The following statement can be attributed to Property Council CEO Ken Morrison.

The Property Council of Australia’s Director of Media and Communications, Henry Pike, has been pre-selected as the LNP candidate for the seat of Bowman for the next Federal election. 
 
The Property Council is a non-partisan representative body and, as appropriate, Henry has advised he will resign his senior staff position to campaign for the election. The Property Council will contract Henry to undertake a number of member-facing projects where no conflicts arise.
 
His consulting work will not involve any aspect of the Property Council’s external advocacy work and we are instituting a clear management framework during this period to avoid any actual, potential or perceived conflicts of interest. 
 
We congratulate Henry on his successful pre-selection and extend our best wishes for his future endeavours.
