Charter Hall Office CEO, Carmel Hourigan said, “In the current operating environment, creating resilient workplaces that can respond to evolving operational, human and technology challenges is a priority for Charter Hall. Tica is a respected industry thought leader in this field, shaping future-ready and strategic workplace environments for a number of Australia’s leading organisations.
“Her background in social sciences and corporate real estate knowledge strategically position her to unlock new insights into innovative workplace strategies and enhance the workplace experience for our tenant customers.

Ms Hessing said, “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with Cushman & Wakefield over the past six years, helping major occupiers transition to new ways of working, and I am looking forward to joining Charter Hall’s experienced Office sector team. This is a unique opportunity to leverage my own experience and insights around the future of work across Australia’s largest office portfolio.
“Most recently, in response to COVID-19, my work has focussed on supporting organisations with their Return to Office transition programs, including consulting on new ways of working and redefining future workplace needs. I’m particularly excited to bring this to Charter Hall’s tenant customers – helping to create exceptional workplaces for their organisations and people,” said Ms Hessing.
