“We have made significant progress in reshaping our portfolio and creating a customer centric business. In particular, as Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Mark has overseen the development of Australia’s leading residential business, reshaped and expanded our workplace and logistics portfolio and significantly repositioned our town centre business. Mark has fostered a strong executive team, made significant advances in building innovation and digital capabilities and solidified Stockland’s position as a diverse employer of choice and global leader in sustainability, said Pockett.

Steinert said, “My immediate priority is driving initiatives to take advantage of the COVID-19 recovery period and further accelerate the digitisation of our business and delivery of our strategic priorities.”

“As confirmed in our recent market updates, Stockland’s strong liquidity position means we are well- placed to deliver on our purpose and identify new opportunities as we meet customer needs through our leading communities and assets across the country”, he said.
