The Property Council of Australia has inducted property giants John Gandel, Stanley Perron and Sir John Pidgeon into the Australian Property Hall of Fame.
Established in 2012, the Australian Property Hall of Fame honors individuals who have displayed sustained leadership, made a major pioneering contribution and left an outstanding legacy to the property industry and Australian community.
“Through their energy, imagination, drive and determination, these three extraordinary people have shaped Australia’s urban landscape,” said Property Council National President, Darren Steinberg
“All three inductees are as renowned for their generosity and philanthropy as they are for their business acumen, and I am delighted that we can acknowledge their outstanding contributions to Australian society.”
John Gandel has been Chairman of the Gandel Group of Companies since 1983, which managed approximately $8.5 billion of Australia’s best retail assets until the sale of the business in 2006.
“Among John’s many achievements, he has successfully managed and developed Chadstone into Australia’s largest and most productive shopping mall which is now valued at over $3 billion,” said Mr Steinberg.
Stanley Perron is Owner and Chairman of the Perron Group of Companies, which has a property portfolio valued at over $3 billion comprising shopping centres, office buildings and commercial and industrial properties.
“Stan Perron is a true Western Australian icon who continues to explore new business frontiers while giving back to the community,” said Mr Steinberg.
Sir John Pidgeon is Managing Director of FA Pidgeon & Son Pty Ltd, one of Australia’s largest privately-owned building and development companies.
“Sir John’s hard work and commitment has transformed the skylines of Brisbane and the Gold Coast and made the Pidgeon name synonymous with a quality building in Queensland,” said Mr Steinberg.
The induction ceremony took place on Saturday 18 May as part of the 2013 Innovation and Excellence Awards.
