Richard Butler, the principal of Richard Butler Property Advisors (RBPA), has appeared overnight on stage at a MIPIM presentation in Cannes.

Butler, who heads an independent and specialised Sydney-based property agency, is the only featured Australian at the annual international property conference.

RBPA will be rebadged as a new agency in April 2017 when Richard will be joined by a team of five partners.

Richard joined Richard Ellis in 1989 as Director, city sales. In 1995, he was appointed Director, Asian Marketing (Eastern Seaboard Offices). In this role, he was responsible for coordinating all Asian marketing on behalf of the Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne offices.  In 1998 Richard Ellis was acquired by CB Commercial and was eventually rebadged as CBRE.

Richard was appointed Acting Managing Director of the Sydney office and then established the highly successful International Investments team in the capacity of Senior Managing Director. 

Richard has executed well over AUD $21 billion in transactions in Australia and overseas covering the US, EMEA and Asia.

Butler moderated the MIPIM session, Where are the blue oceans in Asia?, a session that focused on the South East Asian real estate investments.
