AVID Property Group (AVID) is pleased to announce the appointment of Jason Brettell to the role of General Manager Victoria.
Mr Brettell joins AVID’s team after more than 20 years in the property development industry. In his new role, Mr Brettell will head the development and delivery of AVID’s Victorian residential communities, including the $210 million masterplanned Carolina community in Deanside.
“I am delighted to bring my strong business acumen to this highly reputable company which shares so many of the values and approaches I align with,” Mr Brettell said.
“Melbourne – and Victoria more broadly – are growing at a fast pace with the demand for land and homes naturally increasing, so the opportunity to join a company that wants to strategically expand in support of this demand is an exciting challenge that I’m thrilled to take on.
“I look forward to working closely with the development team on how we can best deliver vibrant communities that bring people together,” Mr Brettell said.
AVID Property Group’s Chief Executive Officer Cameron Holt said the appointment represents an exciting new chapter for its Victorian operations.
“We’re pleased to have Jason as a part of our executive leadership, bringing with him a passion for property development and a unique array of experiences that will help to bolster our market position in the State,” Mr Holt said.
Mr Brettell is not unfamiliar with AVID brands as he also worked for Villa World in 2014, a company AVID later acquired as its residential building arm in 2019, now operating as Villaworld Homes by AVID Property Group.
He has also worked with Frasers Property and the Victorian State Government’s agency, Development Victoria, among other publicly listed and private companies.
