New Transition Board brings a business-like approach

Earlier this month, the Property Council New Zealand Transition Board was appointed, adopting a more ‘corporate style’ of governance in accordance with our new Constitution that comes into effect on 1 January 2021.

The Transition Board replaces the existing National Council and Executive Committee, streamlining Property Council’s governance structure and allowing a separate Advisory Group (which consists of all Corporate Members and the Chairpeople of each Property Council committee) to concentrate purely on our advocacy priorities and member services, without getting weighed down in operational matters.

Property Council's new governance structure

As Property Council continues to evolve, the Transition Board will lend their considerable expertise to help govern the organisation. The Board has been selected from the existing National Council and will remain in place until members are formally elected onto this board by Property Council’s wider membership in September next year, with the next term starting from 1 November 2021. Nominations will open in July.

The 2021 Transition Board members are:

  • James Riddoch, Greenwood Roche (Regional Chair representative)
  • Steve Gracey, Rider Levett Bucknall (Industry Member)
  • Anna Crosbie, Russell McVeagh (Industry Leader – Construction/Property Professional & Services)
  • Phil Littlewood, Stride Property (Industry Leader – Owner/Developer)
  • Clive Mackenzie, Kiwi Property (Industry Leader – Owner/Developer)
  • Mark Thompson, Auckland Airport (Industry Leader – Owner/Developer)
  • Scott Pritchard, Precinct Properties (Industry Leader – Owner/Developer)

We would like to thank these members for their time as we continue on our journey of transformational change.
