New regional representation for commercial property body

MEDIA RELEASE

28.11.2012

New regional representation for commercial property body

Property Council New Zealand has refreshed its regional leadership teams across the country. This month, executive committees in Auckland and the South Island elected new branch presidents who will represent member interests at a local level.

The organisation can confirm Miles Brown, head of transactions at Kiwi Income Property Trust is now Property Council’s Auckland branch president, and Glenn Taylor, general manager of privately owned Christchurch-based Tailorspace Investments is Property Council’s South Island branch president.

Mr Brown will bring to the position strong leadership capabilities, negotiation skills, strategic planning and business development expertise. He took up this role as he understands the property sector has an impact on every New Zealander and believes “it is important for our country to have a healthy sector which facilitates investment in the commercial sector and the development of residential property”. Succeeding Graeme Birkhead from Arrow International, who held the position for the last two and a half years, Mr Brown’s focus will be on Auckland governance issues.

Mr Taylor’s background is in project management, property investment and development, and he will bring to the position understanding on rebuild issues and investment opportunities for the region. He takes over from Graeme McDonald from Jones Lang LaSalle, president of the South Island branch for the last four years.

A longstanding member of the executive, Mr Taylor said he is “looking forward to taking on the role of president and supporting the regional industry in this exciting and challenging climate” and is already planning his priorities for next year.

Branch presidents volunteer their time and industry expertise and are highly valued by the organisation. They automatically receive a seat on the National Council, the governing body which influences organisational decisions on national matters.

Property Council’s chief executive Connal Townsend said the organisation was fortunate to have two new leaders on board who are already heavily involed in branch issues, and he wishes to thank the outgoing branch presidents for their lasting commitment during a tough environment.

Although the incoming presidents were elected unopposed, nominations for positions on the branch executives across the country have reached levels not seen for years, with voting required to select candidates to represent the regions.

Presidents from other regions were all recently re-elected by their executive committees and will remain in their positions for another year. This includes Robert Dol from Greenstone Group in

Waikato, Jeff Fletcher from Ford Land Projects in the Bay of Plenty and Ian Cassels from The Wellington Company in Wellington.
