Asia-Pacific’s first commercial property platform CorporateRealEstate.com has appointed Joe Waller as Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Joe is the former Technology Strategist and Chief-of-Staff of Betfair, the world’s biggest sports trading platform.

It is a move that further demonstrates CorporateRealEstate.com’s commitment to developing a unique purpose-built online platform for the commercial property sector. It’s also the company’s third major senior appointment in three weeks, following the high-profile appointments of two JLL Directors, Tom Barr and Don Mackenzie as Directors.

Joe Waller says that he is excited by the prospect of working with a platform that supercharges how agents and agencies can market and sell, reshaping the way that stakeholders in the commercial property sector connect.

“I’m passionate about how to utilise technology, not just to support and drive businesses, but to transform them and revolutionise their sectors. CorporateRealEstate.com offers so much more than what was previously available. Using their industry knowledge, Adam Flaskas and Grey Rogers have created a platform that connects corporate tenants, tenant representatives and investors to real estate opportunities in a way that’s simply never been done before”, said Waller.

CorporateRealEstate.com Co-Founding Director and property entrepreneur Grey Rogers says the appointment of Joe Waller is paramount for the platform’s expansion into new markets.

“To build an international platform like CorporateRealEstate.com, it was imperative that we hired a CTO who had a proven track record of building a global .com brand. Joe’s depth of expertise is critical to our expansion through Asia-Pacific”, said Rogers.

In his 10-year tenure with Betfair, Joe played a key role in growing the company from a UK technology start-up into the world’s largest Internet betting exchange. With annual revenues of over $700 million, Betfair’s technology matches 30,000 trades a minute – more than all of Europe’s stock-exchanges combined. In 2010, Betfair floated on the London Stock Exchange as Europe’s biggest .com at the time.

Asia-Pacific’s first commercial property platform, CorporateRealEstate.com, has appointed two of Australia’s leading Commercial Property Agents Tom Barr and Don Mackenzie as Directors.

CorporateRealEstate.com is a platform that connects Corporate Tenants, Tenant Representatives, and Investors to real estate opportunities.

Tom and Don join CorporateRealEstate.com from JLL, where they were both Directors of Leasing in Queensland.  Their new roles will see them champion sales and business development encouraging more Agencies and Owners to join as Members of CorporateRealEstate.com.

“It’s an extremely exciting opportunity to be involved in the development of Asia-Pacific’s first property platform that focuses purely on the corporate market,” said Barr. “This platform offers so much more to industry participants than a straight advertising portal does, and the response to CorporateRealEstate.com has been extremely positive. Don and I have been brought on to secure strong win-win relationships with Agencies, Owners, and Tenant Representatives both here in Australia and throughout Asia Pacific.

“It’s the value that CorporateRealEstate.com’s memberships offer, which Owners and Agencies have responded so well to,” said Mackenzie. “Our Corporate Gold Owner Membership Package allows large institutional and private Owners to list their entire property portfolio for one annual fee.”

With a combined experience of over 20 years in the property industry, Tom and Don bring a wealth of industry experience and a strong network of relationships that will help further cement CorporateRealEstate.com’s niche position in the market.

CorporateRealEstate.com Co-Founding Director and property entrepreneur Adam Flaskas says the appointment of Tom and Don is evidence of strong commitment to building Asia-Pacifc’s most exclusive corporate property platform.

“Tom and Don have been instrumental in negotiating some of the largest office leasing transactions in the Brisbane market. They bring a unique skillset and have strong relationships with many of the major Owners, Tenant Representatives, and Agencies nationally which will be instrumental to our business development,” said Flaskas.

Since launching in March, CorporateRealEstate.com has already signed a number of Australia’s leading owners as Corporate Gold Members. These owners include the likes of Dexus, Brookfield, Charter Hall, GPT, Investa and Leighton Properties to name a few. CorporateRealEstate.com’s Owner members have a combined property portfolio value of over $90 Billion which has attracted interest from Blue-chip Fortune 500 companies across Asia-Pacific.
