In 1994 Ross Whiteman introduced Ray White to the Western Australian real estate market.
Ross Whiteman together with his late wife Ann created what quickly became a powerful family business at Dianella and then Maylands. The business prospered. So much so, that it became inevitable for their sons Mark and David to join, who quickly emerged as capable real estate practitioners themselves.
For the Ray White family, a business now spanning four generations, this was perfect. What better, with Ray White keenness to expand into Western Australia, than have Ross Whiteman lead this expansion. A perfect combination of Western Australian values with the strength and support from Australasia’s biggest group. By 1994, Ray White’s growth in Western Australia was in fast-track.
Now in 2020, Mark Whiteman has been CEO of Ray White Western Australia for 18 years and has been working closely with Dan White the managing director of the Ray White Network.
On top of this, Ross’s son David continues to drive one of the most progressive businesses in the country, while supporting the Western Australian franchise family.
Dan says, “I love the way Mark is so committed to his people and to his community. He’s Western Australian to the core, but understands the depth of resources that the Ray White Group has created, which are bringing new sophistication and professionalism to all Ray White offices across five continents.”
“It needs a group to be as large as Ray White to have the capacity to employ the specialist skillsets that are creating such new processes for our businesses.”
“Our aim is to future proof our businesses. We are proud that Mark embraces all of our ambitions.”
“Most companies struggle to lead past the second generation. The White family (now well into the fourth generation) provides both a fantastic example as well as an enormous advantage to all in our Western Australian family”, Mark said.
“Two families – twice the commitment!”
