Appointment of Cath Evans as Victorian Executive Director

The Property Council of Australia has announced that company director and former legal executive Cath Evans will be the organisation’s new Victorian Executive Director.

Ms Evans joined the organisation in an interim capacity in September and her appointment follows an extensive search process.

Property Council Chief Executive Ken Morrison said he was pleased Ms Evans would be continuing with the organisation.

“Cath brings extensive corporate and advocacy experience to the Property Council and I am delighted that she will now be joining the Executive team on a permanent basis,” Mr Morrison said.

Ms Evans has been a practicing litigation lawyer and CEO/COO of large ASX listed professional services firms, operating in both Australia and the UK. She is also a company director and currently chairs a NFP board for an organisation providing family violence and homelessness services.

Ms Evans said she was looking forward to representing an industry which was the biggest employer in Victoria.

“This is an important time, with the Andrews Government re-elected in its own right and some significant economic and social challenges facing the state,” Ms Evans said.

“Providing affordable housing, increasing industrial land supply and improving the process for greater efficiency in planning and CBD renewal are all important areas where the industry can partner with government to deliver better outcomes.

“I look forward to championing the issues which are important to Victoria’s future,” she said.
