David and Howard Raines, The Flooring Emporium
We are both extremely satisfied with this outcome and simply put would not have been possible without your partnership. To achieve such an outcome in this economic climate is unprecedented — August 2017
Dr Oliver Greeves, Deputy Chair, Uniting
Arthur served on the board of Uniting from 2011-2017. During that time, Uniting, a Not for Profit organisation with over eight thousand staff and fifteen thousand clients of multiple services including Aged Care, Retirement Villages, Community Care, Hospital Care, and services for Children, Young People and Families, underwent a major transition. Every part of the enterprise was affected.
One very important change led by Arthur was a complete restructure of the property organisation. There was a natural reluctance to engage with the changing needs of the business especially as the restructure would affect so many people. However Arthur persuaded the board to provide the money to engage consultants and then kept a firm grip over their work so as to produce a change of lasting benefit to Uniting.
Arthur was tireless in his pursuit of excellence and showed commendable restraint and leadership. — July 2017

Michael Dwyer – Executive Chairman of Oxley Capital in Singapore
“We worked with Arthur on the acquisition of the Cambridge Industrial Trust when he led the Nab real estate team in Asia. This was the first M&A acquisition in the Singapore REIT market and Arthur was instrumental in arranging the debt for the first stage of the acquisition of the manager. This first stage allowed NabInvest to become a strategic partner for our group. Arthur was also able to assist us in retaining Mitsui as a partner in the REIT manager. As a result we today have a very large Japanese investor base in the REIT.
We found Arthur to be focused on running a commercial and entrepreneurial operation which provided fast and valuable service. Arthur’s connections across the SE Asian region are excellent and he is well positioned to introduce capital sources from multiple channels including banks, institutional and private investors. We recommend Arthur to any emerging corporate seeking realistic and effective advice as they seek to enhance their strategies and source capital to grow their business”
