After 19 years in commercial real estate in Australia and Korea, Darren Krakowiak founded CRE Success to help people working in commercial real estate (CRE) achieve success more quickly and to facilitate leadership development in the sector.
Darren has a broad and deep understanding of the industry acquired from a variety of leadership roles, including Managing Director and Country Representative at CBRE Korea and numerous department head roles at JLL in Australia and Korea.
In his capacity as a mentor to others in the industry (including as a Mentor in the Property Council of Australia’s 2020 Mentoring Program) and by creating content to reach people beyond his immediate network (on LinkedIn and through CRE Success: The Podcast), Darren has a passion for helping others reach their full potential.
CRE Success has been established as a leading provider of business, career and leadership coaching for CRE professionals across Asia Pacific, sharing relevant and actionable insights into the industry drawn from the lived experience of Darren and his extensive network.
CRE Success consults to companies on business strategy, customer experience, growth plan execution and human capital.
The company also supports people undertaking career transitions, including outplacement services and help for applicants to secure their next job.
CRE professionals need to be the driver of their own careers, and CRE Success has a platform to fast-track that development. Using a range of relevant frameworks and drawing on his own acquired knowledge, Darren is committed to empowering industry professionals to realise their potential, take responsibility for their performance, and manage professional successes and setbacks.
