New Chairman of CoreNet Sydney chapter to champion the corporate real estate industry

Senior Jones Lang LaSalle executive, Tony Wyllie takes over the Chairman’s role effective 27 September 2013

SYDNEY, 26 SEPTEMBER 2013 – Jones Lang LaSalle’s Australian Head of Integrated Portfolio Services, Tony Wyllie has been appointed Chairman of the Sydney CoreNet chapter.

Mr Wyllie will assume the role from Mark Reynolds, Head of Design & Project Management, Darling Harbour Live, Lend Lease, who has held the position for the past 6 years. Over that time, the CoreNet Sydney chapter has more than doubled its membership base and established itself as the voice of the tenant in the property industry.

Outgoing Chairman, Mr Reynolds said, “It has been a pleasure to guide the Sydney chapter to the position it is today, one that has a diverse membership base, with a strong financial position and has brought more effective representation of tenant and workplace needs.”

The CoreNet Sydney chapter has a membership base of over 130 and holds more than 10 events annually, including the annual Symposium which is the pre-eminent conference for corporate real estate occupiers. It also offers educational opportunities for members to further professional excellence in the industry.

Mr Wyllie said, “I am excited to be assuming the role of Chairman.  I believe we can continue to grow  the CoreNet Sydney chapter into the pre-eminent voice of the tenant in the market.  The high calibre of both international and domestic organisations participating in the Sydney chapter represents a unique professional network to members.

“Particularly given the current market conditions of continued uncertainty, there is a need for corporate occupiers to seek clever solutions to deal with their real estate strategy and give them appropriate flexibility in future.  I see the CoreNet Sydney chapter as having a role to play in this, helping to educate Corporates on how to achieve a real estate strategy that supports their business objectives,” said Mr Wyllie.

CoreNet Global's mission is: “to advance the effectiveness of Corporate Real Estate (CRE) professionals and the entire industry engaged in delivering value to corporations through the strategic management of corporate real estate and workplace resources.” The Sydney chapter has a role to play in bringing together CRE professionals in the local market and championing their needs.
