A New South Wales-based network has introduced a new formal leadership structure, which shakes up its C-suite and adds a number of board appointments.

Di Jones has revealed that, moving forward, it will be implementing an advisory board as the formal leadership structure of the business.

According to the network, it’s a move that’s set to further strengthen its status as “the largest independently owned real estate company in New South Wales” and will empower innovation and growth.

The shake-up means Rob Ward will be stepping aside from his joint-CEO role to lead the advisory board, while Dean Mackie is set to continue as the network’s CEO in sole capacity from 1 May 2021.

For Mr Ward, the move into the role of chair will allow him to use his experience to provide strategic direction for the Di Jones business.

“I am extremely proud of the Di Jones brand and excited for the future of the company,” he began.

“The role of chair will also allow me to continue as a shareholder and to expand my breadth of business interest.”

Commenting on the switch-up, Mr Mackie said “we thrive on an environment of continuous improvement for the benefit of our customers and the decision to create an advisory board provides Di Jones with a formal structure for innovation and growth, enabling a strong platform for leadership”.

He said innovation and agility “is key to the success of the Di Jones brand”, with the advisory board able to “cascade the vision throughout the organisation”.

Mr Ward outlined that, “as CEO, Dean moves into the full operational function for the agency, and as chair, I will work closely with Dean, and Brent May who has been elevated to the role of head of revenue, as well as an experienced leadership”.

Rob Ward, Dean Mackie, Brent May, Pamela Styling and Les Hercules Kalas will be the board’s inaugural appointees, with the new chair explaining that Di Jones plans to appoint “both internal and external experts to join the advisory board to help guide us through this incredible period of growth”.
