LENDLEASE has appointed property and development veteran and former Mirvac CEO Nicholas Collishaw as an independent non-executive director.
The former Mirvac CEO Collishaw will take up the post from the beginning of December. Based in Sydney, he has more than 40 years’ expertise, during which he has overseen the development and delivery of a number of significant projects across the commercial, industrial and retail sectors.
He is currently the joint chief executive officer of Lincoln Place Pty Ltd, a boutique funds management entity focussed on affordable retirement accommodation, and is chairman of ASX-listed hospitality group, Redcape Hotel Group.
Until his recent retirement, he was a non-executive director of ASX-listed investment manager, Centuria Capital.
Collishaw’s executive career has spanned roles including Centuria Capital’s chief executive officer of listed property, and prior to this he spent eight years at Mirvac where he was CEO and managing director from 2008 until his sacking in 2012.
He has also held senior leadership positions at James Fielding Group where he was executive director and head of property, Deutsche Industrial Trust and Paladin Commercial Trust.
“Nick’s appointment is consistent with our focus in recent appointments on identifying non-executive directors with significant skills in our core operating segments to complement the existing composition of the board,” Lendlease chairman Michael Ullmer said.
