Leading Queensland property developer Sunland Group has appointed Rebecca Frizelle to its board of directors, effective from January 2018.

The board selected Frizelle for the role of non-executive director, citing her extensive business experience.

Soheil Abedian, Sunland Group executive chairman, said Frizelle is eminently qualified for the role and extended his warmest congratulations on behalf of the Board.

“Rebecca is one of the most talented and respected business people on the Gold Coast and brings to the role more than 25 years’ experience in business strategy and workforce development,” Mr Abedian said.

“We are thrilled to welcome her to Sunland.”

Upon commencing in the role, Frizelle will also become a member of Sunland’s Audit and Risk Committee.

Abedian said the board’s skills and composition are closely aligned with Sunland’s strategic direction, as the group maintains its conservative approach to the delivery and replenishment of its $4.7 billion development portfolio.

The portfolio comprises 6,284 residential homes, urban land lots and multi-storey apartments along Australia’s eastern seaboard, and Sunland’s emerging retail portfolio.

Frizelle is chief operating officer of Frizelle Prestige and a key shareholder at Frizelle Sunshine Automotive and PWA, one of Australia’s leading private automotive groups, representing over 30 global automotive brands and generating more than $1.5 billion in annual revenues.

In 2015, she was appointed to the board of the Gold Coast Titans and became the first female chair in the NRL code. She stepped down from the role in September to pursue a personal stake in the club.

Frizelle is a director of the Griffith University Advisory Board, Audi Australia Foundation Board, and St Hilda’s School Foundation, and a Member of the AICD.
