Quentin Kilian (MAICD, AIMM, CBA)
Chief Executive Officer
Real Estate Institute of the Northern Territory
Quentin moved to Darwin in 1968 but left to follow a career as a Radio Announcer in 1984. This career path took him to Toowoomba, Launceston, the Gold Coast, Coffs Harbour and a stint as the Breakfast Announcer with 5AA in Adelaide.
In 1991 Quentin (re)married and moved to Hong Kong where he held positions such as Promotions Director for Star TV (with a daily coverage of 220 million households) and was Secretary-General of the Australian Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong (AustCham). He also spent a year living in Singapore where he was General Manager of the Vision Four Television Network.
On returning to Australia, Quentin took up the role of Regional Regulatory Manager Asia Pacific with the US based satellite operator PanAmSat where he had coverage of some 43 countries across the Asia Pacific region.
Most recently he has spent the past 6 years in senior roles with the Northern Territory Government as Director International Trade and Asian Relations, and running a new unit for the Chief Minister called Workforce Growth NT.
Quentin is married with two teenage sons and highly strung Tibetan Terrier named Oliver (which accounts for the hair loss and greying of the remaining hair!).
