Landcom welcomes new appointments to the Board

Landcom is pleased to announce the appointment of Susan MacDonald and Trent Alston as non-executive Directors to the Landcom Board. The new Directors join the Chair Peter Roberts, and existing Directors John Barbeler and Pamela Hanrahan.

Landcom Board of Directors Chair Peter Roberts said he was very excited with the new appointments.

“Susan and Trent bring a wealth of knowledge and experience from the property sector which will serve Landcom and the Board well,” Mr Roberts said.

“They will complement the Board’s strengths bringing additional skills, particularly in the areas of asset management, business operations and strategy.

“The appointments come at an exciting time in the sector, with new ideas and innovation being explored as NSW faces both increasing prices and pressure to house its growing population.

“The Board is looking forward to working with the new Directors to continue to deliver on Landcom’s strategy to improve the supply, diversity and affordability of new housing.”

Commenting on the appointment, Ms MacDonald said she was excited to be taking on the role.

“I am passionate about how the built form can provide not only a functional role, such as housing, but if done well, how it can impact how we feel, how we connect to others and how we influence a positive impact on communities,” Ms MacDonald said.

“Landcom is taking up this challenge by working with government agencies, the private sector and not-for-profit organisations to deliver a range of housing types that are sustainable, innovative and attractive places across NSW.”

Mr Alston said he was thrilled to be joining the Landcom board.

“I have a long association with the property sector that started many years ago as young boy helping my dad on construction sites.

“Now as a father of four adult children I am passionate about helping tackle affordability and sustainability and being on Landcom’s Board is a way for me to address these challenges.”
