Owner And
Fierce Protector.

As the co-founder and former CEO of telecommunications infrastructure company Uniti Group, Che’s entrepreneurial journey has been underpinned by a business approach that is grounded in creative thinking and a thirst for knowledge.

After his previous business venture, Uniti Group, was sold in 2022, Che embarked on a new challenge and life-long dream – the development of South Australia’s first luxury off-grid eco private island.

With his background in business growth, telecommunications and media, coupled with his passion for ecological conservation and the restoration of this centuries old island, Che’s vision for Rumi on Louth intersects between his lifelong love for building things, and philosophy of continuous learning.

“I invite you all to come along for the journey with me, one wild adventure at a time”. – Che
