Bernie Olanda (Executive Chairman)

Bernie brings more than 50 years of experience to his role, with a background in large-scale commercial/industrial project management. Bernie has been responsible for delivering projects for some of Melbourne’s most iconic landmarks. His passion and enthusiasm, along with his core values and vast experience, make Bernie an ideal mentor for all the staff who are part of the MPE team.


Francis Mezzatesta (General Manager)

Francis has been an integral part of the MPE team for the past seven years and brings a wealth of experience in project and people management. He is committed to delivering projects on time and on budget and demands the highest standards from everyone around him. In his time at MPE, Francis has implemented multiple new efficiencies and helped improve the level of professionalism across the whole company.


Luke Olanda (Business Development Manager)

As one of Bernie’s three sons, (and the first to join the business), Luke started his career with an electrical apprenticeship in 1998. Luke has a desire for new and innovative technology, a passion he is proud to bring to MPE.

Luke’s hard work was rewarded when he became a recipient of the RMIT Apprentice of the Year Award in 2001 and was also a Middy’s Education Scholarship winner in 2011. It’s his obvious attention to detail that makes Luke a valuable member of our MPE family.


Simon Olanda (Service Manager)

Since starting with MPE as an electrical apprentice 2005, MPE recognised a certain flair Simon has with customers, a skill that has helped MPE in building a service division that is second to none. Simon’s commitment to customer service has grown the customer base to over 150+ buildings in the Melbourne metropolitan area where Simon and his team deliver the highest quality service and expertise that MPE's clients rely on.

MPE and Simon understand the importance of “up-time” and ensure that all is done to communicate and maximise this to any of their customers.


Peter Olanda (Professional Services Manager)

Peter’s career was launched with an apprenticeship with one of Australia’s largest and premier contracting companies, Downer EDI. This helped form the foundation for “MPE” to provide a solid knowledge of large-scale commercial and industrial projects. Complemented by Bernie’s history, Peter offers large scale projects with the level of professionalism required, along with a personalised customer experience that only a true service business can offer.  

To further enhance his credentials, Peter has also been fortunate in being a recipient of a Middy’s Education Scholarship win in 2012. His hands-on technical skills are enhanced with a Diploma in Project Management – knowledge that adds genuine value to every project MPE works on.


Gareth Flynn (Mechanical and HVAC Manager)

Gareth has been a valued member of the MPE family for the last 2 years. After successfully running his own company, Flynn Air for many years, he decided to join forces with MPE, and so MPE Mechanical was born. Gareth is hard working and dedicated and his passion for the HVAC industry is second to none. He now manages a team of equally enthusiastic team members servicing buildings and homes across all of Melbourne.


Melissa Magnay (Office Manager)

Mel has been MPEs office manager for the last 12 months and in that short time has made multiple improvements that have helped the company across the board. She currently manages the entire administration department whilst also scheduling all work for the service team. Mel brings a strong work ethic and knowledge of all aspects of accounts and administration and is the first point of call for all clients and staff members.
