Cushman & Wakefield today announced it has significantly strengthened its Sydney Office Leasing team with the appointment of Giuseppe Ruberto as Head of North Shore office leasing.
Giuseppe joins Cushman & Wakefield from Knight Frank, where he held the position of Partner, Head of Office Leasing, North Shore. With over 15 years’ experience in the commercial property sector, Giuseppe has been recognised among the leading office leasing agents in Sydney having won the ESR Commercial Office Leasing Transaction 2019, the Investa Hardest Deal of the Year Award 2019, Centuria Agent of the Year 2018 and Dexus Transaction of the Year 2017.
Having specialised in the North Shore and metropolitan Sydney markets for over a decade, Giuseppe has represented a range of institutional and private landlords and investors including Investa, Mirvac, Centuria, Altis and Dexus.
The appointment forms part of the ongoing growth of Cushman & Wakefield’s commercial real estate business, and follows a number of senior hires in 2019 across its NSW office leasing platform, including Rob Dickins as Director.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Head of Office Leasing NSW, Tim Courtnall, said: “We’re excited to welcome the number one metropolitan leasing agent to lead our North Shore and metropolitan expansion and build on the success of Cushman & Wakefield’s market leading CBD office leasing team.”
“Office space in the metropolitan market continues to be highly sought after due to its relative affordability, quality of new developments, improving amenity and transport infrastructure.”
Giuseppe said: “I’m excited to join Cushman & Wakefield amid tremendous momentum for the business and following the office leasing team’s involvement in some of the Sydney CBD’s most significant leasing deals in the last 3 years. I look forward to growing Cushman & Wakefield’s office leasing footprint in the North Shore and metropolitan markets and continuing to provide strategic advice and service to our institutional and private clients.”
"With a significant pipeline of new developments for 2020 and beyond, there are no signs of activity in the North Shore and metropolitan market slowing down”.
