DLA welcomes new Board Chair
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Graeme Parton as Non-Executive Chair of our board of directors. This recognises the growth and evolution of the business, bringing a need for independent and experienced leadership to help chart its future.
Graeme is a highly experienced property and development adviser, and non-executive director. He is currently a director of Aequitas Advisory and Development Victoria, a committee member of the Property Council of Australia, and chair of RMIT University’s School of Property, Construction and Project Management Advisory Board. His interests also extend to the arts and charity through his roles as a member of the Australian Ballet Redevelopment Committee, council member of the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne, and director of the charitable foundation St John’s Foundation Limited.
Graeme brings wide experience from his former roles as a director of Charter Keck Cramer, Pinnacle Property Group and Stirling Properties Limited, along with positions on numerous advisory boards and committees including Enterprise Geelong, Sunshine Town Centre Partnership Group, Victorian State of the Environment Urban Planning and Development report, and Postcode 3000.
Responding to his appointment, Graeme said “It’s exciting that the practice is entering its next phase of growth. I look forward with enthusiasm to working closely with the DLA Board to guide this growth and optimise its potential.”
Graeme succeeds Michael McDonald, who stepped down after two years in the post. We extend our deep gratitude to Michael for his wise counsel during a period of transition.
