One of Western Australia’s most enduring and successful business figures, Tony Trevisan has played a key role in the acquisition and development of quality residential, retail and commercial property in WA, Queensland and Victoria over a 35-year period.
In the early 1980s, Tony introduced Target supermarket and discount department stores to WA and was instrumental in the development of major shopping centres in areas including Kelmscott, Mount Hawthorn, Balga and Girrawheen. Other significant developments included the now-named Midland Gate Shopping Centre in WA, the redevelopment of the Hoffnung site in the Brisbane CBD and a substantial industrial project in Victoria.
In 1990, the Transcontinental Group acquired the Roy Weston Real Estate Group. Before divesting the Group in 2005, Tony was responsible for growing it into WA’s largest real estate company, with more than 60 offices around the State.
Tony successfully navigated all businesses under his management through both the 1987 stock market crash and the global financial crisis of 2007-2008.
The Transcontinental Group he founded in 1980 has established and managed more than 20 public companies listed on stock exchanges around the world – together with a variety of private companies – which are involved in the oil and gas and mining sectors, together with property development and investment.
As Chairman of TRG Properties, the property division of the Transcontinental Group, Tony has been the driving force behind the successful development of significant residential and commercial projects in WA and Victoria.
Simon Trevisan has held the role of Managing Director of TRG Properties since the company’s inception in 2001, and has overseen its growth into a substantial property developer and investor with a strong track record of more than 25 successfully-completed diverse real estate projects.
Simon’s leadership of TRG Properties has seen him involved in all aspects of the business – from identifying opportunities through to the successful completion of englobo land subdivisions, canal and built-form estates, high and medium density residential developments and commercial offices.
Simon is a Director of real estate trust manager TransLinQ Properties Pty Ltd, the Port Coogee No 790 Trust and the Perry Lakes No 229 Trust. He is also Managing Director of TRG Properties parent company, the Transcontinental Group, a private investment group which has developed, financed and managed businesses in a variety of industries around the world. He has significant experience in corporate finance, in Australia and globally, and in executive management of large private and listed public businesses.
Outside the property sector, Simon’s experience includes the establishment and listing on the London Stock Exchange’s AIM of Mediterranean Oil & Gas Plc, and roles as the executive chairman of ASX-listed gold explorer Aurex Consolidated Ltd and a founding director of ASX-listed Regalpoint Resources Ltd and Ausgold Ltd. He is also a director of medical device company AAT Research Ltd.
Simon holds Bachelor of Economics and Bachelor of Law degrees from the University of Western Australia, and a Masters of Business and Technology from the University of New South Wales. Before becoming a full-time executive with the Transcontinental Group, he practiced as a solicitor with a prominent commercial law firm in the corporate, property and natural resources divisions, and was admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of Western Australia and the High Court of Australia. Simon is also on the board of St George’s College Foundation.
