The final Melbourne event of the 2015 IACC Mentoring Program will feature John Higgins, Chairman of our sponsors, Higgins Coatings. With an amazing and varied career to date, John will share with us some of the lessons he learned and the people he met on the way to the BRW Rich List.


John Higgins began working at Higgins Coatings in 1978 after studying Economics at La Trobe University. John moved through all aspects of the family business to the stage where he was appointed Managing Director for 10 years, taking over from the founder Gerry Higgins (Founding President of the IACC). In 1997, John moved on to the role of Chairman to develop and grow the broad range of Higgins family ventures.

In 1990 he and Allan Myers made an investment in Polish breweries. Polish beer consumption doubled over the next 10 years and in 1998, Heineken bought a controlling stake in the breweries. John oversees a number of other investments internationally, some of which are detailed in his profile.
