A message from our outgoing Chapter Chair

The past two years, it has been an absolute honour and privilege to serve as chapter chair of CoreNet Global Australia. We’ve achieved so much, and I’d like to take this chance to express my gratitude for everyone who has worked tirelessly towards this success.

Firstly, to our business partners, who have offered generous support through various sponsorships. The trust you place in us means we can advance the practice of corporate real estate in Australia and offer more to our members. The quality of events we’re able to offer with this financial support has led to us repeatedly topping the region with outstanding membership engagement results.

The energy, drive and dedication of our executive and committee members has also been phenomenal. The willingness of our team to collaborate and challenge each other to be better is at the foundation of our shared success. 

Despite the lingering effects of the pandemic, we’ve been able to achieve remarkable results over the past two years, including global recognition as Chapter of the Year. We’ve also celebrated two consecutive years of the CoreNet Global Young Leader of the Year winner being from Australia, with Tica Masuka in 2021 and Tori Sheppard in 2022, not to mention also having finalists for CoreNet Global Corporate Real Estate Executive of the Year both years, with Doug Hall in 2021 and Tarah Spencer in 2022. The depth of talent in our community is just amazing.

The Australian chapter is amongst the best in the world, and I couldn’t have asked for a better member base to serve. Together we’ve been able to grow our community, including 25 new MCR graduates. The creativity, innovation, professionalism and excellence demonstrated in our industry here in Australia leaves me in awe.

When I started as chapter chair, my goal was to inspire the next generation to come forward and to think creatively as we continue to advance the practice of corporate real estate in this country. I think we’ve done that and more, with the future of corporate real estate in Australia is looking stronger than ever.

I’d like to offer my congratulations to incoming chair, Leah Ong, who will serve CoreNet Global Australia for 2023 and 2024. Leah has championed our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives in Australia, as well as representing us as our ID&E ambassador globally. As an end-user, Leah brings a new perspective to the leadership seat which I know will expand our thinking and further our ability to make a difference in meaningful ways. I look forward to seeing what Leah and her team do, cheering them on as they continue to kick goals and elevate this association to achieve even more.
