Luke Wren, an established business owner, mentor, and tradesperson who is proud to represent regional Queensland, was awarded the Department of Energy and Public Works Tradesperson of the Year Award at the 2021 Plumbing and Gas Industry Awards, held on Friday 12 November at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

As the owner of Wren Plumbing and with a plumbing career that spans more than 20 years, Luke is a passionate and dedicated industry and community leader.

During Luke’s career he has successfully executed a relocation of his business from Emerald to Yeppoon, expanded Wren Plumbing’s service offering, and fostered a positive working environment that is committed to furthering the careers of its employees, all whilst still getting his hands dirty and working alongside his staff whenever possible. Throughout all his plumbing and business success, Luke’s number one priority has always remained family, and within his business he is focussed on creating a safe and happy work environment for all staff, by promoting a healthy and balanced life where family time is a priority.
