As a second generation panel beater and spray painter, Simon Leven jumped at the opportunity to purchase his father’s auto body repair business in 2009.

"Admittedly obsessed with the smash repair industry, I began making dramatic product and equipment changes to complement the business’ already established reputation for professionalism by having the most advanced repair technology available on the market."

Simon prides himself on reinvesting money and energy back into the business. He loves helping his team accomplish their personal and professional goals, celebrating wins and creating an environment where everyone is excited to come to work.

Jake Kent

Panel Beater + Spray Painter

Equal parts passionate and jovial, Jake loves a challenge, which is why we were not surprised when he began his second trade. With over five years of experience, using the word ‘ambitious’ to describe him would be an understatement.

Vicki Wolstenholme

HR Manager

Since 2018, Vicki has made it her mission to ensure that as an organisation, LSR supports our team culture, promotes employee empowerment and provides ongoing support for every employee’s needs. When she’s not working with our HR and WHS systems, Vicki can be found (trying) to play golf.


We want the name LSR to become synonymous with the words: Leadership, Service + Results.

We also want to continue to be the employer of choice in the Central West. By ‘employer of choice’ we mean we want our team members to come to work every day knowing that they’re going to have a good time. They’re going to be listened to, respected, challenged, celebrated, and given a career that will enrich every aspect of their life.

As a proudly diverse group of individuals, we will maintain our inclusive approach to recruitment and ability to facilitate open and honest communication so that everyone who works at LSR knows they’re part of a business that’s invested in the growth of each team member, not just the company’s.
