Maha Sinnathamy, visionary and Chairman of Greater Springfield
From humble beginnings in Malaysia, Maha Sinnathamby is known as the visionary behind the multi-award winning master planned city, Greater Springfield. In 2015 Newscorp declared Maha to be one of Queensland’s 50 Top Thinkers of all time. Maha is celebrated for challenging the community building paradigm by creating a sustainable, truly master-planned city.
He devoutly believes that education is the currency of the future and this is reflected in Greater Springfield where 46 per cent of the population of 30,000 is in formal learning. (The highest ratio in Australia) Considered a building block of the nation Greater Springfield continues to enjoy government support at all levels. While the development has so far attracted more than $11 billion in both public and private investment, Maha says that it is only when you chase success first that money will follow.
