Queensland property services group Coronis has made a strategic internal promotion as part of their 2020 growth strategy to open 40 offices.
Managing Director Andrew Coronis has announced Adam Empringham will step into the Sales Director role in July 2018, following 11 years of service with the company, six as an Area Leader managing 10 offices.
“I would like to congratulate Adam on his promotion, he has been an integral part of our leadership team and instrumental in helping our business consistently achieve year-on-year growth,” Mr Coronis said.
“I have watched him create a wonderful team culture in his offices over the years and nurture many inexperienced agents into elite performers, which is why I believe he will thrive in this new role.
“Adam is the perfect example of the career progression opportunities available at Coronis, he came across from another agency and has worked his way up to Sales Director, which is what this business is about.
“We have achieved a lot in the past 34 years but I’m excited to see the next generation of leaders step up, take control and open our next 13 offices by 2020.”
After 16 years as Coronis’ Sales Director, Craig Gillies will transition into a new role, Head of Growth, where he will focus on expanding the sales team and diversifying Coronis’ allied businesses.
“I couldn’t be prouder of Adam and what he has achieved in his career,” Mr Gillies said. “It’s very rewarding to see our team members grow and take the next step in their careers by offering them new opportunities within our business.
“With Adam looking after the sales team, I will now concentrate on finding new talent, mentoring people through our training program and upskilling our existing team to guarantee we hit our 2020 target by doubling our sales team.”
Mr Empringham said it was an honour to accept the Sales Director role and be part of this landmark moment within the company’s history.
“It’s a really dynamic time within our industry and I’m very appreciative to have been entrusted with this opportunity in one of the most progressive companies in real estate,” he said.
“I’m looking forward to working with the entire team of agents to ensure we remain at the forefront of the industry delivering world class customer service and making the whole buying, renting and selling process easier for our clients.
“I have some ambitious goals that I want to achieve in my first 12 months but I am confident that the team and I are more than capable of rising to the challenge.”
Mr Coronis said they would start recruiting immediately to find a replacement Area Leader.
“We’re open to internal and external applications for this role, as I believe it will take a few people to replace Adam’s skillset.
“The Area Leader role within our business is extremely important as they are not only responsible for the sales team in their offices, but also their village’s growth and team culture.”
