March 2013 - Cadigal Announcement

Cadigal Office Leasing (Cadigal) has expanded its business into Sydney's North Shore office market following a merger withthe commercial business of Richardson & Wrench, North Sydney (RWNS). The combined group offers a pure and uninterrupted focus on office leasing with highly successful and experienced senior leasing teams being active in both locations.

Effective as of 2nd April, 2013 all staff and ongoing commercial business of RWNS shall be transferred to the new office of Cadigal Office Leasing North Sydney. This office is led by two of the North Shore market's best regarded operators, Craig Dolman and Marcus Pratley, who offer over 30 years of combined experience having been involved in the majority of major North Shore office leasing projects over the past decade. The existing residential and management business of Richardson& Wrench North Sydney is unaffected by the merger.

The combined Cadigal team across both offices employs 14 staff, and is expected to increase further throughout the yearwith several new recruits planned.

Mark Tindale, a Director of Cadigal Office Leasing commented that "we have been working very closely with the RWNS business as alliance partners for some time given the clear synergies and complementary skills that exist between the businesses. The North Shore market, as the second largest office market in NSW and given its proximity to the CBD, is a natural and logical expansion for Cadigal. We are delighted to have the RWNS team joining during an exciting growthphase for our Company".

Craig Dolman, a Director of the RWNS entity said "we are very excited about launching the Cadigal brand on the North Shore and providing our clients with an even greater depth of market knowledge and experience. The Cadigal brand has quickly established itself as one of the leading commercial leasing businesses in the Sydney CBD and we look to expand this across the North Shore. The values and goals of the collective teams will ensure that our clients benefit from shared intellectual capital and systems, increased market knowledge and intelligence and a far greater network of client and tenant relationships – all of which are expected to provide more opportunities to create transactions and deliver strong outcomes".
