Peter Merrigan, founder and Director, featured in this winter's issue of @marcellinfoundation Newsletter as an honourable past student.
In the issue, Peter discusses starting Millar | Merrigan (1966) in his early twenties with his good friend Paul Millar and how he has come to make a life and successful business based on the principle of giving back generously and supporting those around you.
As the current Managing Director and son of Peter, Simon Merrigan reflects on the impact that Peter's work style had on him from an early age.
Peter also comically reflects on the job interview 40 years ago with Mick Hales (now a Director) where he asked Mick only three questions "Are you Catholic? Do you barrack for Carlton Football Club? and Are you good at trigonometry?"... Mick answered truthfully to two of the three questions, and after being awarded the job, went home to learn trigonometry.
The core principles of generosity still remain deeply ingrained in the culture of Millar Merrigan. Staff are still offered opportunities to get ahead, and word of mouth remains the key communication method for new leads.
