Colliers secures global property leader.
John Kenny, Chief Executive Officer of Australia and New Zealand at Colliers International, has announced a significant appointment to the business with the highly respected, capital markets expert Craig Shute to join the company as National Director.
Mr Shute has an enviable reputation for success in major markets across Asia and the United States, with a track record of growing clients and building high-performing teams.
His role at Colliers will see him work closely with James Young, State Chief Executive of South Australia to grow our Adelaide business; assist our national clients by leveraging his unparalleled knowledge of Asia and offshore capital markets; and, implement other corporate development opportunities and international best practice initiatives.
“Craig has built successful teams and businesses across the globe, from Hong Kong, China and Malaysia to Las Vegas and San Diego,” said John Kenny.
“He is a perfect fit for Colliers and I’m delighted that he has agreed to take on this senior role, working alongside other leaders across the business.
“The insights and expertise developed in major global markets will be of enormous benefit to our clients keen to harness his market intelligence and deep understanding of global capital flows.”
More broadly, Mr Shute’s role will see him work with our South Australian business to grow our market share across all service lines and mentor our younger property professionals. He will also assist the national Capital Markets team to win more new business in Australia and New Zealand and boost our Asian-based client initiatives.
“I couldn’t think of a better fit for me than Colliers,” said Mr Shute. “I have always respected Colliers International as the only Australian born global brand with an enviable reputation in the major markets.
“I am genuinely excited about bringing my energy and expertise to the role.
“There is immense opportunity for growth in South Australia and around the country, and I’m looking forward to sharing my experience in offshore markets and diverse network of contacts with the broader business and clients.”
Originally from South Australia, Mr Shute has previously been the Managing Director of CBRE businesses in Adelaide, Hong Kong, Las Vegas and San Diego.
