SYDNEY, 6 FEBRUARY 2020
Frasers Property Australia has appointed Robert Pearce to the role of International Sales Director. Based in the company’s Hong Kong office, Mr Pearce will be responsible for developing new sales channels and relationships with buyers for the company’s Australian projects.
“It is a privilege to be part of the team to deliver the international growth strategy for one of Australia’s leading diversified property groups. Frasers Property has a strong reputation and a proven track record, and my focus will be on working with discerning international buyers to help them find the ideal property to meet their needs,” Mr Pearce says.
Kesree Jones, General Manager – National Sales Programs, Frasers Property Australia says Mr Pearce is a proven leader with considerable international networks and sales and marketing experience.
“Robert has a strong background in international sales and marketing, most recently as Head of International Residential – Middle East and North Africa with Savills based in Dubai. He has been instrumental in the creation and transformation of property sales and marketing teams with transactional experience spanning 23 countries,” Ms Jones says.
“We’re pleased to welcome him to the team.”
Mr Pearce takes over from Edmond Lai, who has managed Frasers Property’s Hong Kong office for the past two decades.
“I was posted to run the Asian showroom office in Hong Kong back in 2000. The original plan was to establish the office, get it up and running, then in two years I would return to Sydney. I never thought I would end up working in Hong Kong for almost 20 years, but I consider myself lucky to have been part of something I really enjoyed with a company with such a great culture,” says Mr Lai.
Moving back to Sydney, Mr Lai will retire to spend time with his wife, two children and grandson.
