FORMER REIWA president Rob Druitt has been appointed to the Heritage Council of Western Australia, filling a vacancy on the nine-member statutory board.

“Mr Druitt has served on the Real Estate Institute’s national and state boards, including finance and risk-management subcommittees, and was REIWA president from 2006 to 2009,” Heritage Minister Albert Jacob said.

“Mr Druitt is a member of the SAS Resources Trust board and is actively involved in SAS fundraising activities.

“He also volunteers his time and skills to charity groups such as the Multiple Sclerosis Society and Radio Lollipop.”

Mr Jacob said Mr Druitt’s 25 years of experience in residential and commercial real estate would also bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Heritage Council.

“With his real estate, development and corporate governance experience, Mr Druitt is well-placed to support the work of the Heritage Council in recognising, protecting and promoting WA’s rich cultural heritage,” Mr Jacob said.

Mr Druitt has been appointed to the position until December 31, 2017.

The Heritage Council is the Liberal National Government’s advisory body on heritage matters and is supported by the State Heritage Office to identify, celebrate and promote the conservation and sensitive development of WA’s cultural heritage places.
