The Australian Property Institute is the leading industry body for property professionals in Australia.

An incumbent board member, Chris has again nominated himself, commenting that he remains committed to building the voice, reach and relevance of the API.

“The API has evolved significantly in the last few years, and I would like to see the organisation become even more proactive and influential in the future.

There are great opportunities ahead for the property profession. I feel very strongly that I can make an important contribution to the wider property business community as a member of the Board.”

As CEO of Opteon, Chris has led the business’s strategic vision for diversification as well as organic and international development, resulting in significant growth over the past few years.
