ASX listed national real estate company The Agency Group (ASX: AU1) was in the news last month for a few reasons, but is moving ahead with a new national commercial division.

Former CEO of Ray White Commercial, Mark Williams, will join the leadership team to grow the commercial business.

The new arm of the business will focus on delivering a full-service offering across the commercial office, retail and industrial sector.

“I have always been passionate about commercial real estate, but it is an extremely specialised service, and while we currently offer some commercial services within Sydney, the demand to provide a far-reaching national service has been significant.”

“This enables us to broaden our reach into the untapped multi-billion-dollar, non-residential markets. We needed to find the right commercial leadership team and I am thrilled Mark Williams, the former CEO of Ray White Commercial and Director of Greater China and Asia for Ray White has joined the team.”

Mark Williams brings more than 30 years of real estate experience to his commercial role with The Agency. As the CEO and founder of Ray White’s commercial division, he built a network of over 50 commercial businesses across Australia, Asia and New Zealand. Further to these achievements, he headed up the Ray White Group’s Asia operations as Director of Greater China and Asia.

The Agency’s Executive Chairman and COO, Andrew Jensen, worked alongside Mark Williams for a number of years when employed as CFO for the Ray White Group.

“I saw what Mark Williams achieved during my time at Ray White, and now to get someone of Mark’s calibre and experience to help drive our expansion, it demonstrates The Agency holds a huge opportunity in the commercial space,” Andrew Jensen said.

“Our model is a unique fit for commercial and industrial real estate and I believe the overall sector does not get enough attention – we want to change that.”
