As C.E.O., Vanessa Cox has overseen the brokering infrastructure for in excess of $30 billion dollars worth of property at Long Tail and is ready to support more than 50,000 families in Australia into the future with impressive growth planned for several countries across the continent of Asia.

“I set out to break the mould in excellent customer experiences as I was sick to the teeth of Australians putting up with sub-standard customer care elsewhere,” asserted Vanessa Cox. “At Long Tail, there is no disconnect between the lifestyle that we are helping people live and the utility brands they invest in. Customer expectations have shifted too as consumers are super-connected online.”

Vanessa Cox’s managerial business world experiences, prior to Long Tail, are valued at in the region of $100 million dollars. She was part of an Australian Government project with a budget of $41 billion dollars.

Vanessa Cox’s natural determined streak stems from a horrific childhood accident when she shattered her hip after falling from a horse. She was confined to a wheelchair for two years. The young Vanessa was so focused on her recovery while being homeschooled that she chose a business chair on wheels instead of a new wheelchair from a catalogue.
