- Mirvac's Paige Walker has been elected WA President of the Property Council
- Ms Walker takes over from immediate past president Scott Nugent
- The new President has previously served as Vice President and in various advisory committees and working groups
The Property Council WA officially installed the new president at an event last night.
Mirvac General Manager for Residential Development WA, Paige Walker, was elected for a two-year term, taking over from AMP Capital’s Scott Nugent.
Ms Walker previously served for four years as Property Council’s WA Vice President, among other duties in advisory committees and working groups.
Responsible for defining projects including Claremont by Mirvac, Latitude Leighton Beach and the Peninsula Burswood, the new President said in a statement, property is key to an economically sustainable WA:
“The property industry is vital to ensuring that economic diversity and stability categorise the next term of economic activity.”
It was said at last nights event, immediate past president, Scott Nugent, thought he had an easy term with no elections in sight.
The pandemic proved otherwise, Ms Walker said Mr Nugent served admirably:
“Scott Nugent’s term as President during the COVID-19 crisis in 2020 meant he faced enormous challenges in developing the industry’s response to government initiatives”
There is considerable optimism in the industry, with many companies in the property sector posting healthy half-yearly figures despite the buffeting of COVID; The Property Tribune wishes Ms Walker well with her presidency.
