Queensland property veteran Dudley Quinlivan has sought to start rebuilding his reputation by setting up a blog and open a Twitter account.
His blog says Dudley Quinlivan is a well-established businessman based in Queensland, Australia.
He first tweeted in mid-November, crediting himself as "Australian property planner and developer, international finance consultant."
There have been just the seven tweets under the Twitter handle, dudleyquinlivan.
The blog says Quinlivan is the managing director of the Croftworth group of companies, a privately owned major development group in south-east Queensland, under the banner headline The Philanthropist.
While it credits "a new avenue and direction in his career", Quinlivan does spruik his past property credentials.
"Dudley has experience in all aspects of property development and has over 25 years expertise, experience and direct involvement in business strategies, finance, sales and marketing and property development encompassing residential (both local and investment markets), educational, retail, commercial and industrial uses for his privately owned group of companies," it advises.
"Dudley has not only successfully developed major subdivisions in the Ipswich Shire but has also marketed and delivered hundreds of house and land packages in his own right as a developer in the Redbank, Logan, Brisbane and Gold Coast Shires.
"The depth of the combined experience and capabilities of Dudley’s development yeam is reflected by our large portfolio of developments within Queensland," the website says.
He was last in the news in July when his Southport, Queensland, riverfront home sold through mortgagees for $9.5 million at Ray White auction, the second-highest paid on the Gold Coast for three years.
He hit headlines after the collapse of the controversial Queensland property spruiking industry.
