Property Council honours industry legends
Two industry legends have been honoured by Property Council for their extraordinary long-term contribution to the organisation and the property industry.
Lendlease General Manager Queensland, Communities, Development, Guy Gibson, and Urbis’ former Qld Regional Director, Peter Hyland, were both conferred with Queensland Honorary Life Membership at the Property Council’s 20 Year Anniversary Dinner on Tuesday evening.
Queensland Executive Director of the Property Council, Chris Mountford, said the pair had a significant influence on the organisation’s success over the past two decades.
“Guy and Peter have both had highly demanding roles in their respective companies, yet have made the time to go above and beyond in their involvement with the Property Council,” Mr Mountford said.
“Peter and Guy have been passionate advocates for, and dedicated servants of, the property industry.
“They both have made a distinct personal contribution to the organisation’s activities to advance the industry’s interests, which has been highly worthy of this recognition.”
Guy Gibson served the Property Council for 14 years as a member of Queensland Division Council, including a significant contribution as Queensland Division President in 2007 and 2008.
Throughout his time with the Property Council, Guy has been a significant driver of advocacy submissions, content and internal and external thought-leadership. His deep knowledge of public policy relating to land development - nationally and internationally - is unrivalled and is regularly sought by Premiers, Mayors and other influential public figures.
Guy’s enduring legacy is an organizational culture in the Queensland Division that puts evidence, research and knowledge at the centre of our public policy advocacy.
Peter Hyland’s leadership, and his extraordinary personal commitment of time and resources, has fundamentally improved the Property Council’s capacity in Queensland.
Peter was elected as a member of the Queensland Division Council in 2006 and served until his relocation to Singapore a few months ago. Peter’s inexhaustible contribution over many years has greatly benefited the research and thought-leadership aspects of the Property Council’s advocacy, as well as the Division’s commercial operations.
Peter has set a new benchmark for personal and corporate support to the industry through his involvement with the Property Council.
