As Managing Director of Netrent Commercial, Mike has had considerable experience in property and finance over his career. Starting out as a career banker with ANZ Group he was seconded to the Papua New Guinea Development Bank before returning to head up Dealer Development for ESANDA operations in Queensland.
An opportunity to further his career in property and finance came when he was appointed as Marketing Manager for Queensland Trustees Ltd. He repositioned this company under the Perpetual Trustees Australia Ltd banner and became their Assistant General Manager Client Services and Chairman of their Property & Investment Committees.
His interests in property increased following his family company purchase of several residential and commercial properties in Inner Brisbane. During this time he contracted to several companies positioning their start-up operations and marketing.
An interest in property management at the higher end of the market led him to a role as Commercial Property Manager for a boutique suburban commercial agency. With an excellent referral base from his fellow commercial agents he tripled the size of the properties under management in 2 years whilst maintaining leasing and sales activity within the portfolio.
Netrent Commercial acquired control of the property management business following the sale of the commercial business in 2004 and as a result of continued growth the business moved to company owned premises at Argyle Place in Albion at the convergence of the ICB and Clem7 for ease of access to all suburbs.
Mike has an excellent knowledge of the Brisbane property market and is keen to see Netrent Commercial as one of the better players in the commercial real estate sales, leasing and property management markets.
On a personal note, Mike enjoys spending his spare time at his farm at Mt. Mee which he envisions to be his abode some time in the future.
