Garry Pesochinsky’s journey through life has had many twists and turns. He began his professional career working in the IT industry, starting at an IT helpdesk position and working his way up over eleven years to an IT Team Leader at National Australia Bank.
Garry’s interest in Property Development started in his personal life. His father flipped properties for 25 years, and after having his second child, Garry decided to try something similar.
His first property development was an older home located on a 700 square metre block of land in Brighton East, which he subdivided, built another home, and resold the original while he moved into the new property. While he encountered challenges along the way, Garry was encouraged by his success and continued to develop properties.
At the age of 27, while working for NAB, and undertaking these Developments, Garry decided to start a new business with his younger brother and study to obtain his Certificate IV in Financial Services. He juggled all of this for three years.
After three years, Garry decided to quit his safe NAB job and follow his passion and grow his business. Over the next decade, Garry and his brother grew their business from two employees into a medium size business with over eighty employees in three offices in Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane.
In 2015, Garry added another branch to his business: Property Developments. In the period from 2015-2018 under his leadership, the Developments branch managed 14 projects, with 100 clients and over $20 million in funds under management.
In early 2018, Garry decided to focus his attention on Property Developments and purchased the subsidiary companies which managed the Property Developments of his business and formed Lion Property Group with his new business partners.
At Lion Property Group, Garry works as Head of Developments where he utilizes his skills in project management, site evaluation, finance, and capital raising to keep sixteen active projects on schedule.

Graduating with a bachelor’s degree and a scholarship in civil engineering in Beijing, China, Frank Li started his professional career in 2006. The first project he was involved in was the main stadium (Bird’s Nest) of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
In late 2007, Frank decided to explore the world more and put his feet on the road. He joined Intrepid Travel, a Melbourne-headquartered international tourism company, as a group leader in Asia. He explored more than 10 countries and regions as he was promoted 5 times up the Intrepid hierarchy. In 2012, Frank was the Purchasing Director for greater China of PEAK Adventure Group (formed from Intrepid). He established his purchasing team and the supplier evaluation and evaluation system to control the quality of services that PEAK purchases. Ultimately, his work at Intrepid Travel and PEAK improved the level of travellers’ experiences in the greater China area.
In 2013 Frank was offered a scholarship for a MBA program by HULT International Business School in Boston, USA. Frank decided to go with his gut instincts and stepped into the business world.
During his course, three different tourism companies offered Frank Director-level positions. However, Frank refused them all because he wanted to achieve more in the business world with his transferable professional capabilities. A Melbourne based head-hunter approached Frank with a real estate job offer from McGrath, a public company, located in Australia.
After working at McGrath for almost 3 years, Frank gained a deeper understanding and a wider network within the Australian real estate, property development, and estate fund raising industries. In 2018, Frank’s aspirational spirit drove him to evolve into the upper tier in the real estate industry and brought him to Lion Property Group whose vision is also to positively influence the world.
