CEO Damian Hackett said that Place is committed to continually reviving its strategies and broadening its vision.

He said that the group’s intention is to be one of the most innovative real estate agencies in Australia.

“Most industries around the world are undergoing huge amount of change brought on mainly by advances in technology,” Mr Hackett said. 

“Real estate is no different. That’s why we’ve brought on David Sparksman to help keep us ahead of the game. We are thrilled to have someone of his expertise join the team.”

Mr Hackett said that Mr Sparksman is an industry leader within the IT world.

“He has worked with Place on various levels to help streamline company processes to deliver the best service to clients across the board,” Mr Hackett said.

Mr Sparksman said that he is pleased to be joining the Place leadership team.

“There is so much opportunity within Place,” the new head of innovation said. 

“I look forward to working with Damian, the leadership team and the entire company to identify the gaps that need closing and areas that need advancing.”

Place currently has 15 offices across Brisbane, with the CBD office being the most recent one opened.
