Shaking It Up
June 25, 2020
There’s a shake up under way at the top of Sentinel Property Group.
The Brisbane-based outfit revealed on Wednesday that founding CEO and managing director Warren Ebert will pivot to become group executive chairman and take on the newly-created role of chief investment officer starting July 1.
Stepping into his shoes will be Stacey Jones, who now serves as chief operating officer. No replacement has yet been named for her role.
The current long-serving chairman, Steve Eager, has been eased aside but will still head up an advisory board.
Launched during the last downturn 10 years ago, Sentinel has grown to manage investment funds valued at more than $1 billion.
Ebert said he was keen to step back from day-to-day matters and predicted the company would take full advantage of the COVID-19 hit on retail and commercial property values.
“We’re fortunate,’’ he told us. “We’ve got another chance to double in size. We’re getting ready for the next great wave.”
