He sold the lion's share of Walker Corp, twice. The first time in the late 1990s and then again in 2006 before the global financial crisis.
More recently, he’s been at the helm of major projects including the $3 billion Collins Square development, a six tower commercial office, retail, and entertainment precinct, in Melbourne’s western CBD.
And the $3.2 billion redevelopment of Parramatta Square city centre, previously named as “one of the largest commercial developments in the country”.

Kokomo is a Fiji based resort he’s poured more than $110 million into after snapping up the 57-hectare island of Yaukuve, south of Suva, in 2017, one of his most recent passion projects.
“We want to keep going from strength to strength and continue to raise the bar and deliver large scale place-making projects.”
