Election reflects continued regional presence
MASTER BUILDERS Queensland has welcomed a new Board, and president Ralf Dutton from Far North Queensland. The election is a reflection of Master Builders continued regional presence, with nine offices across Queensland.
The Board will build on the successes of the previous Board, with a focus on ensuring a policy agenda that helps support the industry as the cornerstone of the Queensland economy.
The Board, which meets monthly, is responsible for the governance and strategic direction of Master Builders.
In accordance with the provisions of the Constitution, the management and control of the association is vested in the Board and elected by the Master Builders College every three years.
President of the Board is Ralf Dutton, who is proprietor of Value Homes (NQ). Ralf began work as an architectural draftsman while studying for his building qualification and became a registered builder in 1978. He worked for Ballantyne Homes from 1979 to 1992, after which he began his first of many successful businesses.
Mr Dutton is joined by construction chairman Rod McDonald; housing chairman Ross Hogno; and Board members Geoff Baguley, Drew Brockhurst, Adrian Gabrielli, Nick Herron and Peter Schriek.
