The interesting names keep coming for the CRW (Crikey Revised Wealth)
List, but we don’t buy the argument that Slim Dusty’s cash entry
concerts got him up to $110 million or the line put forward by an ABC
journalist that Paul Keating is worth $300 million. As if. We’ve
packaged up all the new names we’ve uncovered so far on the site here but apologies for sledging BRW
yesterday over Great Southern Plantations CEO John Young as they did
have him down with $180 million. Here are today’s five new names:
to run Australia’s leading fresh produce company and is also a major
shareholder in Sydney’s markets by virtue of large operations he has
there. Also owns many race horses and has reached the pinnacle of the
industry by sitting on the Sydney Turf Club board.
Bishop family: Brisbane-based owners of the Hardy Bros and Wallace Bishop jewellers, plus owns property in spades and plenty of other assets.
Adelaide-based owners of Fairmont Homes, Pickard Development Group,
Adelaide City Soccer Club, Land SA, Lifestyle SA, Realty SA and The
Pickard Foundation, which has donated many millions to the Royal
Adelaide Hospital and other charities.
Heck family: Own
or lease about 700 hectares of caneland between Brisbane and the Gold
Coast (about 10% of the annual cane crush). It owns the only private mill
in Queensland, plus the Windaroo Golf Club. The real money will
eventually come from residential development and this family has
already started down this path in the Beenleigh area.
John Potter: Ex CEO of Villa World Ltd who is still a director
and the largest shareholder with a $41 million stake. Also has
significant private real estate development works underway on the Gold
Coast and owns a triple block on Hedges Avenue and large amounts of
industrial land towards Ipswich and Yatala.
