I am pleased to provide testamentary support for Matthew Joyce based on my commercial and personal relationship with Matthew since 1997. I was Managing Director of the Australand Property Group and its predecessor organisations for a period of 17 years, until I retired in mid 2007 and now hold several private and public sector non-executive directorships.
Matthew was initially the General Manager of Australand’s Land Development operations in Perth and subsequently became Executive General Manager of the company’s Land Development Division in early 2000 and held that position until he resigned to pursue what he perceived to be a better career opportunity elsewhere.
I held a high opinion of Matthew as an executive and as a person to the extent that I acted as a referee for Matthew when the opportunity arose for him to take a senior role with Nakheel Corporation in Dubai. Matthew is a very competent executive with high personal standards and a very well developed sense of morality and ethics.
I shall always be happy to provide further testimony regarding Matthew if requested.
