Michael Zorbas from Melbourne, Victoria has been appointed the new Chief Executive of The Property Council of Australia.

Mr Zorbas, who is currently the Property Council’s Group Executive Policy and Advocacy, commenced the role on Wednesday and became the fifth CEO in the 54-year history of the organisation.

National President of the Property Council, David Harrison, said in a statement: “Mike has the vision to lead our industry forward in challenging times and his ability to engage with governments at all levels is a significant asset as the regulatory environment becomes increasingly complex.”

Mr Zorbas has jointly acted in the Chief Executive role since December. He previously served as Group Head of Government, Media and Industry Affairs at Lendlease Australia, Group Head of Strategy and Corporate Communications at Grocon and General Manager of Government Relations at Stockland, roles in which engaged governments around the country.

Before these roles, Mr Zorbas served as the Property Council’s Chief Advocate to the Australian Parliament.

“I am delighted Mike will continue his great work for our industry as the Property Council’s new Chief Executive… He is a strong and respected voice for our industry,” Mr Harrison said.

“He is knowledgeable and passionate about the role property plays in shaping our cities for the better and he understands and champions members’ interests across the country.”

Mr Zorbas said he was looking forward to working with members, “allies and all levels of government to unlock the potential of our great Australian cities.”

“With our three-year strategy in place, Australia needs to harness the insight and thought leadership of the property industry to get the next decade right for our communities. We need better planning for our cities and significantly more domestic and overseas investment,” Mr Zorbas said.
