CBRE appoints new state leaders in NSW and Victoria

CBRE has announced high profile new leaders for its NSW and Victorian businesses. 

Andrew Roy, the long-time Head of Global Origination & Transactions, Real Estate at AMP Capital, will be joining CBRE later this year to lead NSW while Dean Hunt has been promoted to head the firm’s Victorian business.

CBRE’s Pacific President & CEO Phil Rowland said the appointments highlighted CBRE’s ongoing focus on identifying leading talent to drive the firm’s growth and ability to deliver superior client outcomes.

“We conducted an exhaustive internal and external search to identify the right people to oversee our largest Pacific geographies,” Mr Rowland said.

“Andrew was a clear standout to assume the NSW leadership, given his exceptional background in Capital Markets, breadth of industry knowledge and proven leadership expertise. In Victoria, we identified Dean as the natural successor for the state leadership based on his leadership track record and deep knowledge of CBRE, our clients and our future growth drivers.”

Mr Roy will join CBRE in October after 15 years at AMP Capital, following senior roles at Investa and Westpac. In his new role as Executive Managing Director, Mr Roy will be based in CBRE’s Sydney office and will also join the firm’s Pacific Executive Committee (EC).

In Victoria, Mr Hunt will assume the state Executive Managing Director role this week and will also join the Pacific EC. He succeeds Mark Coster, who recently assumed sole responsibility for CBRE’s Pacific Capital Markets business.

Mr Hunt led CBRE’s Victorian Industrial & Logistics (I&L) – Investor business for eight years prior to taking on a new role last year overseeing the firm’s Pacific A&T – Occupier team and Victorian A&T Investor Leasing businesses. 

He will also continue to play an active role in facilitating major transactions through CBRE’s recently launched I&L Development Services business.
