An ESG champion, Katherine will work mindfully with the committee to identify challenges and barriers to growth.
Georgia has been appointed to The Future Directions Committee, designed for aspiring future leaders in the property industry. A key focus for this committee is to develop an industry networking and professional development platform for young property professionals (under 35s). Georgia is also a Committee Member of Taylor’s Women in Construction engagement program.
Philip has been appointed to the Residential Committee, where he will work with the government and wider industry to develop solutions in relation to residential property and development.
