New Australian president for International RE Federation

by Staff Reporter 0 comments

An Australian has been elected as the world president of the International Real Estate Federation (FIABCI).

Robyn Waters was inducted as world president at the FIABCI 65th World Congress held in Luxembourg last week.

Ms Waters is only the third Australian to hold the honoured international position and has created history being the first Australian woman to be elected to the role.

Previous Australian world presidents are Woodrow Weight OBE and John Greig OAM.

The Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA), principal member of FIABCI in Australia, said Ms Waters was very deserving of the title.

“Robyn has been a member of the FIABCI Australia Chapter for 37 years,” said REIA president Peter Bushby. “During this time she has served on professional committees, attended 24 FIABCI World Congresses and is a proud recipient of the FIABCI Australia Medal of Honour.

“Robyn is a highly respected real estate practitioner from Melbourne and has been a stalwart of the industry not only through her involvement with the Real Estate Institute of Victoria but as president of the FIABCI Australia Chapter from 2008 until 2012 and as current member of the FIABCI Australia Executive Committee.”

International representation includes serving as a FIABCI board member, president of the FIABCI Membership Committee and in 2011, Ms Waters was elected secretary general of the FIABCI Asian Pacific Committee.

“Robyn knows and understands the organisation and its work and her ability and enthusiasm equip her well for this significant and seriously busy job,” concluded Mr Bushby.
