Ray White Queensland has announced a key leadership change as part of its next phase of growth with a new CEO at the helm from next month.
Jason Andrew has been confirmed as the group’s incoming CEO. He replaces outgoing CEO Tony Warland, who has been with the network for more than 31 years, including the past 12 spent as CEO of Ray White Queensland. Mr Warland will remain as a member of the Queensland board and commence a new role as Queensland North director.
Mr Andrew will take to the top post from mid-October. He has co-led Ray White’s NSW and ACT network with Andrew McCulloch for close to four years and is relocating to Queensland for the position.
“It has been a privilege and a joy to help lead NSW during such an exciting period of growth,” Mr Andrew said. “The highlight has been the emergence of new leadership in the state. I am excited to get home with my family in Brisbane. I am a born and bred Queenslander and always wanted my boys to grow up in the Sunshine State.
“Tony has positioned us remarkably well during his tenure as CEO of over the past 12 years. We are so appreciative of all that he has done for our company and we are incredibly excited to see the impact he will make in his new role.”
Ray White group managing director Dan White said the restructure will position the Queensland group for continued growth.
“[Jason] has been responsible for creating fantastic momentum for us, particularly in Sydney, with a new generation of business leaders now reshaping our network. He has deep relationships throughout Queensland developed over many years after operating his own leading auction and training business and has a strong sense of the drivers of the Queensland agency market,” Mr White said.
“Tony will continue to play a key role within the business. We retain his longstanding institutional knowledge and relationships and he will continue to drive for further growth with us by focusing on the important markets from the Sunshine Coast right to the top of Queensland.
“This is an important region for us and this will allow us to provide deeper support to our members.”
