Ouwens Casserly appoint new COO

Ouwens Casserly Real Estate has expanded its senior leadership team with the appointment of John Thompson. 

Mr Thompson joins OC in the newly created role of Chief Operating Officer (COO), offering strategic support and leadership across all divisions of the business. 

“John has been managing a hugely successful recruitment business that has more than tripled in revenue over his seven-year tenure and joins OC during a year that has already demonstrated just how vital strategic planning and preparation is for any business,” OC’s Managing Director, Nathan Casserly said.

“In this newly created role of COO, John will lead our corporate departments across Marketing, People and Culture, Operations and Finance, ensuring our values of authenticity, optimism, passion and precision continue to feed into everything we do.

“John understands the importance of building a pipeline of work for our consultants. This, along with John’s impressive business acumen and vast skillset will be vital in attracting and retaining SA’s most talented people for the next stage of OC’s growth,” Mr Casserly said.

“John will effectively take over the running of the business day-to-day. Having the support of John will allow both Alex and I to focus solely on growing the business and give us the benefit of time to re-connect with our people and our clients – the parts of the business we are most proud of and so passionate about.”

Having recently completed his MBA at the University of Adelaide, as well as a GAICD with the Australian Institute of Company Directors, Mr Thompson said he was excited about the future at OC. 

“OC is one of Australia’s fastest growing independent property firms and in my short introduction to the business I can see why.

“OC is a business that is built on great people, strong leadership and a commitment to exceeding customer expectations. I am thrilled to be joining OC and look forward to contributing to their ongoing success,” Mr Thompson said.

OC currently has offices located in Adelaide, Kensington, Unley, Willunga, Henley Beach and Kangaroo Island.
