Brian White is Chairman of Ray White Group
Brian White is the third generation leader of the Ray White Group. Soon after he earned his bachelor’s degree in economics in 1962, he commenced with the company in its commercial agency.

He completed his CBRE relationship in 2006. In later years, Ray White Commercial was re-established and has grown at a remakable pace while enjoying some landmark agency appoinments in recent years.
In 2001, Brian supported his son, Dan, in the creation of the Ray White Invest. At last, the Ray White Group was able, with its ASIC license, to offer securitized property products of the highest quality.
