Managing Director | Office Leasing
As the Managing Director of the Office Leasing Division my team includes over 100 staff and more than 75 leasing operatives across every State and Territory. I have been with Colliers International for 25 years, joining the Office Leasing team in 1993 and worked my way up to Managing Director in 2005. Along with managing the Office Leasing National Team I hold a number of senior positions within Colliers including a member of the ANZ Executive, Executive Leadership Team and Senior Leadership Team. I am a Licenced Estate Agent and a member of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria, Property council of Australia and RICS - Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyor.
I have 30 years of office leasing experience and have been successfully involved in the marketing and leasing of major projects in all Australian major capital cities. I have also provided consultative and advisory services on numerous projects; understanding the 'why' and 'how' of undergoing a project is a passion of mine as it provides the basis for the leasing strategy of the property. Whether the project is considering the urban realm, retail, residential, office, cultural or entertainment purpose, I have the knowledge and experience to provide clients with a dedicated personnel that will be able to assist in the end-to-end project and deliver upon the objectives. Some of my accomplishments include the successful letting of up to 75,000sqm at Southgate's IBM Centre and HWT Tower, 20,000sqm at 120 Collins Street, and more recently Melbourne's largest ever office leasing transaction at 700 Collins Street securing NAB for 61,000sqm.
