The Buildcorp Group
Josephine Sukkar AM is a professional company director who works across a range of industries, including property, construction, finance, sport, the arts, medical research and social services.
A former scientist and teacher, she established Buildcorp with her husband 27 years ago, which employs over 300 staff and has revenue of $500 million.
Josephine serves on a number of private, public, government and not-for-profit boards, including Growthpoint Properties Australia, Parramatta Park Trust, Opera Australia, Centenary Institute of Medical Research, Melbourne University Infrastructure Committee and the Australian Rugby Foundation. She is President of Australian Women’s Rugby and through Buildcorp has been a major sponsor of rugby in Australia for nearly 30 years.
She has previously served as a director of The Trust Company, and was Co-President of the YWCA NSW.
As an active member of Chief Executive Women (CEW), the Diversity Committee of the Property Council of Australia, and her role with the Australian Rugby Union, Josephine champions the equal participation of women in business, sport and the community. As a mother of a son and a daughter, and as a result of her time with the YWCA NSW, her passion and advocacy for the equal participation of women across the community has been heightened.
She was recently recognised for her services to the community, the arts and sports in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list.
