TYRONE Hodge is one of the candidates seeking to be elected to the national board of the Australian Property Institute (API).

Hodge said he wants to ensure the API remains relevant not just for members, but also to the property industry and the wider community.

He added that the property profession continues to face challenges as a result of rapid technology changes and the commoditisation of professional services.

“We are a proud profession however without change we run the risk of obsolescence and I will continue to confront change head on to ensure that the profession has a future.

“I have a passion for Property and Technology that spans a 30 year career I embrace change and disruption to create better solutions for clients and see myself as a “data and analytics visionary”.

“I will ensure that we continue to invest in research, new product development and relationships with likeminded organisations to map out a sustainable future for the profession.

“I believe there is still more to do particularly in relation to PropTech, improving professional standards, driving fair business terms with suppliers and improving diversity across all aspects of the API.” Hodge said.

  1. What is your interest to come on board with the Australian Property Institute?

I am passionate about our profession and want to ensure that we create a sustainable and relevant future for all of our stakeholders. I recognise that API members are employed across a range of diverse property roles and that the industry and individual needs of stakeholders are constantly evolving.

Over the past 9 years I have held senior positions on both Divisional and National Council which has given me the opportunity to engage with members who have told me that they want to be part of a contemporary and relevant API. I want to ensure that we remain relevant not just for our Members, but also to the property industry and the wider community.

  1. What financial experience or expertise do you bring to the API?

I have managed businesses in a number of large listed companies for the last 20 years. This has taught me the importance of financial management and prudent decision making. In my last year as Chair of the board we have delivered a strong turn around in finances which is setting us up for s strong future.

  1. What governance experience do you bring to the API?

I am a member of the AICD and understand the importance of corporate governance. I have practical experience gained in my day job as a senior executive and as a serving board member of the API.

  1. What strategic planning experience do you bring to the API?

I have an entrepreneurial spirit and believe that all businesses should constantly evolve in order to stay relevant, this is no different for the API and our members. We are a proud profession however without change we run the risk of obsolescence and I will continue to confront change head on to ensure that the profession has a future.

I have gained experience in Strategy in my former roles and through undertaking an MBA.

  1. To further pursue API’s strategic direction, it would be of great benefit if prospective Directors could contribute advocacy, policy and/or digital communications experience to the Board. What is your experience in one or more of these areas?

I have a passion for Property and Technology that spans a 30 year career I embrace change and disruption to create better solutions for clients and see myself as a “data and analytics visionary”. I have lead the charge in the property sector for many years having driven the disruption of real estate advertising and adoption of the Internet in the mid 90’s with the early days of what is now the REA group; leading a team focused on consumer and data analytics at Pacific Micromarketing (now part of Experian); founding a technology incubator and most recently leading a team focused on valuation transformation and technology at JLL.

  1. In general, what can you bring to the API and why should members elect you?

The profession continues to face challenges as a result of rapid technology changes and the commoditisation of professional services, I will ensure that we continue to invest in research, new product development and relationships with likeminded organisations to map out a sustainable future for the profession.

I believe there is still more to do particularly in relation to PropTech, improving professional standards, driving fair business terms with suppliers and improving diversity across all aspects of the API.

The Australian Property Institute (API) Board Elections will open on Thursday 18 July 2019 until 23:59 AEST on Sunday 28 July 2018.

The API has partnered with CorpVote to provide an online voting service.  All eligible voting Members will receive emails from CorpVote with details of how-to login and vote.
