – particularly ones that require “thinking outside the box!”, and is still the primary contact for any graphics or signage requirements. Brent has been involved in both national and international work for 3M™ Australia.

Chris is currently on secondment, and is working with the Department of Health, WA in Occupational Safety and Health.
