Professionally Managed Home Services
The HomeFront Story
Graduating Royal Military College Duntroon six months apart, their shared and individual military adventures have taken them around the world; from Afghanistan, to North and East Africa, East Timor, Israel, South Sudan, Europe and the Gulf States. Serving together in various tactical command appointments as Platoon and Company Commanders, and Headquarters appointments as Operation Officers, the two formed a private company Ballantyne Moss in 2011 to pursue their shared post-deployment vision.
This vision was to take the cutting-edge command and control technology and networked logistics architecture from the most advanced modern military operations in the world, and use it to change the way services are delivered to Australians back on the home front.
From this vision, HomeFront Australia was born in 2016.
Developing original software for an instant booking platform that tied hundreds of vetted contractors into HomeFront’s operating environment, HomeFront launched in Brisbane with great success, expanding the platform to the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Sydney by early 2018.
HomeFront’s technology, which was built by the company with former Defence Science and Technology Organisation software developer Christopher Martin, allowed HomeFront to compete for and gain numerous commercial contracts, leading to the creation of FrontLine in early 2020.
A few of FrontLine’s current contracts
Rounding out the senior team with David as the Chief Executive of HomeFront and Chris as Chief Executive of Frontline, Jonathan Brown as the Chief Information Officer, and Gordon Henderson the National Operations Manager, HomeFront is now conducting services all over Australia on a daily basis through their Sydney and Brisbane-based staff, and hundreds of specialist contractors who have embraced the efficiency, transparency and certainty our system provides to take their service delivery to the next level.
While Department of Veterans’ Affairs Household Services clients comprise a small part of HomeFront’s business, it is by far the most important personally to its founders and staff, almost all of of whom are part of the Defence and Veterans Community. HomeFront sees their commitment to this community as being the very essence of their vision, developed on a Kandahar airfield 10 years ago.
HomeFront also supports veteran charities, such as our principal charitable partners Wounded Heroes Australia, actively employs veterans and reservists, and is active in the Defence Community.
