Knight Frank has announced several new appointments within its Western Sydney and South Sydney branches, in addition to the relocation of Knight Frank Sydney South West to a larger office. The changes reflect the growing demand for commercial and industrial property within the region due to new developments and infrastructure, such as Badgery’s Creek and WestConnex.
John Swanson, previously Associate Director, Industrial, Western Sydney, has also been internally promoted to Head of Industrial, Western Sydney.
Knight Frank’s Director, Industrial, Peta Antoniou has relocated from South Sydney to Western Sydney to help lead the team amidst growing demand.
“We’re thrilled with the new appointments which will support the burgeoning South Sydney and Western Sydney teams.
“John Swanson has been a rising star in the business and his appointment to Head of Industrial reflects his growing stature in the Western Sydney market. With demand for industrial space in Western Sydney skyrocketing, John’s wealth of experience will be invaluable to the team.”
Knight Frank’s Partner, Head of Industrial, NSW Matthew Lee said the appointments were a strategic move to bolster the teams during peak growth.
“In the midst of Western Sydney’s rapid growth, we need the best people at the helm. The decision for us to relocate Peta to Western Sydney and to appoint John as Head of Industrial was a strategic one. Together, they’ll help lead the team through this period of expansion and ensure we continue to deliver the best service to our clients.”
In addition to the recent appointments, Knight Frank Sydney South West has also recently expanded, moving into a larger office on Northumberland Street, upgrading from 77sqm to 147sqm of prime office space. Knight Frank Sydney South West will soon begin recruitment as it looks to add an additional three agents to the team.
Mr Horne said, “We’re excited about the renewed focus on South Western Sydney, a prominent area in the industrial sector right now. Demand for industrial property in South West Sydney has increased significantly, and with the development of Badgerys Creek Airport and record population growth in the area we’re only going to see activity continue.”
