The Property Council has restructured to bump up its efforts in media and government. But the cost has been the role of Caryn Kakas, head of external and government affairs. Ms Kakas was previously executive director of the Residential Development Council and has also worked with the Urban Development Institute of Australia.
Ms Kakas earlier this year resigned as chair of the sustainable housing committee and the role taken over by the Green Building Council’s market development director Trudy-Ann King with Stephen White from the CRC for Low Carbon Living appointed deputy.
The new two roles on offer at the PCA are: head of media and communications based in Sydney and head of government relations based in Canberra.
