IPWEA Victoria Division – New CEO Appointment


I am delighted to inform you that a decision has been made  by the Board to appoint David Hallett to the position of CEO of IPWEAvic.

2015-05-29 14.31.03

        David Hallett          Ross Goyne

David was selected from a very talented pool of 36 applicants for the position and his appointment follows a comprehensive recruitment and selection process involving the Board’s CEO recruitment panel capably supported  by CT Management’s Nicki Sportelli.


David will commence duties in mid June taking over from Bruce Douglas who has been acting in the role of CEO since December last year.


David comes to IPWEAvic with many years experience in senior roles at the  Australian Institute of Architects / Archicentre.


David held the role of General Manager, Operations (Archicentre and Ask An Architect businesses) since January 2013 so he well understands the challenges facing an industry based professional member organisation.


David has extensive experience in the areas of business integration and change management, market communications, service capability, quality and risk management, stakeholder, staff and provider engagement and I am sure you will agree that these are key attributes for us going forward.


His  key achievements include;

  • Development and implementation of an organisational Operational Improvement Project
  • Development of business Quality Management System
  • Establishment of an on-line, competency-based learning and development program
  • Establishment of a national network of Consultative Committees including Charter development
  • Development of member and consumer market communications


Prior to this role from September 2009 – December 2012, David held the role of General Manager Market and Product Development and before that Regional Manager (Victoria, SA, WA & Tasmania) with Archicentre.


David holds the qualifications of  Bachelor of Architecture with post graduate qualifications in Business Management including a Diploma of Business Management and an MBA.

David also currently sits on the Architects Registration Board and the Building Practitioners Board.


Although his background is not engineering, architecture is a very closely related profession and there is no doubt that his skill set and experience is highly relevant and comparable.

He brings a solid background in member attraction, representation and product and service development and brings clear business acumen and strategic thinking capabilities to our team.


On your behalf I welcome David to our organisation and wish him all the very best for the future.
