Mirvac is restructuring its executive team to better leverage its integrated model and maximise the expertise of its senior executives.

Mirvac’s CEO and managing director Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz said the shuffle will ensure there’s a more efficient and integrated approach to everything the company does.
