New CEO Appointment For Savills Australia & New Zealand

Leading global real estate service provider Savills plc has undertaken a regional review of its Asia Pacific management structure, including succession planning, with a view to strengthening and expanding the executive management platform.

Consequently, effective 4 April 2016, Paul Craig, currently Managing Director for Western Australia, will be appointed Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Australia & New Zealand, which is currently held by Paul McLean. Paul McLean will retain his responsibilities for Queensland and New Zealand, and will devote his energies to growing our presence in these important markets, in accordance with our strategic aims.

Commenting on these executive appointments, Robert McKellar, CEO Savills Asia Pacific said, “The business under Paul McLean's leadership has trebled in size in Australia and New Zealand. It has been a period of continuous growth, expansion, and improved profitability, and Savills is indebted to his hard work, vision, loyalty and leadership during this time. His renewed focus on Queensland and New Zealand will enable us to expedite our growth plans, and achieve greater success in these markets.

“Paul Craig has over the past 15 years built a very successful West Australian business and has been a major contributor to our Capital Markets capability both domestically and internationally, having held the position as Head of Australian Cross Border Capital Markets for the past 8 years. Paul will bring renewed energy and vigour to the role and will continue to build on the successes of the recently expanded Executive Management team. I am confident that under his leadership, Savills across Australasia will continue to exceed our expectations and goals.”
