Eric Purvis
Eric PurvisManaging Director
Eric is a graduate of the prestigious Company Directors Course run by the Australian Institute of Company Directors. Eric has a vast range of hands on business experience and has bought and sold many businesses during his business life, which started as a teenager. He has operated in the fields of transport, finance, real estate, service businesses and has had exposure to business in Asia.

Eric took control of the business trading as Kart World in 2006 and since that time he has successfully steered this business through the GFC with an increase in revenues and market share. He has been responsible for the consistent increases in revenues year after year. These increases have been on average 12.5% per annum for that period and this year Kart World is on track to increase revenues again by a similar percentage. Quite a remarkable achievement considering that karting/entertainment is a discretionary spend and the world has been through some tough economic times. Prior to taking Karting (Aust) Pty. Ltd.’s helm in 2006, Eric launched a series of highly successful business ventures and has sold out of them at a considerable profit. He can do the same for you and your business if that is what you want.
