Sydney, Australia – KNIGHT Frank has announced a National Head of Investment Sales to strengthen its client offering in this space around Australia.
Scott Timbrell will return to the role after vacating it in January to take on his current role of Partner, Head of Franchise Partnerships, which he will continue to fulfil in conjunction with being National Head of Investment Sales.
He will assume the duties currently covered by Paul Roberts, Partner, National Head of Agency, who has been caretaking the role of National Head of Investment Sales.
Mr Roberts said Scott brings a wealth of expertise and experience to the role, having worked in the property industry for more than a decade.
“Having Scott hold both of his current roles will assist Knight Frank in delivering a better offering to our clients, as it will connect both our corporate and partner offices like never before. Knight Frank Australia will have a true national reach from capital cities to regional areas.
“Scott’s business acumen and focus on building high-performance collaborative teams for growth has seen him lead our teams at Knight Frank with great success.”
Mr Timbrell said he was looking forward to moving back into the role of National Head of Investment Sales and would approach it from a fresh angle after a short hiatus.
“Being across these two roles will enable me to create a better synergy between all of Knight Frank’s offices, which will ultimately benefit our clients and in turn, the Knight Frank business,” he said.
“Across the board around Australia we are seeing greater confidence in the commercial property market, with buyers ready to act on quality investment opportunities.
“We know that activity will only strengthen as we head further towards the end of the year and with light at the end of the tunnel for COVID restrictions in New South Wales, it is set to be a strong finish to 2021.”
One of Scott’s most recent notable transactions is the sale of an 18,453sq m site known as Lachlan’s Line in Macquarie Park, which is the largest high-density development site to transact in the Sydney Metro area in the past 24 months.
