Meet Our Team

Our greatest asset

At Whartons, we pride ourselves on working closely with our handpicked team who have been chosen for their strengths and skills. Our vision is not only to supply quality tradespeople but also to assist and grow our staff in all areas of life itself.

Our team is backed by a strong skilled workforce, and we understand that people are the most valued asset of any great company. We believe in working hard and playing hard, and we incorporate that into our culture. As a father to six, our Director understands the importance of family and has made it a significant factor of our company culture.

Leon Obschonka


Leon completed his Fitter’s Apprenticeship in Kalgoorlie and carries strong local knowledge as well as being multi-skilled. These days Leon is office-based, but guaranteed to always be the first to put his hand up to assist on site when needed. 

With a love for the Goldfields and being a family man, Leon loves to see people successful in all aspects.
