Josie Harrison from Dynamic Closures

When Josie Harrison embarked on her career as an Office Junior a decade ago, little did she know that her journey would lead her to become a highly-respected National Project Manager for Dynamic Closures, a renowned manufacturer of shopfront security door solutions.

Now 30, Josie reflects on the investment of time and mentorship which has propelled her to new heights in her profession.

“In an age when many of my peers change employers every three years or so seeking career development, I chose to cultivate my opportunities internally, achieving goals during a period of market growth,” Josie says.

“Now I manage projects for financial institutions Australia-wide, acting as a conduit between our sales team, manufacturing division, installers and end user.”

Josie’s responsibilities as a National Project Manager are diverse and demanding. Working with architects, designers, structural engineers, builders and shopfitters, she designs door layouts, approves site drawings and manages budgets – tackling each task with unwavering dedication.

“Relationships in this large market segment have been nourished by time and consistency – I have known many of these contacts since I joined Dynamic.

“We tackled the challenges of managing the on-going building and fitout program for this sector during the COVID lockdowns and complications posed by varying State restrictions throughout the country with honesty and teamwork.”

Dynamic Closures Founder and Director Robert Horner says Josie is an asset to the team.

“Since the day Josie was employed, she has always been a committed employee, willing to learn more and do what she can. This is the sort of attitude that gets noticed,” Robert says.

Recognising the value of personal growth, Josie has found herself increasingly engaged with IFA – attending events such as golf days, conferences, and meetings allows her to expand her professional network and stay updated on the latest developments in her field.

“It’s rewarding to see her confidence grow as she enjoys socialising and participating in IFA activities and events,” Robert adds.

Furthermore, Josie is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Business Studies to enhance her knowledge and skills, and learning CAD to broaden her expertise in plan and product detailing.

Beyond her professional pursuits, Josie embraces spending time with loved ones. Originally from Albury but having lived most of her life in Sydney, she cherishes visits to her family in Orange and enjoys socialising with friends.

When asked about her source of inspiration, Josie proudly acknowledges her father as her mentor.

He instilled in her the values of excellence and attention to detail, always encouraging her to “measure twice, cut once.” Following in his footsteps, Josie aspires to chart her father’s success as an IFA member and a member of the NSW committee.

As Josie continues to navigate the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, she looks forward to the evolving landscape of Dynamic Closures. The company’s commitment to continuous improvement and teamwork resonates with her own values, and she is excited to contribute to the creation of a stronger, more successful team.

“I take a lot of pride in my work and I believe my passion comes from that. I ensure that each job I do is to the best of my ability.”

As the years unfold, we eagerly anticipate the future accomplishments of this IFA Rising Star in the sector.
