Sales and Operations Manager - Tim Dippl

Welcome Tim, what do you enjoy most about your role at Aqua Cooler?
Aqua Cooler is a company experiencing tremendous growth at the moment.

I love that I’m a part of it and that I’m given the flexibility to go out and find further opportunities for the company, following its progression from “idea” to “execution”.

If you could travel to anywhere in the world right now where would you go?
I love the beach. So anywhere that has sun and sand, I’m happy with. I hear Vietnam is pretty good at this time of year.

What are your passions outside of work?
I love my cricket. There’s also something about being on my motorbike, 100kmh down the Pacific Hwy, wind forcing against you, no radio or other distractions; it’s just perfect.

If you could have a dinner party with any 3 people past or present who would they be and why?
My grandfather for one. He’s left us, but I think he’d have some great stories growing up in Europe in the 30s and 40s that I never had the chance to hear.

Beyond that, Barack Obama and John Howard. Again, just for the more “classified” stories.

How do you ensure you stay hydrated during a busy day at Aqua Cooler?
We’ve got a few Cascade Eco’s set up in the office. I prefer a smaller bottle and to go to the one downstairs.

Going downstairs to fill up my water bottle is a good excuse to get up and moving, even if for a few seconds.

What are you listening to/reading/binge watching at the moment?
My music tastes seem to be stuck in the late 90s or early 00s. So it alternates between Linkin Park, Bon Jovi, Jimmy Barnes and Nickelback. Yes – Nickelback.

What is one of your most memorable projects or exciting moments at Aqua Cooler thus far?
I’m currently looking into viability for more high volume pressure cooler options that would be perfect for airports, shopping centres and even stadiums and your high traffic events.  

About Aqua Cooler
Aqua Cooler was formed in 1994 as an amalgamation of three like-minded companies with histories dating back to the 1950’s. The first company, Blackmore and Singleman, was founded in the 1950’s by Jim Blackmore and focused on producing air conditioning and water chilling solutions for the train industry. The second, Sam Hort, was a small water cooler company purchased by Barry Blackmore in 1979. Sam Hort operated under this name for several years until Blackmore and Singleman relocated under the same roof and Aqua Cooler was formed. Over the lifetime of the company, Aqua Cooler has reinvented itself repeatedly. The core values and skill set remains mostly unchanged, but the end product and use-case continues to change and evolve alongside the world.
