Brett Henson: Man alleged to have stolen taxi from Sydney’s CBD turns out to be Mirvac executive

A man accused of drunk stealing a taxi after a viral police call went out has been exposed as a high-flying property manager and “family man” who lives in a multi-million dollar house in Sydney’s east.

Brett Henson, 42, is accused of threatening a 54-year-old taxi driver in the city’s central business district around 9pm on Friday November 4 before driving off in his car.

The taxi was then reportedly dumped about 5km east in Woollahra, where it was later found with “significant damage”.

Henson was arrested and charged six days later after CCTV footage of the alleged theft was shared via police social media channels.

Daily Mail Australia can reveal that Henson is a senior capital transactions manager for property development giant Mirvac and owns a $3.3million home in Bronte.

Henson was seen this week going to Waverley Police Station to make his weekly report – a requirement of his bail conditions.

Henson – who was dressed casually in shorts, a Nike T-shirt and trainers – appeared dejected and refused to answer questions about the alleged offences.

He was accompanied by a man in a suit, who was holding a briefcase and would not confirm whether or not he was the executive branch’s attorney.

On behalf of Henson, the man in the suit said he would not comment on the charges.

Earlier this morning, Henson was seen chatting to a pet daycare outside his lavish three-story home when she arrived to pick up his dog.

The pet health company charges $80 per day for dog sitting, or up to $150 per session for other services.

After she left, Henson strolled out his front gate and walked to the police station, stopping occasionally to smoke cigarettes, have a takeaway coffee, and take phone calls.

Under NSW law, driving licenses are immediately suspended if they are allegedly caught driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol.

A neighbor who wished to remain anonymous said he was “shocked” to learn of the allegations made against the businessman.

“He’s a family man,” they said.

“He has three young children and a beautiful wife. I can not believe it.’

Property records show that in November 2019, Henson purchased a 99-year-old one-story Bronte mansion for $2,425,000 before demolishing it for reconstruction.

Henson owns a multi-million dollar property in Sydney's eastern suburbs. A 1920s building that Henson bought for $2.4 million in 2019 was demolished and replaced with the three-story white brick house pictured above

In August of the following year, a $750,200 development permit was approved for 109 square meters.

It is understood that Henson was already in the real estate industry before Mirvac – having previously worked as an executive at Westfield and Scentre Group and as a regional real estate manager for Woolworths.

It remains unclear if Henson will remain employed at Mirvac after he was charged with taking and driving transportation without the owner’s consent, driving recklessly or angry, or driving at a dangerous speed and driving – 1st offense and driving the vehicle under the influence of alcohol.

A Mirvac spokesman said: “We cannot comment on the specifics of this issue.”

Henson was released on bail shortly after his November 10 arrest. He is due to appear in Downing Center Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday December 7th.
