Accomplishments

Matthew’s client partnerships and ability to recognise trends in the market from his 30 years in the industry, have led to his implementation of the following initiatives within the Colliers business:

Restructuring Property Services: Matthew has been involved in over 350 workout strategies, developing sophisticated solutions to maximise results for the management or sale of distressed assets and land. Keeping in touch with market dynamics has provided an invaluable insight to sentiment, timing, supply and demand, and comparative values which has helped help him determine the best workout strategies, resulting in optimal outcomes across all asset types.

National Auctions: With over 1,000+ auctions conducted since 2020, Matthew and his team are proud to deliver in 2022 a new online Auction platform capturing the attention of a national audience.

Premium Investments: The successful implementation of a national Premium Investment strategy has seen hundreds of premium properties with typically long WALE, successfully sold as a result. By creating tension in the market to maximise the sale price, Matthew has helped his team drive exceptional results for their vendors.

Testimonials

“Our Relationship with Matthew and the Colliers Team has been built on trust and honesty over a number of years. Matthew has always provided us a single point of contact ensuring an exceptional standard to all appointments. We value Matthew’s advice and knowledge across all types of assets.”

Morgan Kelly | KPMG

 

"On behalf of Challenger I write to express our appreciation to both Matthew Meynell and the Restructuring Property Services team at Colliers International. Since our first experience working with the Restructuring Team in 2009, Matthew and his team have consistently delivered solid results and exceptional service levels, particularly in relation to reporting.

Given the litigious nature of the insolvency process, a rigorous reporting framework is crucial to protect against potential future claims from borrowers and other creditors. The Colliers International workout report remains unique among the numerous agency firms we work with and was a cutting edge concept when developed in 2009. That other firms have attempted to imitate this concept is validation that a new benchmark has been set.

The workout report containing all pertinent sale data and marketing material, presented on USB and in hard copy, assists a lender to document that appropriate probity requirements have been met. It also provides a level of comfort to lenders and receivers that appointing Colliers International is a safe option that will maximise realisation values for all stakeholders.

Matthew's position as a single point of contact has assisted to streamline our processes, leveraging his ability to identify and mobilise Colliers International's specialists nationally while providing a consistent approach to every appointment. It is because of this consistency and approach that Colliers International has cemented a position as a trusted property partner for insolvency property nationally.

I would, and do, recommend Matthew and the Restructuring Team without hesitation."
