Peter has been a key contributor in the Australian property industry for over 25 years.
Originally a consulting civil engineer, my career has led me to my current position as the General Manager of Urbex, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the long standing national property and construction company, the BMD Group. Through previous roles I have been a major contributor to the Australian property sector for over 25 years with previous roles including Managing Director of Excel Development Group, and delivering master planned communities with Stockland, Delfin / Lendlease and Peter Kurts Properties.
As an industry expert in property development, I have extensive experience in strategic business development and leading professionals to drive high performing teams and profitability. Joining Urbex in 2017, I bring a track record of experience to support the business in delivering a national project portfolio in excess of $1.2 billion (end value) and securing future development opportunities.
I have been deeply involved with industry bodies including the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) having carried out the roles of State and National President and subsequently being awarded the honor of Life Member for both Chapters. I am passionate about the future of Australia as one of the founding members of the Future Housing Taskforce encompassing a group of key industry leaders to bring back the Great Australian Dream of home ownership, and a former board member for Brisbane Marketing.
