by Amy Rosenfeld12 Feb 2014

Following CBRE’s announcement to enter Australia’s commercial lending market, the real estate giant has appointed a new national director, brokerage.

Jason Edge, based in CBRE’s Western Sydney office has been promoted to the role as part of a restructure of the businesses’ Pacific Industrial & Logistics Services division.

The Brokerage team will focus on generating occupier related transactions, including leasing, vacant possession building sales, development consultancy and land sales, said a statement by CBRE regional director Matt Haddon.

Meanwhile, Chris O'Brien has been appointed as national director, investments, based out of CBRE's Melbourne office.

The Investments team will focus on capital markets transactions, providing industrial property Investors with acquisition and divestment services, in addition to packaging the sale & leaseback of industrial property assets for corporate clients.

Haddon said the business line “had been more clearly delineated to recognise the specialised capabilities and skill sets of agents in the fields of Brokerage and Investments”.
