Charter Hall’s managing director and group CEO has been elected national president of the Property Council, taking the reins from JLL’s CEO Stephen Conry AM.
“It has been a tough year for the property sector, but we should be proud of the major role the industry has played in Australia’s response to the COVID pandemic,” Harrison says.
“Property has done much of the heavy lifting to pull our economy out of recession and stands ready to achieve even better results over the long term with a continuation of positive policy settings.
“As stimulus and support measures are wound down the Property Council will be leading the public debate on reactivating CBDs, resuming overseas migration and reforms to our tax and planning systems.
“With property employing 1.48 million Australians, and contributing $234.7 billion to our economy, the health of our industry needs to be front of mind for all levels of government.”
