My name is Derek Klau.
I’m the Managing Director – Owner Operator of Shikyna Detailing.
I started my business in 2008 after detailing a friend’s car I borrowed for a weekend away. He liked it and his friends liked it, so I figured, Why Not!! I’ve always had a passion for keeping my vehicles looking good from the time I had my first car in 1988, a Black 1982 Ford Laser S.
Before starting the business, I had spent 19 years in the Royal Australian Navy, and was looking to undertake a career change. I was lucky enough to be in a position to follow my passion, and was able to take days leave as required to do jobs. After detailing friends cars for 2 years, and gradually building up my client base, I took the plunge to go Full Time into business. I have been blessed to pursue what I enjoy ever since.
I’ve been through separation and divorce, but I’m enjoying my life again with an amazing Lady, and with 3 awesome kids, my life is definitely not boring. My 2 Boys are entering adulthood, and my Gorgeous Daughter still currently in School. I love having them with me on a regular basis. In my spare time, I enjoy running, keeping fit and spending time doing cool stuff with my Partner and Family. Don’t forget about the food!! I attend and serve at an amazing Church where I live, and have a great bunch of close friends I get to share life with each week through the ups and downs. Can’t forget, I’m also the proud slave of a Mini Sausage Dog. If you’ve ever had one, you’ll understand!!
I have a passion for Networking, building relationships, teaching, training, and helping those around me get the most out of life. I look forward to helping you in any way I can.
Define, Refine, and make the Shine Sublime!! Stay Glossy Peeps!!
