Tim Cassidy, Cushman & Wakefield’s Head of Industrial Sales & Leasing, New South Wales, said: “We are seeing substantial growth in the industrial property market in New South Wales and are investing in our industrial platform to meet ongoing demand from vendors and investors.

The small business tax deductions announced in the Federal Budget will further support demand, adding to the increasing competition for industrial assets as investors seek to secure sites suitable for future residential development.

Commenting on the key appointments Phillip Rockliff, Managing Director, Cushman & Wakefield Commercial Real Estate NSW: “I am pleased to welcome these six key people to the team, to be led by Orlando Maciel. Combined, we have built an extremely powerful and able Industrial Sales & Leasing team in Western Sydney. Their experience will provide a depth and breadth of support needed to continue building our presence in the growing industrial property sector in New South Wales.

With a strong outlook for the New South Wales industrial property sector, we expect this demand will continue to intensify, and the addition of these six industry experts to the team further strengthens our capability to deliver the best outcome for our clients in the sector,” Mr Rockliff concluded.
