The Urban Developer welcomes Bert Dennis OAM, founding chairman of Dennis Family Corporation, along with executive chairman Grant Dennis, to our webinar series.
During the past sixty years, the Dennis Family corporation has evolved into one of Australia’s largest private landowners, controlling development and home building arms that make up the bulk of a business whose annual revenue puts it within reach of some of Australia’s top-listed ASX200 companies.
Family patriarch Bert’s astute vision and drive have led the company in developing thousands of hectares of land into residential communities and building tens of thousands of homes.
Today, as a 100 per cent family-owned business, the Dennis Family continues to operate across three sectors of the property industry—residential land development, housing construction and commercial development.
Bert holds the position of founding chairman and has been joined in the business by his four children and grandchildren, with his second child Grant heading up the company as executive chairman.
Bert received a medal of the Order of Australia in 2005 for services to the housing industry, supporting charities and contributing to urban planning debate.
