Dexus Property Group this week announced the appointment of Chris Hynes to the new role of Group General Manager, Leasing in its office and industrial team.
Dexus Executive General Manager, Office and Industrial, Kevin George said: “Strong leasing capability is part of our Group’s DNA and a major driver of performance for our portfolio and our third party partners and funds.”
“We are delighted to have been able to attract a candidate of Chris’s calibre. He will add significant value to our business and complement our experienced team of Regional General Managers we have in place to manage our portfolio.
Chris’s appointment supports our strategy of delivering superior outcomes for our customers through a solutions-focused approach and leveraging the scale of our portfolio.”
Chris joins Dexus from CBRE where he was Senior Managing Director, Global Workspace Solutions. As head of the firm’s tenant representation, project management and outsourcing businesses, Chris represented occupiers in all major markets across a broad range of tenant types. He brings with him a wealth of key tenant relationships and strategic insight into office markets which is particularly relevant to Dexus’s Prime grade portfolio that accommodates many of these corporates.
“Chris has been an outstanding leader for CBRE, and we will miss his many contributions. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Chris as part of our valuable strategic partnership with Dexus”, said Ray Pittman, President and CEO for CBRE’s Pacific Region.
Dexus maintains strong relationships with the major agent fraternity and has grown its in-house team in order to enhance its solution based approach for its customers, with four new appointments in portfolio management and leasing over the past two years.
