CEO of JLL Australia, Stephen Conry said, “It is a great honour for two of JLL’s leaders in our Valuations and Advisory team to be recognised by the property industry. We are also extremely proud that JLL Australia has been recognised for its work in promoting diversity and creating a progressive workplace culture for the advancement of the property sector.

“Across Australia, many of the JLL Australia team are involved in committee work and individual initiatives to promote and advance diversity within our business, the property industry and the wider community. This award is a great credit to our leaders, committees and every individual within our business who contribute and share a vision of a diverse and inclusive culture,” said Mr Conry.

JLL’s Head of Valuation Advisory – Asia Pacific, John Talbot said, “The recognition for two leading members of JLL’s Valuation & Advisory team is a great honour for the entire team across Australia.

“Tyrone Hodge is a tireless advocate for valuation professionals and for our industry. His passion for property has spanned a 30 year career. He has served as National President of the API, NSW President and Chair, so it is fitting he was awarded the Colonel Alfred Clifford Catt Award which is named in honour of the first President of the organisation,” said Mr Talbot.

The Colonel Alfred Clifford Catt Award recognises contribution and commitment to the property profession and the community of the API.

Mr Talbot said, “Aleisha Brookes has more than 20 years of experience in property valuations with JLL and now leads our Valuation Advisory Quality Assurance Team, one of the pillars of JLL’s risk framework. Aleisha’s professional and dedicated work in the property industry is honoured by receiving the Lesley Bennett Women in Property Award, named after the API’s first female to join the organisation in 1962.

“The API awards are recognition of the outstanding work of our teams and what they deliver for our clients,” said Mr Talbot.
