Rod Connelly

President and founder of the company, Rod Connelly has been active in residential, commercial, and retail developments in both the Australian and United States markets over the past 35 years.

After graduating from the University of Adelaide in South Australia in 1972, he was appointed project manager with Lend Lease Corporation, one of the largest construction and development companies in the world.

In 1978, Mr. Connelly was selected to oversee operations for Lend Lease in Florida. In 1983, Rod was offered the management role of the Lend Lease Office in Singapore, which he gracefully declined, having made the decision to venture into property development. Utilizing the knowledge acquired during his Lend Lease tenure, Rod formed the company, which today goes under the Civix brand, and pursued multiple opportunities in the growth areas of West Coast Florida.

Since those early days, Civix has grown into a widely recognized name in the industry. Mr. Connelly increased the business based on the foundation of aligning common interests of all stakeholders irrespective of the project type or pursuit. To quote his mentor, Dick Dusseldorp, founder of Lend Lease "There are two things in life. You can be out for the maximum amount of profit you can possibly squeeze from your effort or you can aim at a reasonable profit and have a feeling that you leave something behind." Rod adds, "with great satisfaction if your efforts provide sustained employment for people in the community in which you do business."

Terry Dorman

Executive Vice President, Terry Dorman has been involved in real estate acquisitions and development for over the past 35 years. Mr. Dorman graduated from the University of Florida in 1967.

He began his real estate career as a corporate pilot for a Florida based Development Company where he soon became partner and director of the acquisitions division.

Mr. Dorman joined Civix in 1992 and has represented the company primarily in land acquisition since that date. Mr. Dorman's knowledge of the "Florida Landscape" has given the company a definitive advantage in its property acquisition pursuits.
