The South Australia Dinner

Grant Wilckens - CEO Discovery Holiday Parks
Tuesday, 20 June 2017

Grant Wilckens is the CEO and co-founder of Discovery Holiday Parks, Australia’s largest owner and operator of lifestyle, holiday and workforce accommodation parks. The company employs over 850 people at more than 60 locations in all states of Australia. In South Australia the company has eight parks and with its head office employs over 200 people here.

In December 2015 Discovery was successful in the $240m hostile takeover of public group, Aspen Parks, resulting in a significant growth of jobs at the Adelaide based head office. Grant drives innovation to keep the business ahead of the competition. In 2014 Grant received an award of $20,000 to support his attendance at the Executive Leadership Development Program at Stanford Graduate School of Business in California. Discovery Holiday Parks is another inspirational South Australian success story that tends to fly under the radar.
