Gary Flowers OM

"Promote curiosity; always be asking “what if” and “why not?”..."

With over 25 years in strategy and leadership experience across three iconic organisations, Gary Flowers is sought out by boards to build brands, restructure, and turn around businesses. Harvard educated with a double degree, Gary started his career as a lawyer and was promoted soon after to the National Managing Partner of Sparke Helmore. In his tenure he grew the firm by over 600% from a NSW-based firm to having a national profile and claiming a top 10 ranking in Australia.

 

Following an international search for a new Managing Director, Gary joined the Australian Rugby Union (ARU) in 2004, leading significant structural reform and capturing record sponsorships in just three years. In 2006, Gary accepted a dual role as CEO for SANZAR.

 

With a talent for diversification, Gary joined the Mirvac Group in 2008 as Chief Operating Officer. Instrumental in turning around the Mirvac Group and securing its survival during the GFC, Mirvac achieved a Top 3 status and improved its share price in the most volatile of markets.
