Iconic property giant Lang Walker AO died on January 28, surrounded by his family. This would have been his 60th year in business.


Extract of the media statement by the Walker Family.
The Walker family said the property stalwart, husband, father and grandfather would forever be in their hearts.


“Lang loved creating incredible places where people can live and work, but he loved his family more than anything else in the world and his generosity and affection had no boundaries,” the statement said.


“Our hearts are broken by the loss of a great man who changed the lives of so many people through his visionary projects and philanthropy.


“His zest for life and his relentless pursuit of perfection lives on within everyone in the Walker family.”


The directors of Walker Corp paid tribute to Walker in a statement, which acknowledged he had “built a world class business shaping the Group into Australia’s largest privately owned property company”.


“Lang’s vision will remain an enduring force through the Walker DNA and the Walker Way which he actively passed on – it is embedded in our culture and our modus operandi,” Walker Corp chief executive David Gallant said.


“The vital importance of business continuity and the need to maintain key relationships to retain our pre-eminent position has been instilled in all of us.


We offer our sincerest condolences to the Walker Family and to those within the greater property industry that had known Lang Walker. We have truly lost a visionary leader.


We are grateful for the opportunity to have worked with Walker Corporation and being able to make a contribution to some of the communities he created.


Rest in Peace Lang Walker.
