CPA Jon Forrest recently joined the Property Management team, bringing with him a wealth of financial experience, including as a financial controller or accountant in hospitality, radio, property development, residential construction and real estate.
Jon’s hospitality portfolio includes some of the state’s largest and most recognisable venues including Treasury Casino, Stamford Plaza Brisbane, Regatta Hotel, Ballistic Beer and the Star Hotels Group.
Jon has a deep understanding of the commercial implications of property management and the strategies required to get the best returns for clients. “Having worked in commercial enterprise, I have a real appreciation of the challenges and requirements of business owners and a unique perspective on the commerciality of a deal or agreement.”
One of the key aspects of Jon’s role is to bring a fresh perspective to the administration of property management, delivering compliance and process efficiencies so the team can focus even more on building and maintaining client relationships.
“The best results are achieved when you get the compliance and legals right as well as deliver a pleasing result for all parties. While our primary role is to support and provide optimal return for the landlord, if the tenant is also happy, it’s a win-win.”
