From Welfare To Billionaire: Evan Thornley on Running A $14.2B Empire Property Podcast

    • Investing

Evan Thornley is a tech and social entrepreneur who has been investing in real estate in Australia and the US for over 30 years. His name is synonymous with success, having founded and led the first Australian high-tech company to achieve a NASDAQ listing— and a market value of $14.2 billion. Today his title is Executive Chair at LongView, however you may also recognise his name from companies such as LookSmart, Better Place, and McKinsey, or as the co-founder of the GoodStart Consortium. 
In this episode Thornley shares his roots that allowed him to grow into the benevolent leader he is, starting with his humble childhood. We learn how he leapfrogged from one place to another, gaining new skills and unearthing new talents along the way. Taking listeners on a journey from Gosford to Melbourne and Kuala Lumpur to New York and beyond, Thornley reveals the steps he took— and is still taking— to revolutionise the Australian property market, one landlord and one renter at a time.
