Congratulations Kim Knox – REIQ Commercial Property Manager of the Year 2013
Posted On - 11 Feb 2013

We are pleased to announce that Ms Kim Knox, General Manager of Riparian Plaza, has been named the 2013 Commercial Property Manager of the Year at the prestigious Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) Awards for Excellence.

More than 550 of Queensland’s top real estate professionals, the Governor of Queensland, the Attorney-General and the Minister for Housing attended a gala presentation at the Hilton Hotel on Friday 8th February 2013 to celebrate and honour Queensland’s most outstanding performers in the real estate profession.

The annual REIQ Awards for Excellence is the most prestigious event in the property industry’s calendar, recognising outstanding achievement and commitment to integrity in the profession. The awards aim to encourage, recognise and promote excellence and best practice in real estate.

Ms Knox has been associated with Riparian Plaza since the completion of its construction in 2005. Over the past 8 years, she has confronted and managed issues pertaining to commercial office, retail, residential, adjoining land owners and river leasing; areas which are inherently unique to the asset management of a Premium-Grade, mixed-use development and not simultaneously encountered on a daily basis in the property management of other commercial properties.

The REIQ Award is fitting recognition for Ms Knox’s exceptional management achievements and commitment to best practice, client service, team development and her dedication to charitable work.

Ms Knox will now proceed to the 2013 REIA National Awards for Excellence, to be held on 14th March 2013 at Parliament House, Canberra.
