Institute elects new board of directors

The Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) has elected its new board of directors, who will take office from 1 January 2014.

Existing directors Jonathan Blocksidge of Blocksidge & Ferguson Limited, Paul Curtain of Place Estate Agents, Deborah Duffy of Taylor Jones Property in Cairns, and Robert Honeycombe of Bees Nees City Realty in South Brisbane were all re-elected for another two-year term.

REIQ chairman Pamela Bennett said the return of all of the existing directors who had re-nominated for the board was a reflection that the institute was heading in the right direction.

‘‘Over the past two years, the REIQ has been focused on modernisation and transformation, which has included the successful relaunch of reiq.com and a number of other new products and services for our members,’’ she said.

‘‘The board of directors has made some courageous decisions over that time period, so I am very pleased that our membership has voted to retain all of the directors who stood for re-election.’’

After 14 years on the REIQ board of directors - including more than four years as its chairman and 18 months as the president of the Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) - Ms Bennett opted to stand down to allow a renewal process to take place. The new chairman will be elected next month.

RE/MAX Australia managing director Michael Davoren, who was also a former president of the institute, also stood down to concentrate on his business interests in Australia and New Zealand.

The REIQ board welcomes two new directors with the election of two former presidents of the institute; Ray Milton and Mark Brimble will rejoin the institute’s board of directors from 2014.
