My Story

I have over 40 years’ experience in property, construction and business investment in Australia and overseas. I attended Sydney Grammar School before graduating from the University of NSW in 1965 with an Honours Degree in Building. I am a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Building, and I have been an Adjunct Professor at the University of Canberra.

I was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in 2013 for my service to the construction industry and business in general in the ACT. I am the Executive Chairman of Hindmarsh, the company I established in 1979. It has an annual turnover approaching $1bn and operates in construction, property development, property investment, retirement village operations and investment syndication. The company has offices in Canberra, Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane. It has also been active in the China, Malaysia, Vietnam and the United States.
