Unispace has appointed international industry veteran John Forrest to our team of growing industry leaders.
Commercial Real Estate industry veteran John Forrest has joined us as a board advisor. John has spent the past three decades advising multinational organisations from across the world on their commercial real estate needs.
John’s appointment marks the latest milestone in a transformative period of growth and evolution for our organisation following the strategic acquisition by multinational private equity firm PAG in February.
Steve Quick, Global CEO explains, “We’re making huge strides forward, appointing the best minds in the business to support our next phase of maturity and accelerated growth across tier one and emerging markets. Having bolstered our leadership team with Chief Revenue Officer Michael Casolo, and Chief Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Officer Chely Wright, and now an internationally recognised industry figure in John Forrest, we are well-positioned to meet the needs of our clients’ business transformation goals in a post-Covid work environment.”
Well-known in global real estate circles as a highly experienced business leader and industry trailblazer, John had a 27-year career with JLL. During his tenure, he led commercial real estate service businesses serving Fortune 500 companies, and served as Global Corporate Solutions CEO, which charged him with oversight of the business in 80 countries with 35,00 employees. John, Steve and Michael Casolo (CRO) are all former CoreNet Global Board Directors.
John was attracted to Unispace by our progressive approach to workplace creation, decade of strong organic growth and the chance to augment our ‘Think Create Make’ capabilities with his extensive expertise.
He notes that, “Corporate real estate is deep in my DNA, so when Unispace called there was natural alignment. The company brings a unique consultative approach and global perspective to the industry. At this professional juncture, I am excited to bring my global corporate real estate experience to a progressive and client-centric company like Unispace.”
John joins Unispace as board advisor while continuing in senior advisory roles at GreenPoint Partners and SixJay Capital, with prior executive and board level roles at JLL, CoreNet Global and Corrigo. We’re thrilled to have him on board.
