Managing Director Hickinbotham Group
Building a house is meant to be one of the greatest tests of relationship management. After all, any form of construction takes many differently skilled individuals, all united under the talent of a good project manager.
For Hickinbotham – South Australia’s number one builder with a record 35,000 homes and more than 50 community estates – this relationship management is a reflection of its family heritage, and the basis of its incredible success.
The company was founded by Chairman Alan Hickinbotham, with his father Alan R. Hickinbotham in 1954. Even at those earliest of days, there were defined roles that played to individual strengths, with Alan holding the finance and sales responsibilities while his father organised the construction side of the business. Fundamental values were also established in the early days, which have carried through the ages.
Roughly 20 years ago, Alan’s son, Michael, left the Melbourne office of law firm Blake Dawson Waldron, where he was practicing corporate law, to join the family business. He is now the managing director of Hickinbotham; ensuring that the family lines continue.
At the heart of it all, he says, is “relationships built on trust”.
It is a rarity to see a company evolve and develop with the times, yet remain so fundamentally true to its beliefs. Perhaps it is the strength of family, but Hickinbotham is managing it perfectly.
You will enjoy another one on one with Micahle and host James Packham!
