24 September 2013 – Caryn Kakas is looking for a replacement to fill her former position as executive director of the Property Council of Australia’s Residential Development Council.

Ms Kakas moved to Sydney this week from Melbourne following her appointment earlier this year as head external and government affairs with the PCA. Her previous roles include: national deputy director, Urban Development Institute of Australia and policy manager for the Insurance Council of Australia.

Ms Kakas said she was looking for someone who potentially has trade association experience or worked with government. “We’ve got a really good brand across Liberal, Labor and Green [politicians]; it’s not about access. It’s someone who understands a very focused policy direction; someone with a good policy brain.”
