11 AUGUST 2021

Frasers Property Industrial has announced the appointment of Ian Barter to Executive General Manager, Australia.

Reini Otter, Chief Executive Officer of Frasers Property Industrial comments, “The industrial and logistics sector globally has undergone rapid growth since the strategic business unit was formed in late 2019. With a landbank now of over 2.5 million square metres, the scale of the business with assets under management of over S$4.1 billion and its portfolio 100% occupied made it a priority to appoint an Executive General Manager.
