Director | Strategic Advisory
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.
National Director | Strategic Advisory
I have over 29 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.
Director, Alternative Infrastructure | Strategic Advisory
Having worked in the property industry for over 10 years, specifically the retail sector, I have consistently been challenged to deliver additional returns for investors and savings for tenants.
Looking at real property assets with a different perspective has led me to address key sustainability initiatives coupled with a desire to improve savings and costs bases for all property sectors.
My key property relationships and understanding of such forms a solid foundation from which to build such initiatives and deliver new and emerging technology or ways of thinking.
