Mirvac executive Paige Walker has been appointed president of the Property Council of Australia’s Western Australia chapter. 

Ms Walker has led Mirvac’s residential development business in the state as general manager since 2016, overseeing the company’s $700 million WA development pipeline of apartments and master-planned communities from acquisition through to project delivery.

Of projects completed, Ms Walker has delivered Claremont by Mirvac, Latitude Leighton Beach and the Peninsula Burswood.

For the past four years, Ms Walker has acted as the council’s WA vice president and has additionally been a member of a number of advisory committees and working groups within industry and government.

“The last year has taught us all to expect the unexpected, and I am excited to work with my Division Council to guide the industry across the next two years,” Ms Walker said.

“There is a lot of optimism in the market, and the Property Council team will continue to work to harness the opportunities ahead for all members.

“Western Australia’s economic success requires a long-term focus on the right policy settings to enhance business and consumer confidence and support sustainable growth over the long term.

“The property industry will play a central role in WA’s economic renaissance and ongoing prosperity.”

Ms Walker replaces outgoing president, AMP Capital divisional investment and development manager Scott Nugent, who has served in the role for two years.

Property Council WA executive director Sandra Brewer thanked Mr Nugent for his commitment and advocacy during his term, which included developing the industry’s response to the COVID-prompted Commercial Tenancies Code of Conduct, land tax relief, housing stimulus packages and major planning reforms such as the State Development Assessment Unit.  

The organisation’s Division Council features 17 of the state’s property leaders, with the 2021-22 Division Council including representatives from Hawaiian, Finbar, ISPT, Lavan Legal, Hero Properties, Hesperia and Primewest, to name just a few.
