After establishing Kerdic in 1988, Jim immediately set about growing the business which over the years progressed from a local home builder to a developer of master planned communities. Kerdic’s developments now stretch from the Gold Coast to Cairns in far north Queensland as well as interest in international projects.
Kerdic’s success has been brought about largely by Jim’s vision to excel in Kerdic’s various fields of endeavour, whether it be building a home or developing a master-planned community. The vision also saw the development of a vertically integrated supply chain that included manufacturing key elements for the home (e.g. kitchens, bathroom furniture, baths), to complement the group’s development and construction activities.
In 2011, in a strategic move that drew upon the capabilities and skills of both Kerdic Homes and Nova Deko, Jim engineered the manufacturing of prefabricated modular homes by Nova Deko. International demand for these homes is growing at a rapid rate.
Jim’s passions are contagious, resulting in a group of companies that firmly share his vision and drive for innovation and excellence. His outside interests include keeping up with various sports and international affairs.


Sandi (wife of the Kerdic founder, Jim Dickson) is primarily responsible for accounts payable. Sandi joined Kerdic during the earlier years of expansion, after a career in nursing. Sandi’s outside interests revolve around her family and her dogs.


Grant is a long serving member of Kerdic’s team, having been with the company since its inception in 1988.

One of the original Kerdic employees, Gail manages the finances for the group of companies. Gail has an Australian and International banking background and over Kerdic’s growth years has performed a variety of roles within the company.
Gail has a Diploma of Business Distinct (winning most outstanding student award), Post Graduate Certificate in Business and is currently undertaking a Master in Business Administration. Her outside interests include reading, camping and fishing.


Sandy (commonly known as Sand) is responsible for the administration and monitoring of Kerdic’s development and construction projects.
