Consultant Profile
 
Anthony
 
In a former life Anthony was an accountant and after travelling oversees in the mid 90's Anthony worked as an IT Project Manager for various companies.  During this time Anthony has also taken a keen interest in real estate and has completed the following developments:
  • In 1997 a block of 6 units in Cronulla.  This was a difficult development that required us to fight Sutherland Shire Council in the Land & Environment Court and win.  This was sold with DA approval.
  • In 1999 Anthony developed a backpacker's hostel with commercial letting underneath at Cronulla.  This was another unique development as no one at the time had built a backpacker's in the Sutherland Shire.  This meant the process was long and council needed a lot of information about the backpackers business which we provided.  It also involved Anthony writing a detailed business plan for the bank to arrange finance which was successful.
  • In 2002, Anthony purchased the property next to the backpackers and went back to council to double the size of the hostel.  This was successful.
  • In March 2002, Anthony and his wife Laureen, purchased Jannali Kinder Care as an existing business and freehold.  Laureen runs the business and has grown the business into a very successful one.  We have received 100% from the NCAC (Federal governing body) three times which is an unbelievable feat.
  • Due to the success of Jannali Kinder Care Anthony decided to develop another centre in the same street.  This once again pushed the boundaries of the Sutherland Shire Council and Anthony once again fought them in the Land & Environment Court.  In February 2006, Anthony was successful and opened the centre in January 2007. DOCS made only one visit to the centre and approved it after that one visit.  This is unheard of in the childcare industry. The centre is now running at 100% occupancy after 3 months of trading.
Since September 2006 Anthony has focused solely on the Childcare industry. Anthony has helped a number of clients to purchase childcare centres and also upgrade their current centres.
