SVSR - Kylie Ridding

Kylie Ridding

Managing Director

As SVSR Managing Director, Kylie Ridding oversees company direction and our continual commitment to and delivery of industry-leading sewer vent solutions.

Kylie’s father, Len Reynolds, founded the business more than two decades ago. After studying social work, Kylie followed in her father’s entrepreneurial footsteps, establishing a business offering health related services within social work.

When Len retired in 2011, Kylie took the reins of the family business with her brothers.

“Dad always wanted a legacy; this keeps his legacy now that he has passed away. I operate from a position of stewardship. I have a responsibility to protect and a mandate to take the business in a new direction and ensure we remain a leader in the industry.”

As SVSR General Manager, Tony Jankovic oversees our day-to-day operations, including marketing and project management for our sewer vent installation, Sydney Water and regional projects. He joined SVSR in mid 2021, with a view to building on our niche capability in sewer vent solutions – and moving SVSR in exciting new directions.

“SVSR is smaller than some companies I’ve worked for, but I see huge potential for growth.

I’m looking to build on our significant expertise in sewer vent shaft fabrication and installation and our crane hire to provide a wider range of services from our expert team.”

Patricia Dakanalis

Administration Manager

Patricia Dakanalis joined SVSR in 2013, and she is the go-to for all of our administration – including payroll, accounts receivable, accounts payable, bookkeeping, HR and recruitment.

Patricia has an overview of the whole business. She is efficient and methodical and has an ability to pick up details that others don’t. Patricia calls it intuition but it’s also a very high attention to detail.

“Because I’ve been here for so long, I feel that I am part of the company. If I don’t feel like I have a vested interest I can’t do my job… I have to feel connected. It gives me pride to know that I’ve done my job well. I like to see everything running smoothly and know that I’ve played a part in that.”

Arthur came to SVSR with a long history in the civil construction sector, initially starting as a sales representative in a sand quarry, moving up to sales manager and then working across several major quarries.
