Former Vodafone national property manager Ross Blackmore will swap from managing property as a tenant to being the landlord in his new role as general manager of listed property investor Property For Industry.

Mr Blackmore has taken over the reins from Peter Alexander who is moving to a new role with AMP.

Mr Blackmore said he was looking forward to "being on the other side of the fence" ­ he managed Vodafone's property duties as tenant.

Mr Blackmore cut his teeth on the industrial market while working as Mainzeal's development manager from 1996-98. He then worked for developer Greg Wilkinson's Axis Properties where he was involved in marketing, leasing and developing projects.

Mr Alexander, who will remain at PFI to help Mr Blackmore for the next three to four weeks, will head AMP's new property investment unit targeting high-return investments.

Vodafone has elected not to find a new national property manager and the role will instead be absorbed by separate departments.

Mr Blackmore is a registered valuer, a member of the Institute of Valuers, the Property Institute and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
