Kevin’s appointment opens up a specialised market for Soben Australasia, his vast experience, excellent reputation and strong client relationships will strengthen Soben’s commercial service offering in the region and allow increased support for valued clients in the Banking and Financier services sector.
Kevin commented on his appointment:
“I’m delighted to be back at Soben. I left my previous role at Soben in the UK to re-locate back to Australia, and I’m excited to be back in the fold. The group is full of top class individuals who combine to offer world class services to clients globally. There are exciting times ahead for sure.”
David Watt, Soben Director Australia and New Zealand said:
“We are very pleased to welcome Kevin to our rapidly growing Soben Australasia team, and to his role as a regional leader and Director of Soben Australia.
Kevin was previously a part of the Soben group and returns to us with enhanced experience and reputation after his time in the property, Government and finance sectors (most recently as a Director of Colliers International), continuing his trajectory as a leader in the QS industry and a well-respected expert in the Banking and Financier services world.
We look forward to supporting Kevin as he builds and develops our capabilities and clientele in this very important sector.”
