Simon has more than 30 years of experience in Australia and the UK. He specialises in strategic and economic reviews, market analysis and property research, especially in relation to major shopping centres, city centres and new market trends.
Simon’s clients – including Westfield, Lend Lease, Blackstone and Westpac – benefit from his deep understanding of property projects, the keys to success and causes of failures, how to spot opportunities and how to avoid pitfalls.
Drawing on his local and overseas experience, Simon has delivered forecasts on market trading potential for many of Australia’s largest shopping centres. He has also identified development opportunities based on reviews of the commercial office, internet retailing, cinema and leisure markets in Australia, New Zealand and the UK. As well as his project work, Simon has appeared as an expert witness in legal cases relating to planning and development in Australia and the UK.
