QUINN APPOINTED IN STATE GOVERMENT ROLE

THE executive manager of Mulpha Sanctuary Cove Alison Quinn (pictured) has accepted a senior State Government role for Growth Management Queensland after resigning from her current position.

Minister for Local Government Paul Lucas says Quinn will join Director-General Jack Noye in the Department of Local Government and Planning.

"In recent years Alison has been a driving force behind the highly regarded Sanctuary Cove resort in her role at Mulpha,” says Lucas.

"Prior to that she was state manager at Austcorp when that company was working on developments such as SW1 at South Bank. She brings extensive private sector experience to her new State role following stints as an accountant, banker, property developer and senior company executive.

"Alison has also been heavily involved in the Brisbane Powerhouse Centre for Live Arts and both Urban Futures Brisbane and Urban Renewal Brisbane boards. Exposure to both local and state governments, industry credibility and an understanding and passion for Queensland's planning imperatives impressed the selection panel.”

Quinn told Gold Coast Business News the decision did not come easily, but made up her mind during the school holidays when she was able to spend some quality time with her family.

“I was head hunted for the role and it will be an enormous challenge,” she says.

“I’m the type of person who likes challenges and change, and this was a very good career move. It was a really hard decision and I took two weeks off to think about it. It’s exciting when you realise you have options.”

Mulpha will have until December to find a replacement for Quinn, regarded by many at Sanctuary Cove as an inspiring team leader and a no-nonsense negotiator.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed working for Mulpha and the Lee family and especially Seng-Huang (executive chairman of Mulpha Australia), who has been wonderful to work with,” says Quinn.

Mulpha has pumped more than $50 million over the last few years into Sanctuary Cove and is the driving force behind the community’s growth phase.

Mulpha also owns the InterContinental Sydney, Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove, Hilton Melbourne Airport, The Hotel School Sydney, Salzburg Apartments, Norwest Business Park, 99 Macquarie Street and Bimbadgen Estate.

The company also holds a 25 per cent stake in FKP Property Group, giving the company access to the burgeoning retirement sector in Australia.

Enormous revenues and growth in China have been achieved where Mulpha owns around $10 billion in property assets.
