In strengthening the firm's connections with the Australian property and construction industry, Woods Bagot proudly announces the following 13 appointments to the Property Council of Australia's (PCA) committees for 2019. The PCA’s state-based committees help shape the industry’s future by working on policy and advocacy, events, industry research, professional development, and awards programs.
The New South Wales chapter will include Amanda Stanaway, Principal and Regional Leader Workplace Interiors for the Commercial Office Committee and Kate Dikinson, Associate, for its Future Directions Committee, who both work out of the Sydney studio.
“I’m delighted to represent Woods Bagot on the Commercial Committee in NSW. There’s no forum like it to bring an architectural perspective to those of esteemed industry peers and provide input and insight into the state’s commercial development, policy and thought leadership,” Amanda said.
Eight newly inducted representatives hail from the Adelaide studio for the South Australia division. This includes Alex Hall, Associate Principal, for the Residential and Infill Development Committee; Anoop Menon, Senior Associate, for the Retirement Living Committee; Ashley Haren, Global Leader People and Culture, will be on the Diversity Committee; Laura Haywood, Associate, will serve on the Future Directions Committee; Marie Fontanabella, Studio Accountant, on the Taxation Committee; Milos Milutinovic, Senior Associate, for the Future Trends and Innovations Committee; Simon Tothill, Senior Associate, on the Mainstreets and Retail Committee; and Sarah Howden, Senior Associate, for the Planning Committee.
For the Victoria chapter, Bridget Crameri, Business Development Specialist at the Melbourne studio, will be on its Future Directions Committee.
“There are strong synergies between the Future Directions Committee and my role as a committee member of Club WB – Woods Bagot’s young professional group fusing professional development with peer and industry engagement. I’m looking forward to contributing to the PCA’s well-established program that supports the development and growth of the property industry’s emerging leaders,” Bridget said.
And finally, for the Western Australia chapter, Taylor Sambell, Interior Designer, will serve on the Future Directions Committee; and Titi Shahkouei, Associate, will be on the Diversity Committee. Both of them work out of the Perth studio.
