CBRE rustle up veteran cattle pastoralists for its agribusiness team

CBRE has recruited agribusiness veterans Phil Beale and Geoff Warriner amid what the agency sees are signs of a turnaround in Australia’s northern cattle station market.

Mr Beale is the former CFO of AACo, Australia’s largest cattle producer, while Mr Warriner is the former COO of Consolidated Pastoral Company, Australia’s second largest cattle producer.

Danny Thomas, regional director of CBRE Agribusiness, said the appointments put CBRE in a strong position to capitalise on the recovery in Australia’s cattle station market which had suffered as a result of the high Australian dollar, high debt and the Federal Government’s intervention in the live cattle trade and, more recently, drought.

CBRE has rapidly expanded its agribusiness team from a standing start in May last year to more than 30 sales and valuations professionals around the country.

Mr Beale and Mr Warriner bring a combined 45 years of agribusiness experience to the team.
