Biography of Lindsay Fox 
Lindsay Edward Fox AC (born 19 April 1937) is an Australian businessman. As of 2009, he was the 10th richest person in Australia, with a net worth of around 1.5 billion (USD|link=yes1.5 billion). He is best known as the founder and chairman of his family-owned trucking and logistics company, Linfox.

Early life
Lindsay Fox was brought up in Prahran, a suburb of Melbourne. He was educated at Melbourne High School, but was asked to leave during Year 10, at age 16, due to his lack of academic interest. He has been married for 50 years, with 6 children. In 1992 he was named 'Victorian Father of the Year'.

He also took ownership of Melbourne's Luna Park in late 2005. In 2006, he made an unsuccessful bid for the development of the neighboring 'Triangle Site' on St Kilda's foreshore. The property was subsequently destroyed by fire.

He has been involved with a number of high profile disputes with the Government relating to his property development activities. In the late 1990s he attempted to claim the public beach area in front of his holiday home as a private helipad for his helicopter and to build a high security compound for himself and his family. This development was rejected by the Victorian Planning Minister. However he has also been able to use his government contacts to gain favorable treatment by being granted permission to land his helicopter near his Portsea home on crown land.

Fox has been in dispute with the local council of his Toorak mansion by attempting to have the heritage listing that applies to all homes in the street removed from his property. His son's Toorak home was destroyed by fire.

Awards and recognition

  • Fox was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia in the Australia Day Honours of 1992, in recognition of service to the transport industry and to the community.
  • In 2001, he was awarded the Centenary Medal.
  • In the Australia Day Honours of 2008, he was advanced to Companion of the Order of Australia (AC), in recognition of his continued service to the transport and logistics industries, to business through the development and promotion of youth traineeships, and to the community through a range of philanthropic endeavours.
