From a single car-yard to an empire worth millions
GYMPIE'S POWER 30: Carl Green, Number 30.
WORTH more than $30m a year, Carl Green started from humble beginnings.
He was born in Gympie in 1965 and raised on farms in the Gympie area.
From the age of 18 he started selling cars for Gympie Carworld.
It was soon after this he met his wife Judy (also born in Gympie) and they had two children.
Soon after, the couple built a new child care centre at Jones Hill and then bought five acres on the northside of Gympie.
After building a number of commercial properties on the site, Mr Green started a motor vehicle retail yard in November of 1997.
He now has five Green RV Dealerships, worth more than $30m a year, which retail, repair and service caravans and motor homes.
In addition to Gympie he has dealerships in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Windsor and Melbourne.
In the near future Mr Green has plans to develop a 150-lot residential subdivision on Ranson Rd and is also in the process of getting approvals for a 20-acre industrial complex on Langton Rd.
In addition to all of his business dealings, Mr Green served as a Gympie Apexian for 15 years and was involved in running the Gympie Music Muster for several of those years.
