Professional Summary

My career commenced after graduating from the University of Western Sydney in 1989 and has included several market cycles.  I have completed major property valuations throughout Australia and some overseas posts including Jakarta, Singapore, Port Moresby, Tonga and Samoa.

I achieved the status of Business Valuer after completing additional qualifications through the API/University of Western Sydney and a graduate diploma in Applied Finance and Investment Analysis.

My focus since joining Colliers in July 2006 has been on major commercial assets in the ACT and the management of large government portfolios on a local, national and international level.   


Prior to joining Colliers in July 2006 I was employed by the Australian Valuation Office and worked as a property valuer in Sydney, Newcastle, Lismore, Darwin and Alice Springs.  In 2005 I was part of the Business Valuation Unit of ATO in Sydney and Brisbane.

Since joining Colliers I have completed valuations of most major commercial ofice buildings in Canberra and over 700 valuations above $5 million.  In 2017 I became the global valuation maanger for the DFAT Overseas Property Proprtfolio that includes 127 posts throughout 53 countries.  I have also managed multiple government, not for profit and private valuation projects at a national, state and territory level.

Rob, I just wanted to mention to you that the quality of your schedule was excellent.

I did not have much trouble reconciling your schedule to mine. Also thank you for working closely with Facilities.

Information on building area , year built , and many other details will be recorded in finance asset management system for the first time which will hopefully come in handy when the valuation is undertaken again in 3 years’ time.

Having access of photos is  tremendous help as I do not get to see these assets unless they are on campus. Even then I don’t actively look for them (especially sheds etc.), hence will help when I receive any enquiries in the future
