Chris Brown

Managing Director and CEO, Dixon Advisory AustraliaBCom, BChemEng (Hons)

Chris Brown is instrumental in the management and strategy of Dixon Advisory’s Australian operation. He uses his wealth of experience advising major Australian and international companies to oversee the firm’s senior leaders and influence the strategic direction and operations of the company. Chris is also an integral member of the Dixon Advisory Investment Committee, contributing his expertise in assessing and executing investment opportunities.

Chris shares the firm’s philosophy of focusing on creating the best possible outcomes for clients. He says, “I am especially proud of the quality of our ability to create and execute new institutional quality investment opportunities and other service offerings for our clients”.

Chris’s global corporate advice and investment experience and wide financial and business network supports the firm to capitalise on opportunities for clients to access specific asset classes and other investments that wouldn’t typically be available to them. He says, “While providing access to these innovative products is not the fundamental principle of our investment thesis, it is certainly one of the significant benefits of being a Dixon Advisory client”.

Chris has been associated with the Dixon family for over 20 years. He aligns Investment Committee recommendations in his personal portfolio, and his family and friends are long-term clients of the firm. Chris is also a director of funds in the Australian Masters Corporate Bond Fund and Australian Masters Yield Fund series, and a director of the responsible entity of both the US Masters Residential Property Fund and US Select Private Opportunities Fund.

He provided capital markets and mergers and acquisitions advice to public and private companies for transactions in chemicals, health care, consumer products, media, telecoms, technology, insurance and utilities. He also has worked in corporate finance and property funds management. Chris holds both a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering with first class honours and a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Sydney.
