Premier Gladys Berejiklian today announced Barry Mann’s appointment as the new Chief Executive Officer of the UrbanGrowth NSW Development Corporation.
Ms Berejiklian said Mr Mann’s 30 years of experience in the property industry made him well qualified to lead UrbanGrowth at this exciting time in the State’s development.
“With the NSW Government making record investment in infrastructure, Mr Mann’s experience in construction, project management and strategy on major revitalisation projects will be crucial,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“Barry has vast experience having initiated the $2 billion Parramatta Square project when he worked for Parramatta City Council and more recently in roles across the UrbanGrowth NSW’s project portfolio including Bays Precinct, Parramatta North, Waterloo Estate and Green Square Town Centre and Oran Park Town.
Mr Mann started his career in the private sector, including 14 years with Lendlease in Sydney, Indonesia and Singapore. Mr Mann moved into private property development in 2002 before joining Stockland Corporation six years later, leading the residential development business in NSW. He led Parramatta City Council’s property activities from 2014 to 2016 before starting with UrbanGrowth NSW as Head of Projects last year.
Mr Mann will commence his role on 25 September.
