OUR LEGACY

  • Lesley Kemmis – Founder 1980

    After many years working as a retail clerk in the Northshore Dishwasher Centre NSW, and as a mother of four, Lesley saw first hand the rise in the popular use of  domestic home appliances such as dishwashers, and clothes dryers through a shift for convenience throughout the 1970’s. Seizing the opportunity, Lesley opened the flagship ‘Tymblack’ Sydney store in 1980. Working in the business full time and with the assistance of her late husband, Phillip and daughter, Judy; Tymblack saw great success as a leader in the home appliance retail sector and subsequently opened another three stores nationwide and evolved as specialists in electrical goods and home appliances.

    In 1990, Lesley handed over the operations of the Brisbane division of Tymblack, ‘Brisbane Appliance Sales’ to her daughter and son-in-law who relocated with their young family to Queensland in order to work and operate the store at a local level.

    The matriarch of the Brisbane Appliance Sales family, Lesley retired in 1995 after selling the remaining three Sydney stores. Her presence is always a welcome sight at Brisbane Appliance Sales, which she visits often, making the long journey from her picturesque country home in Berrima, NSW (complete with chicken coop and llama’s) to also visit her loving grandchildren and great children.

  • Leigh & Judy Mayne – Co-Directors 1990-2017

    Just two years into the business, 1990 saw Leigh and Judy take the reins at Brisbane Appliance Sales, then located within the Windsor Homemaker Centre. Brisbane Appliance Sales was at that time in its’ infancy with just two full time working owners and a small administration team. Over the proceeding years Leigh and Judy quickly established themselves as a formidable duo within the industry. Whilst both working within and growing the business full time, they are the proud parents of two; Daniel and Casey (both of whom are part of the BAS team) and subsequently loving grandparents to four grandchildren (Oliver, Ethan, Poppy and Leila) all born and raised here in Brisbane.

    Having recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary, Leigh and Judy are the backbone of Brisbane Appliance Sales. Under their care and guidance BAS has outgrown it’s premises twice and expanded from a husband and wife team to a 17+ strong team of dedicated retail and commercial professionals; many of whom have been members of our BAS family for more than 10 years.

    Working within the business full time for more than 25 years before retirement, Leigh now dedicates his time to establishing his kitchen-garden and is a valuable consultant to the business. Judy proudly maintains her full time role as ‘Senior Sales Consultant’; with un-matched industry knowledge and love for the business she so proudly forged.
