Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz

5 December 2013 — Mirvac managing director and chief executive Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz has been named as a new board director of the Green Building Council of Australia.

Ms Lloyd-Hurwitz will join five other appointments announced by the GBCA in September.

“I am passionate about working with our industry to deliver a holistic approach that examines sustainability from all angles,” Ms Lloyd-Hurwitz said. “The GBCA’s work over the last decade has been transformational, and I am pleased to have the opportunity to further that work over the months and years ahead.

Prior to her appointment at Mirvac in 2012, Ms Looyd-Hurwitz served as managing director at LaSalle Investment Management, where she was responsible for business operation, core investment accounts and funds business lines in the European region. She has also held senior executive positions at MGPA, Macquarie Group and Lend Lease Corporation, working in Australia, the US and Europe.

Chair Daniel Grollo said Mirvac had been a long-time GBCA supporter with a number of Green Star “firsts”.

“We are delighted that Susan will be contributing her exceptional knowledge and skills to our board,” Mr Grollo said.

Ms Lloyd-Hurwitz replaces Mirvac colleague Chris Luscombe, who has been on the GBCA Board since 2008.

Tony Arnel, global director of sustainability at Norman Disney & Young, a founding member of the board, is also stepping down, along with David Worley, former divisional chief executive of Crane Group; Ralph Horne, director of research and innovation for the College of Design and Social Context at RMIT University; and Darren Bilsborough, director of urban innovation at Woods Bagot.

“Tony, Chris, David, Ralph and Darren have made outstanding contributions through their industry expertise and insights, and we thank them for their dedication and thought leadership,” Mr Grollo said.
