Gibsons Community Building Society is proud to announce The Reeves Family & Gibson Building Supplies as the recipient of the 2022 Darren Entwistle Community Builder Award.
The Award, established in 2017, honours outstanding community leadership helping to build a healthy, caring and thriving community.
The Reeves Family/Gibsons Building Supplies (GBS) is being honoured for being one of the longest serving, family-owned businesses on the Coast, established in 1947 in the spirit of “neighbours helping neighbours”. Julie Reeves is a 3rd generation CEO following in the footsteps of her grandfather, Dick Fitchett, and father, Barrie Reeves.
GBS, with two locations serving the Sunshine Coast, contributes to local economic development and is a significant contributor to a healthy and caring community. GBS also played a significant role in helping build Gibsons Public Market.
