Knight Frank has appointed a national head of investment sales, with the goal of strengthening its client offering in the Australian investment sector.
Scott Timbrell has been re-appointed as Knight Frank’s national head of investment sales, which is a role he previously held until January this year.
He initially left the position to take his current position as head of franchise partnerships, which he will continue to fulfil.
Mr Timbrell will assume the duties currently covered by Paul Roberts, partner, national head of agency, who has been caretaking in the role of national head of investment sales.
Mr Roberts said Mr Timbrell brings a wealth of expertise and experience to the role, having worked in the property industry for more than a decade.
“Having Scott hold both of his current roles will assist Knight Frank in delivering a better offering to our clients, as it will connect both our corporate and partner offices like never before,” Mr Roberts said.
“Knight Frank Australia will have a true national reach from capital cities to regional areas. Scott’s business acumen and focus on building high-performance collaborative teams for growth has seen him lead our teams at Knight Frank with great success.”
Mr Timbrell said he was looking forward to moving back into the role of national head of investment sales and would approach it from a fresh angle after a short hiatus.“
“Being across these two roles will enable me to create a better synergy between all of Knight Frank’s offices, which will ultimately benefit our clients and in turn, the Knight Frank business,” he said.
“Across the board around Australia we are seeing greater confidence in the commercial property market, with buyers ready to act on quality investment opportunities.
“We know that activity will only strengthen as we head further towards the end of the year and with light at the end of the tunnel for COVID restrictions in NSW, it is set to be a strong finish to 2021.”
