The business has almost two decades of experience managing some of the best-known supermarket-based shopping centres throughout Queensland and northern New South Wales.

“I’m delighted to partner with Paul and the Savills Australia and New Zealand senior leadership team as we announce the acquisition today,” said Kneipp, who will take on the role of national director – retail management at Savills.

The team of 14 staff from Site8 will join Savills in Brisbane on Monday 14 August.

“For more than a decade, Site8, under Peter’s management, has had a reputation for being one of Queensland’s best retail management agencies,” said Savills Australia and New Zealand CEO, Paul Craig.
