Lee-Anne Bac, director, Advisory Services at Grant Thornton Johannesburg, has been appointed as Gauteng Chairperson for the Women's Property Network South Africa for 2015.


Welcoming delegates at the Leadership Conference sponsored by Standard Bank on 5 February, Lee-Anne Bac said: "I'm delighted to be chairing the Gauteng Chapter of the WPN this year and I have many ambitions, all of which are well aligned to the WPN's business objectives.

My core goal during 2015 is to create even greater visibility of the good work that women are doing in the South African commercial property industry, thereby driving promotion and increasing membership for the WPN nationwide."

The Women's Property Network was established in early 2000 to create a forum for women in a predominantly male industry to exchange information, develop business contacts and enhance professional success. The Network drives change within the property industry by providing members and sponsors with opportunities to network and do business with each other and by providing bursaries to deserving young women in order to further empower the sector in South Africa.

Bac joined Grant Thornton 18 years ago, in 1997 and she was appointed as a director within the Advisory Services division in 1999. She has extensive experience in research-based consulting and carries out feasibility studies, economic impact studies, financial evaluations, business evaluations, and marketing research specifically in the tourism, hospitality and property sectors through South Africa.

Her in-depth knowledge of the property sector and the advisory role she plays in this space at Grant Thornton bears testament to her Chairperson appointment at the WPN. Bac was also awarded the WPN "Excellence" award during 2013.

Grant Thornton is currently the leading provider of audit services to the listed property companies in South Africa, which also emphasises the firm's expertise in this field.

Genevieve Naidoo, national WPN Chairperson for 2015 said: "We're delighted to have Lee-Anne leading our Gauteng Chapter and we look forward to engaging with her so that we can properly leverage her skills and expertise for the greater good of our network."

The WPN has chapters in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town with over 300 members countrywide
