REIQ Journal : December January 2009
Journal Q & A 27 The Journal Q & Awith Brian Stewart, Urban Development Institute of Australia (Qld) chief executive and general counsel, and REIQ director Brian Stewart has been the chief executive of the UDIA since 2002. Prior to that appointment, he was stimulated by the change and challenge of working in both the private and public sectors in a variety of roles, including chief executive of the ENERGEX Brisbane Festival, general manager of the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) and a barrister. BRIAN HAS FOUND great satisfaction in working with a diverse range of professionals – frompolice, judges, politicians, teachers, actors and musicians to the range of people in all facets of the property industry and the media. He has been a non-member director of the REIQ since 2006. Q The UDIA and the REIQ are both member-based organisations committed to representing the interests of members. Given your experience with both organisations, what do you believe are the principal synergies between the two? A In reality there are very few differences in how all responsible industry bodies work. There is a principal focus on ensuring that the most reasonable and favourable operating conditions exist for the industry in the context of members’operational activities.
