24 September 2013 — The Green Building Council of Australia has appointed five new board directors.

The new GBCA directors are:

  • Tanya Cox, executive general manager, property services and chief operating officer, DEXUS Property Group
  • John Flecker, chief executive, Brookfield Multiplex Australasia
  • Mark Gray, managing director, Leighton Properties
  • Rob Sindel, chief executive and managing director, CSR Limited
  • Mark Steinert, managing director and chief executive, Stockland

The appointments have been made following the retirement of Leighton’s Andrew Borger from the board and the upcoming retirement of several directors.

GBCA chair Daniel Grollo, said the new board members brought additional depth and influence to the experienced board.

“The GBCA’s Board of Directors reflects the strength and diversity of Australia’s green building movement, and represents all facets of the industry, including construction companies and sub-contractors, professional services firms, building owners, product manufacturers and financial organisations,” Mr Grollo said.

“The Board of Directors sets the strategic direction of our organisation, and provides active support for a range of committees and taskforces.

“I would also like to thank Andrew Borger for his many years of service on the GBCA Board. Andrew has been a vocal and passionate advocate of green building in Queensland and nationally, and his exemplary leadership has helped us to transform the market.

“We look forward to capitalising on the talents and experience of our new board members, who will amplify our message that green buildings and sustainable communities and cities can deliver economic, social and environmental benefits to all Australians.”
