Dean Hassall’s consultancy passes third anniversary

Dean Hassall’s consultancy passes third anniversary
January 18, 2013

Respected industry professional and long standing Venue Management Association (Asia and Pacific) Ltd and Venue Management School committee member Dean Hassall has just celebrated the third anniversary of his successful Dean Hassall Consulting Pty Ltd (DHC) with a number of industry contracts with organisations.

These have included consultancy for:

• Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation;
• PPP specialists RIXSTEWART (specialist advisors for the Perth stadium project):
• Brisbane City Council;
• Logan City Council; and
• The City of Newcastle.

These established and new clients continue to add to a significant business portfolio and relationships Australia wide for DHC. Company founder and Director Dean Hassall was also recently elevated to Vice Chairman of the Brisbane Racing Club which oversees the operation of Queensland's two main thoroughbred racing facilities in Eagle Farm and Doomben racecourses as well as the Gallopers Sports Club.

Hassall explains "it has been a privilege to have been afforded an opportunity to work for such a variety of successful major organisations over the past three years and build ongoing relationships with leading edge industry professionals.

"(I) feel honoured to be afforded the opportunity to undertake work on their behalf.

"Being elected to Vice Chairman of the BRC after a short period of time as a Board Director was unexpected but a challenge I look forward to. With master planning for the BRC recently approved by Council, I hope to contribute to the ongoing development of Eagle Farm and Doomben racecourses as premier racing venues in Australia, and assist in moving racing forward in Queensland."
