Phillip King has $30 million worth of reasons he’s the Sutherland Shire’s king of commercial real estate. Aftera 30+ year career at IBM Australia, where he was one of the first mobile phone owners and worked with computers as big as living rooms, he thought it was time for retirement. He was wrong.
