New beginnings on REIQ Board

REIQ Board, Director changes

The Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) today announced the retirement of non-member Director Eddie Chung, who has smoothly handed the baton to Kerri-Ann Smee.

REIQ Board Chairman Peter Brewer said during many years of dedicated service to the REIQ, Eddie Chung had made an enormous contribution to the Board and to the peak body.

“We are deeply grateful to Eddie for his invaluable guidance and financial expertise, which proved pivotal during critical junctures in the REIQ’s history,” Mr Brewer said.

“During his long tenure, Eddie played a vital role in ensuring the REIQ remained a profitable business and would continue to thrive through sustainable and varied revenue streams.

“Eddie has helped ensure a strong financial foundation for the REIQ’s future and has left an indelible mark on our organisation and its members.

“On a personal note, he will be sorely missed by the Board, but his retirement is undoubtedly well deserved, and we wish him well.”

Mr Brewer warmly welcomed incoming Director Kerri-Ann Smee, a Business Services Partner from BDO in Brisbane with over 20 years’ experience as a taxation and business advisory specialist.

“Kerri-Ann has stepped into this role seamlessly and I’m confident she will uphold Eddie’s legacy while making her own mark,” Mr Brewer said.

“Her extensive experience and deep understanding of taxation and business advisory in the real estate and construction industry is greatly beneficial and will contribute to the continued success and growth of the REIQ.”

Kerri-Ann officially commenced her role on the REIQ Board in July 2024.
