Congratulations to Sarina Russo named in QLDs top 60 business power players

By Sarina Russo Editorial Team

The Courier Mail recently released a list on Queensland’s top 60 business power players and our very own Managing Director and Founder, Sarina Russo, has rounded out the list!


“Business is the backbone of our state. It’s what keeps Queenslanders in jobs, creates opportunities for expansion and development and builds a strong economy”, the article says.


Joining Sarina are fellow business power players; the Wagner Family of the Wagner Corporation, Steve Johnson – CEO of Suncorp, Jayne Hrdlicka – CEO of Virgin Australia and Graham Turner – CEO and Co-founder of Flight Centre.


The article describes Sarina as “if you want to know where the centre of power is in any room, look for Sarina Russo, she’ll be nearby.


“Whether it’s with world leaders, corporate titans or local pollies, Russo knows how to network and get ahead in business.


‘See you at the top!’ has become her most popular catchcry but very few could scale the same heights as Brisbane’s self-titled jobs queen.


“She started her typing school more than 40 years ago with just $2600 to her name and is now one of the richest women in the state with an estimated fortune of $270m or so.


“Her Sarina Russo Group is one of Australia’s largest education, training and employment providers.


“In 1994, she became the first woman to privately own a Brisbane CBD high-rise building and through savvy deals has continued to grow her property portfolio”.
