Testimonials

"The Colliers strategy around positioning the asset and executing on the sale campaign was extremely well thought and relevant.  Colliers also dealt with the challenges relating to border closures well through the high level of marketing information including videos and leasing data to assist decision makers that could not travel". 

Chris Davis, Head of Logistics | GPT 

"Your strategy around marketing this asset and executing a successful sale campaign was extrememly well thought through and drew out the unique aspects of this asset.  Also as you had promised at the outset you took a hands on approach throughout this assignment".

Hamish Fleet, Joint Managing Director | Arcadia 

"This was not an easy transaction and took a complex negotiation and conditional agreement period to complete the deal.  At all times Colliers were at hand to provide advice to Incitec Pivot and help to negotiate a deal which suited our key financial hurdles".

Frank Micallef, Chief Financial Officer | Incitec Pivot Limited
