Mr Moore comes to Geon with 21 years’ experience in property operations, overseeing 11,000 dwellings across 23 projects in BTR and student accommodation both in the United Kingdom and Australia.
Geon is responsible for some of Queensland’s most iconic developments including Teneriffe’s Australian Estate Woolstores, and is behind the planned $750 million Albion Exchange retail, commercial and residential hub.
Geon Living will continue to drive the brand’s growth as it injects its unique approach and operational expertise by partnering with investors to launch their projects or managing their existing portfolios.
Geon Chief Executive Officer Ben Griffin said Geon Living provided synergies with the broader business, complementing its established services in property management, leasing and funds management, and expertise in property development.
He said Geon would leverage Mr Moore’s extensive experience to provide end-to-end management services for investors.
“Geon has always focused on shaping greater outcomes for people and place,” he said.
“Geon Living will follow this ethos as it partners with investors, from design through to the delivery of exceptional operational strategies and community-centred management to maximise returns now, and in the long term.
“For almost two decades, Geon has been committed to creating valued spaces that enhance the lives of those who visit and reside in them.
“We achieve this by following our foundations of due diligence, research, masterful design and community to deliver world-class projects and economic success.”
Mr Griffin said as property managers, Geon Living would provide a full suite of services from efficient and automated administration and reporting tactics to service model and leasing journey design as well as sustainable utility solutions through local energy networks.
“These services are complemented by a purposeful community engagement program to give residents a sense of community pride and a feeling of being ‘home’,” he said.
“Investors can rest-assured their project is in safe hands with Geon Living and Dan at the helm, backed by Geon’s proven track record.”
Mr Moore brings a wealth of experience in property management systems, integrations, compliance delivery and facility, asset and community management.
As a technology expert, he has extensive skills in information and communication technology (ICT) design, mobilisation and integration and has developed and delivered Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) and BTR OpCo service models, resident apps and local energy networks, to name a few.
Mr Moore said Geon Living would provide quality, authentic, lateral and collaborative operational expertise to clients looking to boost investment returns.
He said BTR was an exciting sector that could have widespread benefits for all stakeholders under the right management.
“The BTR market is growing at speed, but we are yet to see the long-term outcomes of this model in Australia and I believe that will hinge on projects offering more diversity of building amenity, which in turn allows for more variety of management and service models being deployed,” he said.
“This will play a crucial role in moving BTR away from being positioned for only the premium end of the rental market.
“A key ingredient for the success of any BTR asset is in providing a sense of home and community through design and management outcomes.
“Each project lives and breathes differently so spending the time to understand the community in which it belongs and the land on which it is built is a really important step in achieving success.
“At Geon Living, our focus is not just creating places to live, but vibrant and inclusive neighbourhoods that foster a sense of belonging.
“We do this through focusing on reliable systems, process and policy, sustainable and functional design, and community engagement that elevates the rental living experience to create homes that are loved by residents and exceed performance for investors.”
