Educated at Shore School, Corbett graduated from UNSW Sydney with a Bachelor of Commerce.
In 2003, Corbett was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for service to the retail industry, particularly as a contributor to the development of industry policy and standards, and to the community. In 2008, he was promoted to an officer of the Order of Australia (AO) for service to business, particularly through leadership and executive roles in the retail sector and a range of allied organisations, and to the community.

Currently, there is a bitter relationship between Fairfax Media chairman and its largest shareholder Gina Rinehart. The relationship developed to the personal level once Fairfax Media's incumbent board of directors declined Gina Rinehart's request to offer her three seats on the board of directors.
Corbett is married to Rosemary Corbett, a former teacher and they have three children: Amanda, a marketer; Sarah, a teacher; and Robert, a salesman.
