Ed Wright to drive aggressive growth of
RPM’s market position in the infill space

We’re pleased to announce our latest key appointment in Ed Wright who joins RPM from CBRE, where he was head of development site sales.

Ed is one of Melbourne’s most talented transaction professionals and trusted advisors within the development site sales sector. He brings stellar experience across the property investment and development spectrum, including two years as head of CBRE’s development site sales division, managing a team of eight and transacting more than $2.2 billion.

RPM head of Transactions & Advisory, Christian Ranieri, said Ed’s appointment reflects RPM’s emerging status in the transaction space.

“Ed is an intelligent and sharp operator with expertise across multiple asset classes,” Christian said. “He brings a depth of experience in structuring deals of sophistication and scale which, increasingly, is the type of transaction we manage.

“As developers – particularly international clients – diversify their property investments, Ed’s ability to nurture large scale, complex transactions from start to finish is a highly valued capability we’re continuing to build,” he said.

Commenting on his appointment Ed said he was looking forward to aggressively growing RPM’s market position in the infill space.

“There’s so much upside at RPM,” Ed said. “It’s an exciting time to join a business in rapid growth mode. I feel I’ve got a lot to offer in terms of not just brokering the sale of significant assets, but building and nurturing the exciting young talent that RPM has attracted.

“Culturally it’s also a great fit. RPM’s focus on providing outstanding service and strategic advisory to clients is genuinely impressive. Their research is market-leading, and I’m looking forward to optimising this capability to add value to RPM clients.

“The market is definitely changing,” Ed said. “Transactions are getting more sophisticated in terms of deal structures and international capital flows. End buyers are choosier, especially owner occupiers, and developers need to ensure they’ve got capacity and expertise to deliver the right type of product for the marketplace.

“My ability to seek out the best buyers in the market, combined with the knowledge and talent at our disposal, provides an exciting platform to capitalise on the significant opportunities the business is generating.”

Ed has won numerous awards at CBRE including winner of the best development site marketing campaign in 2014 and 2016.
