Cushman & Wakefield appoint Guy Bennett as Managing Director Australia & New Zealand

Jess Freeman • 15/02/2023

Guy-BennettCushman & Wakefield is pleased to announce the internal appointment of Guy Bennett as Managing Director, CRE Australia & New Zealand. The intention is for Guy to permanently relocate to Sydney over the course of the year.

Guy has taken over from Simon Fenn who has chosen to do what he loves best and move back into the transactional side of the business as National Director - Industrial & Logistics Capital Markets, NSW, after having successfully grown the Commercial Real Estate business in Australia and New Zealand over the past two years.

Guy has 23 years’ experience in commercial real estate, having worked in London, Sydney and Adelaide on both the client and advisory side of the industry, including J.P. Morgan, EY and Charter Hall in a national role working across all facets of property and funds management.

During Guy’s 10 years back in Adelaide, he quickly became the leading broker in the market with a circa 75% market share of assets over $50m. These achievements recently saw him win the Property Council of Australia’s ‘Property Person of the Year’ award having sold over $5bn of institutional grade assets in South Australia.

Matthew Bouw, Cushman & Wakefield’s Chief Executive Asia Pacific said the CRE business has grown rapidly over the last five years through a mixture of M&A, strategic hiring and organic growth. We now have a full service integrated platform which I am sure Guy will take to the next level. We will always have a strong bias for promoting high performing talent like Guy into important leadership roles.

“Having previously worked with a leading REIT (Charter Hall) in Sydney in a national role across all markets and sectors of property, Guy has a deeply entrenched national network and is extremely well regarded externally and internally, with a well-rounded background and the ability to see and lead the agency business through a non-traditional lens.

“Since joining Cushman & Wakefield recently, Guy has worked with the national leadership team on Cushman & Wakefield’s growth strategy, including the diversification of the firm’s services and sectors across Australia and investment in its people and technology” he said.

Guy Bennett, Cushman & Wakefield’s Managing Director, CRE Australia & New Zealand, said he is excited to propel the national CRE business into the future, whilst utilising his market knowledge and experience to further service the firm’s client base.

“I am honoured to follow in Simon Fenn’s footsteps and look forward to leading the Cushman & Wakefield business into the next stage of its growth cycle.

“This is an exciting time for the Commercial Real Estate industry and I look forward to building on the strong foundations already in place around the country” he said.
