Experienced local Builder and Managing Director at Winspace Constructions, Grant Williamson has been elected as the President of the Housing Industry Association (HIA) Hunter Region.
HIA Hunter Executive Director, Craig Jennion said Grant’s extensive experience in home extension and renovations and his knowledge of the industry led him to be nominated as the HIA Hunter’s fifth Regional President.
“For the next two years Grant, along with newly elected Vice-President Paul Le Mottee of Le Mottee Group and 10 other HIA members, will form the Hunter Regional Executive Committee,” Craig said.
“The role of the Regional Executive Committee it is to represent the local region, assist in the development of HIA policies and provide a local forum to deal with regional issues.”
In addition to the appointment of a new President and Vice-President, HIA Hunter welcomed two new members, Megan Mottley of Polytec and Greg Doodson of Suncoast Bathroom Renovations, who were elected to the committee for the first time.
“This injection of new members with experience across the region is timely considering the continued growth of the sector across the Hunter and Central Coast,” Craig said.
“With a strong understanding of the challenges those in the residential building and construction industry face daily, I’m certain Grant will successfully lead the skills and experience present on the HIA Hunter Regional Executive Committee.”
Grant said it was a great honour to be elected to lead the HIA Hunter Regional Executive Committee.
“I hope to build on the legacy of previous Hunter Region presidents by strengthening the capacity and capability of both the association and its members,” Grant said.
“I look forward to working with the new Hunter Regional Executive Committee to develop policies and approaches that ensure that we retain a competitive residential housing industry, something which is critical to the economic wellbeing and growth of not only the Hunter but NSW more broadly.”
