Originally cutting his teeth in the banking and finance sector in Brisbane, Ken embarked on a career in the property industry on the Sunshine Coast over 30 years ago. In conjunction with his family, Ken established, owned and operated the highly successful Reed Property Group, ultimately employing over 100 staff and delivering more than $1.0 billion in property development projects across Queensland within the residential, commercial, retail and industrial sectors.
