The Interview: Rod Fehring, Frasers | Monumental leader of one of Australia’s forefront developers

With over 40 years’ experience in urban development, in both the private and public sectors, Rod Fehring has become a household name in property circles. As CEO of Frasers Property Australia (one of the country's largest residential developers), Rod is a key figure within the residential, retail, commercial, industrial and logistics property development projects of the firm across the nation. 

Having a passion for sustainable development and diversity, Rod was appointed Chair of the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) in June 2017, and joined the Property Male Champions of Change in 2015. He has also held prestigious roles as the Chair of Australia's Housing & Urban Research Institute (AHURI) from 2006 to 2015, and non-executive Director of Mission Australia Housing from 2011 to 2015. Before all of this however, Rod lead Lend Lease Communities across a successful 14-year career.

Rod Fehring recently made the difficult decision to step down as CEO of Frasers Property Australia and will be handing the reins over to chief financial officer Anthony Boyd in October. His association with the high profile developer won't be closed, but rather will evolve into a role as executive chairman of Frasers Property Australia in addition to retaining his role as chair of Frasers Property UK and Frasers Property Industrial.

Development Ready was extremely fortunate to sit down with this industry doyen and is pleased to be able to share some of Rod’s wisdom with a far-reaching audience; you can watch Rob Langton’s recent interview here
