Courtney Powys
Director
Octocom Communication Services

INSTALLING a new stereo in his Kingswood 20 years ago was the first step; then came installing stereos in his family’s and friend’s cars.

It didn’t take long for Courtney Powys to realise he could turn his enthusiasm for electronics into a business.

Thus was formed Octocom Communications Services, a Perth-based business that specialises in two-way radio, satellite phones and vehicle tracking installations predominately in the truck and earthmoving industries.

Starting in 1999 with what he describes as “Me, a van, and a box of tools”, Mr Powys believes it is his inability to turn a customer away that has led to his success.

Never being afraid to have a go is a philosophy that Mr Powys lives by and he has fostered this view within his company. Mr Powys has built the business to the point that he is now able to peruse a lifelong dream of competing in the 2014-2015 Clipper round the world yacht race.
