REIA names new CEO


The Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) has named Anna Neelagama as the organisation’s new CEO.

Ms Neelagama said she is excited to be working to tackle the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for the property sector in a “post-pandemic world”.

“I see real estate businesses as the heart of every Australian city and town, and a major contributor to the economic and social wellbeing of this country.”

Ms Neelagama is replacing Jock Kreitals in the role of CEO, who was farewelled by the organisation in February.

“Earlier in the year REIA embarked on a recruitment process for a new CEO and we received over 100 applicants for the role. We eventually decided upon Anna and I’m delighted to announce her appointment,” said REIA president Adrian Kelly.

“Anna definitely is experienced in the areas of policy and advocacy, which, amongst other facets, are crucial focuses that REIA works within for the benefit of all estate agents and their employees across Australia”.
