Sentinel Fund Manager Australia, part of American real estate investment firm Sentinel Real Estate, has strengthened its construction and development capabilities with two new appointments.
Joining Sentinel’s team in Melbourne is Anthony Cuzzupi as project director, and in Perth, Owen Altham as development manager.
In his new role, Cuzzupi will manage the development of Sentinel’s projects in the eastern states from inception through approval, construction, and delivery. Prior to joining Sentinel, Cuzzupi managed his own property consultancy practice and was project director for SHL and senior development manager for Urban Regeneration at Lendlease. Cuzzupi also previously worked with major property organisations such as Stockland, Frasers Property, and CBRE.
As development manager, Altham will play a key role in the development of Sentinel’s upcoming BTR tower in Scarborough as well as the delivery of Phases II and III of Sentinel’s flagship Australian build-to-rent project, Element 27, in Subiaco, WA. Prior to joining Sentinel, Altham served as senior project manager at the Astina Group and project manager at APP Corporation.
Cuzzupi and Altham’s “development management expertise are incredibly valuable to the strength of our Australian pipeline,” said Keith Lucas, managing director of Sentinel Fund Manager Australia. “Their robust experience and knowledge of their local markets are bolstering our team’s ability to deliver premium build-to-rent projects across Australia as demand for the emerging model continues to flourish.”
