Brett Birkill co-founded Prime Mover Workwear along with his wife Wandy in 2004, before selling the business in 2017 for $10.4 million.

Along with the sale of the company warehouse, Birkill had $15 million after closing it, and used it to fund his next business venture — property development business Birkill Developments.

Birkill hit the ground running, buying a townhouse development a month after handing over Prime Mover Workwear.

“It took a couple of months to get that block into motion, we started from the ground up, met as many good and new people that we could, and took a lot of skills from the previous business we sold,” says Birkill.
