How Theo Maras Transformed The City Of Adelaide
Welcome the month of February a new start to a New Year, when we catch up with Theo Maras.
Theo Maras is the founder and Chairman of Maras Group, formed (in July 2006) following a separation from the Mancorp Group, a very well-known and respected property investment and development group which commenced business in 1980. Theo, who represented one half of Mancorp, has been instrumental in shaping development in South Australia since the early 1980’s.
Theo’s expertise is exceptionally broad and varied. His main skills rest in design and construction but he is also highly accomplished in issues relating to planning, leasing and management. He has been involved in almost all developments undertaken over the last four decades or so, both for Mancorp and Maras Group.
Importantly, Theo has successfully managed to entice and secure some big name operators, and others, previously not seen in the South Australian market place. No longer involved in the day-to-day operations of the business, today, Theo chairs Maras Group’s Board and sits on the Maras Group Advisory Board.
Theo is a genuine leader in the South Australian property market and community at large, and this is further supported by his extensive participation and involvement in the following: Chair, Design Review Panel, Central Market Arcade Redevelopment, City of Adelaide Member, Eighty-Eight O’Connell Development Project Reference Group, City of Adelaide Founding Member, The Foundation for Hellenic Studies .
In addition, and over many years, Theo has also served on a number of other Boards and Committees, just to name a few: Past Chairperson, The Foundation Australian Centre for Child Protection Past Chairperson, Heritage Foundation, The University of Adelaide Past Chairperson, Rundle Mall Management Authority .
Theo has received numerous honours, awards and accolades over many years including, Member of the Order of Australia (AM). Theo continues to make a hefty contribution to the community at large and his involvement in the organisations and positions held, as listed above, is testament to his desire to give back to the community.
Yours in success,
