As the General Manager of Development at Pelican Waters, Hamish is responsible for delivering the successful roll out of developed land across Pelican Waters and positioning the future Pelican Waters Town Centre as a landmark development on the Sunshine Coast . Hamish brings over 15 years experience in all areas of the development industry and is well placed to continue the success of Pelican Waters. He brings a deep understanding of both local and national markets and fostering relationships with all parts of the property industry.
He commenced work with the Pelican Waters Development team in December 2008 with the task of managing the master planning and development process for the Southern Lakes. Hamish led the Pelican Waters Development team though the master planning process resulting in an approval for the new community heart within the last parcel of land in the Pelican Waters estate. The final 115ha of land will be home to around 4500 residents who will live in and around an integrated mixed use town centre with a marina, canals, lakes, parks and a wide range of both low and high density product. This is an exciting role, a ground breaking project for the Sunshine Coast and a fantastic career opportunity. This type of development has never been done on the Sunshine Coast and is one of very few across regional Australia.
Hamish began his career in engineering consultancy in Brisbane before moving into Project Management. He lived and worked in the United Kingdom for 4 years using it as a base to travel through the European continent and Africa. Working on a range of projects from the commercial, retail and residential sectors, Hamish was exposed to all parts of the design and construction industry. Hamish has held previous management roles at national development companies over the past decade including Australand, where he managed the delivery of over 1000 residential lots across South East Queensland, and Walker Corporation where he managed industrial and commercial developments.
The move to Caloundra and to the Henzell Group in 2008 has resulted in a great work-life balance for Hamish. ‘My family and I are living the coastal life dream, close to the beach and enjoying the benefits this brings - although I would like to do more surfing and fishing!’. He is honoured to be in his current position and to be a part of decision making that will continue the successful brand that is Pelican Waters. Whilst his focus is the property industry outside of work Hamish is an avid sports and music follower.
