Trader Representative Takes On Research Role – Ivano Guseli has been engaged by QVM and CoM to look into lessons that may be learned from recent renewal processes at South Melbourne, Prahran, Dandenong, Preston and some overseas markets. The impact of renewal on traders will be a prime focus.
Engagement of a trader to assist in this type of work is seen as a positive move for all traders as we strive for greater involvement in the decision making process around QVM Renewal.
