Andrew Brest Retirement


Salta Properties has announced that after 30 years of service its Executive Director – Treasury, Andrew Brest, will step down from his role to enjoy retirement, effective 31 December 2021.

Managing Director of Salta Properties, Sam Tarascio, said Andrew has played an integral role in the Salta Group’s growth and success and his departure signals the end of an era for the business.

Andrew was originally appointed by my father, our Founding Director, as CEO of Westgate Logistics in 1991 and for many years was instrumental in helping him grow the logistics business before turning his focus to the property side with Salta Properties.

“Since his original appointment, Andrew’s loyalty, dedication and commitment to my father, the business and the Tarascio family has been second to none - both as a family friend and close early neighbour to my parents and then as an employee.

“It’s rare these days to have the loyalty of an employee for 30 years, and on behalf of the broader Tarascio Family, I would like to thank Andrew for his absolute professionalism and dedication in assisting in a significant way to build the Salta business to what it is today.

“Much planning has gone into this transition and our administration and finance team have been strengthened this year with some key recruits. Kane Wallace was appointed as Group CFO earlier this year, and he has been working closely with Andrew. In the New Year, Kane will be taking on responsibility for the Treasury function,” concluded Mr Tarascio.

We wish Andrew a long, happy and healthy retirement.
