Established in 1972, Mirvac has more than 40 years experience in the real estate industry. Mirvac is a leading, diversified Australian property group, with an integrated development and asset management capability. Mirvac’s integrated approach gives the Group a competitive advantage in the creation of quality assets across the entire lifecycle of a project; from planning through to design, construction and development, leasing, property management and long-term ownership.
Mirvac was looking to appoint a Chief Digital Officer to formulate and lead the implementation of a new digital vision for the business, encompassing operations, strategy, technology, innovation, culture, structure and capability across the Group.
The CDO was a newly-created role, and previous digital positions had not been included within the Executive Leadership Team. Reporting directly to the CEO, Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz, the new role would own the transformation of Mirvac’s digital and technology capability, with remit to maximise the performance and financial returns of the business and the projects it delivers.
The successful candidate would be a proven technology leader with business acumen, and a track record in leading digital transformation in a mature and complex business environment. They would be adept at change management, and at navigating complex internal stakeholder environments. Culturally the successful candidate would be highly consultative and demonstrate a collaborative and open leadership style.
As part of our long-term engagement with Mirvac, in addition to conducting a global, extensive search for the candidate, the team at MitchelLake also conducted a comprehensive technology scan of the business.
