This month, Shane Nicholson will be joining Commercial Collective as their National Director. He will be heading up the newly formed Health, Aged Care and Retirement division.
Commercial Collective are looking forward to being able to give their clients a broader and more in-depth experience, using the extensive knowledge Shane will bring to the Hunter region.
Shane has spent over eleven years advising and transacting in the niche health, aged care and retirement sectors for two global real estate firms.
He has maintained an exemplary reputation, as well as continuing to consolidate his relevance with the retirement and healthcare sectors’ industry leaders and key decision makers.
Shane has facilitated and advised on transactions and divestments of both business and property in the health care sector, and specialises in the divestment and advisory of aged care facilities, retirement villages, private hospitals, over 50’s manufactured home estates, and seniors housing on behalf of Clubs on Club land.
He has facilitated more than $1.2 billion in health care assets throughout his career; on behalf of major ASX listed companies, not-for-profit operators, high net worth individuals, and importantly ‘Mum & Dad’ investors on a local and national basis.
Partner and General Manager of Commercial Collective, Dane Crawford, said that Shane will bring industry knowledge that is paramount to Commercial Collective’s growth.
“Shane brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from his previous roles within two of the largest Commercial Real Estate businesses in the world,” Dane said.
Shane has had key involvement in the advisory and transaction of multiple portfolio divestments, both in aged care and retirement living businesses nationally.
Dane said that Shane’s appointment is the company’s way of filling a noticeable gap in the market.
“The appointment of Shane is part of our overall strategy to specialise in significant markets that are underserviced,” Dane said.
“The Health, Aged Care & Retirement sector is an expanding market and we identified a gap in professional advice and services being offered within the region. This decision is one that will not only benefit our business, but also the entire sector.
“We believe this decision places us in a strong position to specialise in a niche market that only a few operators in the nation uniquely understand. In a very short space of time, Shane has already proved his calibre by negotiating several deals worth more than $50 million,” he continued.
Shane will be working out of Sydney and Newcastle to provide national reach, and has aligned himself with other retirement and healthcare industry specialists to provide a full-service offering.
