Commenting on the appointment, Cushman & Wakefield’s National Head of Office Leasing, Tim Molchanoff, said: “I am pleased to welcome Rob as a Director in our NSW Office Leasing team and expect both the existing team and our clients will benefit from his deep experience in the Sydney office leasing market.”

“Rob joins a growing team of experienced office leasing professionals nationally and follows the key appointments in the Brisbane CBD office leasing team in May 2018, bringing our national team to 32 agents.”

Tim Courtnall, Head of NSW Office Leasing, said: “Rob’s project leasing track record and institutional experience will add to the credentials of the growing team. In 2018, the NSW office leasing team transacted over 175 deals and this senior appointment will embed our position as leaders in the Sydney office leasing market.”

Rob Dickins added: “I look forward to joining Cushman & Wakefield’s rapidly growing office leasing business and I am excited to work alongside Tim Molchanoff and Tim Courtnall to support the National Office Leasing platform.”

“I am joining the Cushman & Wakefield team at a crucial time for office leasing conditions in Sydney. Robust demand for CBD space has driven vacancies to decade lows of 4.1% and elevated rents continue to change the dynamics of the broader Sydney leasing market.

“While a number of major developments are expected to introduce significant additional capacity within the CBD, many of these are not expected to complete until 2020 or beyond. This means that major corporate occupiers continue to look closely at fringe and metro markets as genuine CBD alternatives,” Mr Dickins concluded.
