Cushman & Wakefield has tapped Brisbane talents to be the frontmen of its national investment sales team as the firm looks to step up its game in the country’s commercial property scene.
The global real estate services company has announced Daniel Cullinane is the new head of national investment sales (NIS) in Queensland. Sam Nugent was also named as sales executive for the NIS team, in a move to further beef up the business’ commercial property arm.
Cushman & Wakefield’s managing director of Queensland Jonathan O’Brien said that the appointments came at a strategic time.
“Daniel and Sam’s appointment is very timely as the commercial investment market continues in an upward trajectory, with income-producing properties heavily sought after in the current market,” he said.
Both executives bring with them a formidable career track record that is seen to add to the NIS team’s strength, according to Cushman & Wakefield.
Mr Cullinane has over seven years of experience under his belt in investment sales, funds management and development. He can also leverage his experiences and skills gained throughout his time with GFG Capital and Colliers International.
Meanwhile, Mr Nugent joins the roster after working with Queensland Sotheby’s International Realty, touting a 33-property sale record amounting to $75 million just within his first 18 months.
The appointments come as Cushman & Wakefield looks to grow its national footprint. In its latest push, the firm has also recently unveiled its acquisition of Sheffield Property, a Perth-based office leasing and property management agency.
This business venture will see Sheffield Property’s team, led by Mark Clapham and Digby Sutherland, join the Cushman & Wakefield fold.
Both Mr Clapham and Mr Sutherland will helm the firm’s Western Australian commercial real estate (CRE) business, working closely with the national leadership team.
According to the firm, the acquisition is the latest step in its strategy to establish a market-leading commercial real estate and occupier services platform across Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
This also marks Cushman & Wakefield’s fifth acquisition since 2015, as it looks to further extend its capability and interstate service coverage.
