Retail specialists Mainbrace Constructions has announced that former Head of Retail at Mirvac, Susan MacDonald, has agreed to assist the Mainbrace Board as a Strategic Advisor.

MacDonald was most recently the Head of Retail for Mirvac, where she spearheaded one of the country’s most innovative and successful large-scale retail businesses.

She has also held leadership roles with Lendlease and AMP Capital Shopping Centres, and has served as Joint Deputy Chair of the Shopping Centre Council of Australia (SCCA) for a number of years.

To be able to draw on this experience will help underpin Mainbrace’s retail focus, says Managing Director Rob Doust, as the company seeks to grow its national pipeline.

“As a retail real estate professional, Susan’s experience is industry-leading, and to be able to tap into the expertise and knowledge of someone of her retail standing and reputation is a major advantage for us and our clients,” Doust says.

“The Mainbrace point of difference is to work with our clients from the early design stage, drawing on our retail expertise to plan and undertake construction projects in the most time and cost-efficient way. We deliver high-quality outcomes safely, allowing clients to trade throughout works”, he said.
