Peter Fechter
Independent Non-Executive Director
Peter Fechter has deeply embedded entrepreneurial experiences of all aspects of the property space. After graduating as a civil engineer in 1968, he worked in South Africa as a site agent and tendering estimator, becoming CEO of a large private construction company in 1978. He formed his own business in 1980 which successfully engaged in general contracting and doing its own property developments for sale and selective own investment. After 20 years, Peter’s business was voluntarily closed, with the property portfolio being sold to an IPO company. When this company merged with Growthpoint Properties in 2003, he was appointed as non-executive director of Growthpoint, serving on the audit and risk committees and as chairman of the property investment committee, all resulting in regular and close involvement in a merger, acquisition and investment deals in South Africa and Australia.
