CEO’s update – May

With over a third of the year already behind us, 2013 is shaping up to be a fascinating period for the Australian property industry.

At MacroPlan we relish the positive shift in the market, particularly with the preparation of major new metropolitan and regional strategies as well as the launch of major city defining projects.  We have been specifically involved in both the Melbourne and Sydney metropolitan strategies and have now taken a lead role engaging with clients who are looking to optimise their business prospects in line with the strategic vision of the city.  Recent MacroPlan projects have been incredibly diverse across the states and sectors with many of our clients now focused on our market insights for the future development of cities and regions over the next 5 to 10 years.

MacroPlan has enjoyed solid growth across the company over the past two years, with an increased focus on cultivating a company culture where the attention is centred on developing the unique talents and skills of our dedicated economists, planners and spatial analysts.  The result of investing in our staff has meant that MacroPlan Dimasi can take on challenging research briefs and provide our clients with timely and innovative solutions.

Our efforts have been recognised nationally as our clients receive major industry awards for projects we initially consulted on.  Our team are more committed than ever to deliver successful commercial outcomes for our clients through an evidence based approach.

My focus as we move toward June 30, is to harness the momentum and energy of the MacroPlan team in conjunction with the positive vibe in the market to develop a National Strategic Plan to meet the needs of our staff and clients over the next 5 years.

It is a great privilege to lead this company and there are plenty of positive signs indicating that we’re in for a cracking 2013/14 financial year!

On behalf of the MacroPlan team, I thank you for your continued support.

Michael Tilt CEO
