Ed Atkinson

Chief Operations Officer


Having worked in the advertising industry for over 20 years, Ed Atkinson joined First National Real Estate in 2018, bringing with him the experiences derived from all forms of media and communications with some of the biggest and most recognisable brands in Australia.

With the experience of working as the General Manager of two of the largest independent advertising agencies in Australia, he ensures that First National’s marketing strategies set the benchmark for the real estate industry.
