Founder and Managing Director
Born and raised in Canberra, proud local Nick is passionate about the leading role Geocon is playing in shaping the promising future of our national capital.
The driving force behind Geocon and Iconic Hotels, Nick leads the executive management team and provides all-important strategic direction across the groups. His focus is set firmly on expanding the company’s interests in hotels, commercial acquisitions and development – creating an increasingly progressive and vibrant Canberra in the process.
After building a successful career in engineering, project management and leadership in the construction sector, Nick soon recognised the need for a player in the residential housing market that would deliver an exceptional product at an affordable price. Focusing on cost, inclusions, sustainability, customer service, execution, amenities and lifestyle has allowed him to more than achieve his ambitious goals.
All because he saw the potential for his hometown to become a word class hub with the exciting developments to match. In 2006, Nick launched his own business and in 2007 Geocon was born with just six employees and a turnover of $5 million in its first year. Since then, the company has grown to more than 250 staff, has an annual turnover of $250-300 million and engages up to 2000 workers at a time.
While Geocon is now one of Canberra’s most successful property developers, Nick shows no signs of slowing down. Ever industrious, he has several innovative new projects in the pipeline and his business is expanding rapidly with new in-house sales, communications, legal and marketing teams.
