After 12 years in his current role, the CEO of the Real Estate Institute of Northern Territory (REINT) is taking on a similar role in a new jurisdiction.

Quentin Kilian has been appointed as the CEO of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) from mid-February 2022 and will take over the reins from outgoing CEO Gil King.

Mr Kilian, who has previously also held Northern Territory government roles, has revealed he is looking forward to moving to Victoria and joining the REIV.

“The effective work of my predecessor, Gil King, and the REIV board, means I will walk into a membership organisation with a firm foundation, strong industry advocacy track-record and solid reputation,” Mr Kilian said. 

“Without a shadow of doubt, Victoria is highly-regarded on the national and international real estate stage. The sector’s hard-working property professionals are doing a tremendous job realising the ambitions of buyers and sellers, investors and renters.

“That said, there is much to do to ensure a better public policy and regulatory framework for all participants in the property industry during ever-changing market conditions and a sometimes complex operating environment. 

“I look forward to engaging all levels of government and listening to other sector stakeholders to see an improved way forward.” 

REIV president Adam Docking has congratulated the new CEO on his appointment to the REIV following a national search.

“We are delighted to have secured someone of Quentin’s calibre for this critical industry leadership role,” he said.

“Throughout his candidacy, it was clear we were talking to an agile advocacy expert who had established great respect and influence in the sector, not only up north, but also nationally.

The president noted that Mr Kilian would work closely with Mr King over the coming months to ensure a smooth transition “as our members look forward to what should be a prosperous 2022”.

He has also paid tribute to the services of Mr King during his five-year tenure.

“On behalf of the REIV board, and sector more broadly, I thank Gil King for his tireless commitment to our members and skillful navigation of an often complex operating environment with a range of stakeholder interests,” Mr Docking said.  

“Today, our organisation is on a firm financial footing, representing over 7,000 members, and Gil has been instrumental in establishing this strong position for the institute.” 

Mr King himself has also remarked on the appointment of the new CEO, stating that he has “great confidence in Quentin’s capability in ensuring the voice of the real estate sector is heard at every level of government and that the sector continues to be recognised as a significant economic contributor to Victoria’s economy”.

Mr King, who is retiring, said: “As I head off for a quieter future, I extend thanks to our sector’s key local stakeholders, including Victorian government representatives, leaders from other property entities, Victoria’s business chambers and the media – engagement with them has been critical to our cause.”
