Michael Kearins • 29/10/2020

Cushman & Wakefield has today announced the appointment of George Mair as Director, Tenant Advisory Group (TAG) in Perth, strengthening the team’s footprint in WA and complementing the business’ national presence.

George will work alongside Michael Kearins, Managing Director, Tenant Advisory Group, and provide strategic leasing advice to a range of clients both national and across the Perth office market. 

George has over five years’ experience across occupier solutions, leasing and property acquisitions. He joins Cushman & Wakefield from Mair Property Funds where he was focused on the acquisition of office assets in Perth. 

Prior to that, he was an Associate Director of Real Estate for WeWork Australia & New Zealand during a phase of strong growth in the co-working space over a number of years. Over this time, George concluded many highly complicated leasing transactions including multiple pre-commit deals for new developments and large refurbishments.

During his time at WeWork the business’ footprint grew from five to 21 committed locations in Australia and New Zealand, across more than 120,000 square metres of office space. George transacted in all major Australian and New Zealand markets with a range of both private and institutional landlords. 

George was also formerly a Consultant, Occupier Solutions at Knight Frank Australia, supporting a range of office leasing transactions in key east coast markets. He holds a bachelor’s degrees of Science and Commerce from UWA and a Masters of Property and Development from UNSW.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Managing Director, Tenant Advisory Group Australia and New Zealand, Michael Kearins, said, “We are excited to welcome George to the team as we continue to build our tenant advisory capabilities to better service clients across the country."

“The Perth market has shown remarkable resilience amid the impact of COVID-19, and with the addition of George’s expertise alongside our existing project management, valuation and facilities management teams, we are even better placed to assist occupiers as circumstances normalise and their needs evolve.”

Cushman & Wakefield’s Director, Tenant Advisory Group, George Mair, said, “I’m absolutely thrilled to join Cushman & Wakefield’s national tenant advisory team and work with Perth-based clients to develop and execute their leasing strategies.”
