Bev Brock's Biography

Bev Brock was born and raised in West Australia. She is a former teacher and partner of Peter Brock for 28 years, is a mother of three with three grandchildren.

 

At 21 years of age, devastatingly Bev broke her neck in a Water-Skiing accident.  With 2 crushed vertebrae in her neck and 5 damaged in her spine , the surgeons told Bev she would never be able to play sport or have children.  It was during this fragile time in her life that both her interest in health and well-being and her Herculean spirit developed and as you can see today, she has defied the prognosis of the “experts” to lead not just an active and healthy life, but also quite an extraordinary one.

 

Bev met Peter Brock while living in Sydney however moved to Melbourne with her son James to be with Peter where she undertook post graduate studies in Special Education. Robert and Alexandra were born to Bev and Peter within the next four years.

 

While Bev was raising her family she was also involved with Peter in his joint venture with Holden – Holden Dealer Team Special Vehicles and HDT Racing.  The company employed approx. 80 people and Bev for a while looked after the Human Resources & administrative requirements of the Company.

 

In 1997, Peter and Bev cofounded the Peter Brock Foundation which was administered by Bev and initially funded by Brock fans via membership subscriptions.  The foundation supported people in crisis who often ‘slipped through the net’ of larger charitable organizations. Bev closed this down several years ago.

 

Bev is a member of the Melbourne Rotary Club, was a long time Patron of the Road Trauma Association, is currently a patron of the Lighthouse Foundation, L2P and Fatality Free Friday and is on the board of the Skyline Education Foundation. She is a tireless contributor to the community and a dedicated environmentalist with a self-confessed fascination with people and ‘what makes them tick’. To this end she studies and researches Bio Chemistry and Neuro-plasticity of the Brain and Epigenetics

 

Bev was awarded the Prime Minister’s Centenary Medal for Community & Charity Work, and the 2003 Nillumbik Shire Citizen of the Year for her work within her local community.
