Social infrastructure to get boost with trio of appointments

Must read

A leading commercial firm has welcomed three new specialists to turbocharge the firm’s focus on the housing and justice sectors.

Together, the newcomers collectively bring over 60 years of experience to the company.

The appointments will reportedly help Cushman & Wakefield expand its capacity to deliver specialised valuations, social infrastructure and strategic planning.

The trio – Leonie Grover, George Housakos, and Elizabeth Walsh – all previously worked for PwC in Melbourne.

Grover brings substantial expertise in the justice sector, on both national and international levels. She has two decades of experience in understanding the policy, demand, strategic and commercial requirements to make complex infrastructure projects happen.

“Leonie’s commitment to making a change through the delivery of social infrastructure projects aligns perfectly with Cushman & Wakefield’s dedication to providing tailored real estate solutions,” the company stated.

Like Grover, Housakos also has over 20 years of experience in the social infrastructure sector.

His particular emphasis is on the national housing sector, with specialities in development, design, government policy, subsidies and new market housing products – all specialities that Cushman & Wakefield believe will help power their “commitment to driving housing supply through a real estate lens”.

Walsh comes with over 20 years of experience in a broad sweep of asset classes. As well as residential and government assets, Walsh has extensive experience in diverse sectors such as ports, airports, solar, and wind farms.

Cushman & Wakefield’s managing principal and partner of Advisory+, Ross Hamilton, expressed confidence about the team’s future with the three new associate partners on board.

“As we continue to expand and diversify, we are empowered to serve our clients with even greater proficiency and innovation,” said Hamilton.

“These strategic additions reinforce our ability to provide unparalleled transaction, commercial advice and tailored solutions to meet the evolving needs of our clients.”

Hamilton concluded: “With a steadfast commitment to delivering exceptional results, we look forward to the exciting opportunities that lie ahead and the continued success of our team.”
