15 June 2012 – Siobhan Toohill took part in a panel at UTS on Thursday to provide feedback to visiting architecture students from China on projects to revitalise an old quarry, after announcing she was leaving Stockland, where she was general manager of corporate responsibility and sustainability.
Ms Toohil, who had been with Stockland for nine years, said she would continue her industry roles with The Green Building Council of Australia where she is joint deputy chair and with the Property Council of Australia and will embark on consultancy work.
The move comes after significant restructuring and job losses at the company.
Ms Toohill will not be replaced but sustainability roles would be allocated across the company.
The company said a new business unit reporting to Mark Hunter would be called Sustainable Communities and Stakeholder Relations.
“The changes aim to harness the collective capability and expertise of our business unit sustainability teams for the benefit of the broader Stockland group,” Mr Hunter said in an email to staff on Wednesday, which was reported in The Australian Financial Review.
Mr Hunter will also be responsible for external communications, previously managing director Matthew Quinn as responsible.
