Once Were Panelbeaters

NZ’s 2003 “Rich List” is headed by billionaire businessman Graeme Hart, who last year accomplished a daring takeover of Australian food giant, Goodman Fielder. Hart was the subject of the Australian headline; ‘Once were panelbeaters, now cashed-up Kiwis.’ Other members include Stephen Tindall, Lucy Lawless, Rachel Hunter, Eric Watson, the Auckland Warriors, and newcomers Rodney Duke (Briscoes Group) and Michael Erceg (Independent Liquor). Sailors Russell Coutts and Brad Butterworth also made the grade.
