Meet Our Proud Management Team

Chris Parrish

Chris Parrish, our Director, embarked on his carpentry journey at the age of 18, immersing himself in the trade under the guidance of a seasoned builder. This experience produced a range of skills and knowledge, not only as a carpenter, but all facets of domestic trades.

Completing his apprenticeship a remarkable one and a half years ahead of schedule, Chris honed his craft within a team of carpenters, refining his attention to detail. In 2013, he embraced the challenge of entrepreneurship, and a few years later he earned his builder’s license. With determination to grow and offer larger scale projects to his clients, Chris invested his time into building relationships with the Peninsula’s most trusted trades and suppliers to ensure he consistently delivers on time, within budget and is always up to date with the latest innovations and regulations.

A good-natured and honest individual, Chris takes pride in the reputation he has built. He tirelessly maintains the professionalism and growth of Proud Projects, always knowing he has an excellent team supporting and backing him.

Beyond work, he finds joy in camping, kayaking, and outdoor adventures with his wife Emily, and Proud pooch, Wally.

Maor Star
Site Manager

Maor is an accomplished carpenter with an abundance of experience, whose skills are an asset to Proud Projects. His ability to contribute innovative ideas to both clients and the business is unparalleled, and he takes immense pride in delivering top-notch finishes in his work.

Having started his journey as an apprentice alongside Chris in 2010, Maor has since held a range of roles, including Lead Carpenter, Foreman, and Quality Control Officer within various companies. Proud Projects is fortunate to have his expertise on board.


Away from work, Maor revels in camping, road biking, scuba diving, and embarking on adventures with his two young girls. A true carpentry enthusiast, he even undertook a complete remodel of his caravan from scratch!
