Rodney Price "best known in Australian business circles for his role as the Australian chief executive of the corporate-raiding empire of the New Zealander Sir Ron Brierley - was also active in property development and rural industries. His company chairmanships ranged from John Fairfax Holdings, publisher of the Herald, to Australian Wool Services.

"He became chief executive of Sir Ron's Industrial Equity Ltd in 1986, its heyday of takeovers of blue-chip Australian companies, including Woolworths and Pioneer International. The parent company, Brierley Investments, took a 25 per cent stake in Fairfax.

"When Mr Price left Brierley Investments in May 1998 he also relinquished the Fairfax chair, which he had taken only six months earlier when Sir Laurence Street retired from the role. In the 1990s he was an active property developer in London." [1]
