Stepping down as Managing Director 10 years ago, Frank remains on the Board as a non-executive director. Frank is now current Chairman of his own company - Costa Property Group.
Bestowed with two honorary doctorates and numerous awards for his contributions to youth, community, sport, business leadership and entrepreneurship, the former President (now Patron) of Geelong Football Club works tirelessly to promote the development of the City of Geelong and surrounding community.
