Property Council statement on Sandra Brewer
The following statement can be attributed to Property Council Chief Executive Mike Zorbas:
“The Property Council of Australia’s Western Australian Executive Director Sandra Brewer is standing for pre-selection as the Liberal candidate for the seat of Cottesloe for the next State election.
The Property Council is a non-partisan representative body and as appropriate, and in accordance with our policies, Sandra has advised she will step aside from her Executive Director position while the pre-selection is underway.
If Sandra is successfully preselected she will resign all roles with the Property Council.
In the meantime, the Property Council will contract Sandra to undertake a number of non-member-facing projects where no conflicts arise.
Sandra’s contracting 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.
During this period Deputy Executive Director Emily Young will become Interim Executive Director. Emily has helped Sandra build the Western Australian division into a powerful champion for the property industry and industry more broadly and I am looking forward to working with her in the coming months.”
