  • Queensland property council elects a new president
  • Andrew Hay will serve as president for the coming two years
  • Hay's focus will be on reactivating the state's CBD to create long term growth

Andrew Hay will take on his position as president of the Property Council during some of the most challenging times faced by Queensland.

He will be responsible for leading the state’s Property Council for the coming two years.

Hay approaches the role equipped with extensive experience having served four years as the Property Council’s vice president. With a past as a real estate developer, he has been a part of an array of large scale projects from regional shopping centres to commercial headquarters.

While there are high stakes for the property sector in the coming years Hay says there are also significant opportunities.

“It appears that Queensland has emerged from the last year better than could have been anticipated and the key now is capturing that momentum and ensuring all the industry’s hard work is rewarded.”

“At the forefront of our agenda will be reactivating our CBD, to ensure our greatest social and economic asset does not become a long term drag that could jeopardise our recovery.”

In Queensland, one in six people draw a wage either directly or indirectly from the property sector meaning the behaviour of the property market will inevitably flow throughout the state.

Hay will take over from AVID Property Queensland General Manager Bruce Harper who admirably lead the council through a challenging two year period.
