CBRE's Alistair Laycock is Australia's Property Professional of the Year
| 2 June 2017
CBRE’s South Australian Managing Director Alistair Laycock has been named the Australian Property Professional of the Year at the annual RICS Oceania Commercial Property Awards.
The prestigious Property Professional of the Year award is presented to an outstanding individual who embodies excellence and represents the highest professional ethics.
Mr Laycock assumed his South Australian MD role in 2015 after 12 years with CBRE. Since that time, he has overseen considerable growth in CBRE’s Adelaide business by promoting a collaborative, high performing business culture.
Ray Pittman, CBRE Pacific President & CEO, said the award was fitting recognition for Mr Laycock’s achievements as both leader of CBRE’s Adelaide business and as an integral member of CBRE’s Australian Capital Markets team.
“We are so proud of Alistair and all that he has accomplished,” Mr Pittman said.
“He is an amazing representative and ambassador for CBRE and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank his for his many contributions to our business. Alistair is also a passionate advocate for diversity, champions a range of philanthropic causes and is committed to promoting sustainability initiatives to drive better business outcomes.”
Mr Laycock has over 20 years’ experience in the Adelaide commercial real estate market and presently leads a team of 95 property professionals in addition to his Capital Markets role.
His recent achievements include championing the creation of CBRE’s Adelaide Women’s Network, to help support and encourage diversity initiatives.
Mr Laycock’s contributions have also extended beyond CBRE and have included participating in the 2016 Vinnies CEO Sleepout to raise awareness of homelessness and joining the Adelaide board of The Starlight Foundation.
Mr Laycock is also a board member of Renew Adelaide – a not-for-profit organisation working with building owners and entrepreneurs to provide start-up businesses with a low-cost entry into retail and office space in the CBD and Port Adelaide.
RICS is the world's leading professional body for qualifications and standards in land, property and construction, with circa 180,000 qualified members.
