National Manager | Marketing & Communications
Olivia's passion for pursuing a career in the property industry was ignited when she joined a prominent residential real estate firm after graduating with a double degree in Commerce/Arts at University in Western Australia. With a major in marketing, her scope included Anthropology & Sociology, Brand Management, Graphic Design and Digital Marketing. While gaining broad experience across a range of paid part-time marketing roles during university she chose to apply her skillset to a career in property from recognising the significant opportunity for growth and continued engagement in such a diverse industry.
With 6+ years of Marketing experience, a background of residential property gave her the foundations to tackle the vast retail property machine, after moving to Sydney to further her career in property at Ray White North Ryde. Primarily focused on the Retail Leasing and Large Format Retail sector, Olivia works closely with the Head of Retail across the National Retail Business to deliver strategic marketing collateral, support and expertise to the national team.

My professional knowhow stems from an extensive career in retail property development, project leasing, site acquisition and disposals and property management.
I joined Colliers International after holding the position of National Business Manager for Stockland Commercial for 9 years. During this time I was responsible for the acquisition and disposal of just over $750M worth of Retail and Commercial assets.
Prior to my Capital Transactions role in Commercial Property, I was the Regional General Manager Leasing for the Stockland Shopping Centre portfolio.
Prior to Stockland, I was the National Leasing Manager for Lend Lease Retail here in Australia. I worked on some of Australia’s leading Retail projects including, Casuarina Darwin, Melbourne Central, Sunshine Plaza and Smithfield in QLD and Woden in the ACT. I was the Lend Lease Asset Manager for the Kiwi Income Fund and worked on several of their retail projects in New Zealand.
Prior to Lend Lease, I was a National Director with Jones Lang Wootton in both WA and NSW and ran the National Project Leasing team for again some of Australia’s best retail assets and Portfolios.
I also have a lengthy career in the media working for John Fairfax and Sons in TV and Radio for many years.

Director | Retail Leasing
Retail Property is my passion , and importantly, in appreciating that site selection and the right rent deal can make or break any business. 20 years of experience in real estate, with over 15 years in retail property, on both sides of the fence, gives me a unique advantage in ensuring optimal site selection for success.
I've worked as the lessor (Knight Frank and Westfield leasing - Carindale, Chermside, Toombul, Bondi Cairns central, Caneland ( Mackay), Redbank Plaza) and as the tenant (Outsourced Coffee Club, Vivians Jewellery, Grill'd, Matchbox, Just Cuts, Riot Art & Craft and New Zealand Natural) - all of who successfully expanded under my watch. This experience and knowledge is irreplaceable in the retail business and sets both Colliers , and myself, apart from the rest of the market
In my role with Colliers I oversee the Brisbane and Gold Coast leasing teams and personally specialise in the Brisbane CBD market and key Projects.
