I had the pleasure of working with Matthew for 5 years whilst at Australand. During this period,I worked closely with Matthew and the senior executive team in my role as Acquisitions Manager, responsible for acquiring land for development by the NSW Residential Land and Housing Division. With Matthew’s support,guidance and leadership we were successful in securing numerous projects,including various Joint Venture partnerships with Government. Matthew always made himself available to assist and provide advice when required. He was inspirational in managing people and excelled in establishing key business relationships. As an individual I have always found Matthew to be professional, courteous and friendly. He deserves the opportunity to clear his name bring his family back home.
