Meet our President Elect

After years of dedicated service our current President, Rod Douglas, will soon be stepping down. Here he welcomes his successor, Gordon Davis.

On behalf of the Board of Greening Australia it is with great pleasure that I announce the appointment of Mr Gordon Davis as the next Chairman and President, effective at our next Annual General Meeting in late November 2014.

Greening Australia is leading Australia’s environmental restoration effort by implementing its new strategy Conservation Without Borders, through partnerships with landholders and the broader community, to restore Australia’s unique landscapes so that people and wildlife can co-exist and thrive.

Greening Australia has recently transformed its governance arrangements to have a single national, skills based Board, with Advisory Councils at a regional level, to assist with the implementation of the strategy. During that time we have been actively searching for a new Chairman and President, and we are delighted to have found a person of Gordon’s calibre.

With the structural reform behind us, Gordon will be the ideal leader to take Greening Australia forward, to achieve the landscape restoration outcomes within the Conservation Without Borders Strategy.

We look forward to Gordon commencing with Greening Australia and meeting with staff, friends and partner organisations.

In the meantime I wish Gordon well in his new role and I am sure Greening Australia will be in excellent hands.

Rod Douglas
