Andrea Carolan
Managing Director
Public Private Property

Andrea Carolan is a Certified Practising Valuer and Fellow of the API. The early part of Andrea’s career included time at the State Transport Authority, Colliers International and Jones Lang Wotton (now JLL). She eventually settled at Maloney Field Services where she remained for some 24 years.  

It was during this time that Andrea became involved in land acquisition for major infrastructure projects. Such projects included road, rail, drainage, electricity transmission and gas pipelines. Involvement in such a wide range of infrastructure projects provided opportunities to gain skills in whole of property, partial interest and easement acquisitions.  

In 2017 Andrea established the specialist valuation practice Public Private Property (‘PPP’). Andrea is also an enthusiastic ambassador for the International Right of Way Association (‘IRWA’). The IRWA offers education, networking and mentoring to professionals involved in the development of major infrastructure projects. As President of IRWA’s Australian Chapter, Andrea is dedicated to extending the benefits and influence of IRWA to individuals, companies, Government and industry throughout Australia and New Zealand.
