Team welcomes five new appointments in key markets as 2016 kicks off with a bang
Colliers International continues to grow its industrial presence in Melbourne with the appointment of five new specialists across the south-eastern, northern, city fringe and Port Melbourne markets.
Tony Iuliano, Colliers International National Director of Industrial, said the appointments would bolster the Victorian industrial team and expand its offering to clients across all geographic sectors.
“Our team now comprises 20 operatives across all markets and we will continue to grow in 2016,” Mr Iuliano said.
New appointments are as follows:
• Adrian Rowse – Director
• Damian Marinelli – Executive
• Lachlan Dornauf – Executive
• Maria Mitsios – Executive
• Charlie Woodley – Executive
“We are thrilled to welcome Adrian Rowse to Colliers International, based in the Melbourne CBD office,” Mr Iuliano said. “Adrian has in excess of 15 years of experience in the commercial and industrial real estate market, providing advice to a range of institutional clients including Goodman, Charter Hall, Stockland, Frasers, AMP, Growthpoint and Centuria, just to mention a few."
Mr Rowse will work closely with Mr Iuliano, providing analytical and sales support in growing Colliers International’s industrial capital markets business in Victoria.
“The team continues to grow with the addition of Lachlan Dornauf, who will work in the city fringe/Port Melbourne market alongside Clinton Ramm,” Mr Iuliano said. “We have also recently promoted Maria Mitsios into an Executive position within our south-eastern team, and our north-west team has received an additional boost with the arrive of Damian Marinelli, who will work closely with Marco Sandrin and Brent Glassford."
Also joining the Melbourne North-West team is Charlie Woodley, who previously worked at Little Real Estate. Mr Woodley will work closely with Ashley McIntyre and Nick Saunders.
The growth of the team comes as Colliers International prepares for an active year in the Victorian industrial market.
“The Victorian industrial market will continue to dominate on a national scale in 2016,” Mr Iuliano said. “We expect to see significant growth across all our key geographic locations, in the south east, western, northern markets and city fringe markets.
“Demand and capital will continue to flow into the Victorian industrial market, with a strong appetite for core logistics assets.
“As housing construction continues, the need to warehouse and manage household goods that consumers purchase to furnish these new houses continues to drive industrial demand.
“Owner-occupiers continue to drive enquiry in our Victorian industrial offices. Transport occupiers are still very active, and many have requirements for heavy duty hardstand and loading docks sub-5,000sqm.
“The investment market will also continue to go from strength to strength, as a multitude of buyer types search for prime grade facilities to purchase with strong tenant covenants and reasonable WALEs.
“The Port Melbourne area in particular will attract keen interest in the year ahead, as it continues to be characterised by a major change in usage – that is, from a predominately industrial area to one now highly sought after by residential developers. This may open up an opportunity for an automotive precinct elsewhere in Melbourne, perhaps in an area such as the inner west.”
