Originally located in New Zealand, many members of the Goodman family have expatriated to Australia. After living in Australia for more than a decade, they returned on their private jet in the last few years. Before long, the family is expected to take control of Air New Zealand. They are already the owners of a large portion of New Zealand's food industry. Their father began the company and received the title of Sir Pat Goodman for his business and philanthropic enterprises.

Altogether, the Goodman family has a total net worth that is estimated to be at $820 million. They are creating a new headquarters for their airline within Viaduct Harbor in Auckland. All of the different properties and companies owned by the Goodman family are managed by Macquarie Goodman Group. This business was formed by a merger of Goodman Hardie and Macquarie. The current chief executive officer is Greg Goodman and Craig Goodman serves as the director of development for the Asia-Pacific area.
Patrick Goodman also works with the company through the family's investment branch. Originally, Sir Patrick started the food business with just a bakery near Nelson. Following the success of the bakery, the family consistently branched out into the international food business. The sons grew up working on a cattle farm and were taught to work for their earnings.
