Johnstone takes the baton from Knight Frank’s Matthew Page, who retires from the role after three years and a number of significant member wins. Page’s valuable leadership will continue on Division Council is his new role as Immediate Past President.
Tim Johnstone was elected to Division Council in 2007. Since then he has served on the Events and Membership Committee driving remarkable membership growth across the State, as well as, serving as Junior and then Senior Vice President and assisting the President and Division Council increase the reach of the Property Council.
Joining the new President and Vice President Tony Park (Park Homes) is residential developer Sam Hogg (Porky and Co) and 2010 Tasmanian Future Leader.
It is the first time in the Tasmanian Division’s history that a Vice President is from the North of the State and it shows the state wide strength of the Division. It is also a reflection by the Division Council’s belief that Hoggs’ hard work growing the Property Council’s profile and the membership in the North and North West of the State as well as being an active member of the Residential Development Committee will hold the Division in good stead.
The Division Council wishes to thank Matthew Page for the commitment and passion he has given to the Property Council in the role of President. Under Page’s leadership and vision, the Property Council has cemented its place as the leading industry voice for Tasmania’s biggest private sector industry.
