I have over 26 years' experience in agency (Metropolitan and NSW), acquisition, development (nationally) and valuation. I have spent a significant proportion of my career in senior management roles including leading the Western Sydney Advisory operations for Colliers International between 2001 and 2005. Following a number of years in development and advisory I accepted the role of returning to Colliers International in 2012 to launch the Consultancy arm of the business (Strategic Advisory).
I have primary specialisation in development sites, feasibilities, deal structuring, highest and best analysis and portfolio reviews.
Head of Strategic Advisory
I joined Colliers International in 2018 as Head of Strategic Advisory. I am dedicated to leading the national team of multi-disciplinary experts to tailor strategic advisory services, across all market sectors and asset classes, to our client’s needs.
I have demonstrated success across a diverse range of property services including: strategy development, high stakes negotiation, change management, transaction management, asset management, leasing, operations, corporate real estate, funds management and development management in all market sectors.
As an established senior property professional and knowledge manager, with 25+ years’ industry experience, I possess strong interpersonal and business relationship management skills which are key to understanding client’s unique business requirements and the complex challenges explicit to the project lifecycle.
My early career was in Banking and later in trading with a Japanese Trading House where I imported equipment, established distributorships as well as providied financing for importers of our products. My entry into property was through the funding of real estate development projects with the Japanese Trading Houses and General Contractors. In this role I became the financial project manager and asset manager of over 40 commercial, retail, industrial and residential projects throughout Australia.
This opened the opportunities for development management, portfolio management, project marketing, feasibility studies and strategic analysis and in conjunction with my business partner we established a property consultancy, which we operated succesfully for over 20 years servicing our Japanese clients as well as government and private clients. I joined Colliers in 2015 when my business partner retired.
