Hashem Mahmoud

Category: Medium to Large Business

Hashem Mahmoud landed in Australia from Lebanon in the spring of 1978, leaving behind a family and country devastated by the physical, social and psychological effects of a soul-wrenching civil war. Arming himself with the timeless qualities of resilience, courage and a conviction to succeed against all odds, Hashem sustained numerous blows of adversity before his success. In 1985, Hashem established Easy Rest, focusing on commercial & residential architectural joinery and by 1996, he created Rest Interior, an extension to the business, providing complete project management services including commercial fit-outs. From a 700m² factory and 3 employees in 1985, the company today boasts a 7,000m² state-of-the-art facility, employing 150 employees and is recognized as one of Australia’s Top 10 leaders in its industry.
