Australia’s Industry Leading Stop-Leak Franchise Megasealed Announces Appointment of New CEO, Sean Johns

Johns will take the reins from Megasealed’s Founder & Managing Director, Jacques Courtin, who announced his plans to step back from the day-to-day running of the Franchise as he moves toward retirement. Australia’s industry leaders for innovative stop-leak solutions, Megasealed are proud to announce the appointment of Sean Johns as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer.

Johns’ is a seasoned franchise leader, with close to thirty years leadership experience, including his role leading a prominent travel group, overseeing 370 franchises with a combined turnover exceeding $750 million. His fifteen-year tenure as the founding partner of a technology-based performance management company serves as a testament to the expertise he brings to his new role as CEO of Megasealed.


Johns’ commenced his new position in August and will work closely with Courtin to manage the CEO transition, with Courtin remaining in an advisory capacity to the Franchise. Courtin spoke to his confidence in the new appointment to bolster the Megasealed leadership team.


Megasealed was first developed in 1988 after Courtin spent years working in the bathroom renovation industry and was disappointed by the ineffectiveness of industry sealants in dampening the main causes of leaking showers. Determined to break a culture of patchwork repairs and expensive bathroom renovations, Courtin set out to develop a cost-effective, time-efficient, and guaranteed solution for the repair of leaking showers and balconies.


Megasealed opened its first franchise store in 2014. With a constant emphasis on connecting specialised leak-repair services to local communities, Megasealed has gone from strength to strength and continued to expand its franchise network ever since.
