Elan Barr and Jonathan Goh / m3architecture

The Committee for Melbourne has named a new chief executive officer in Mark Melvin. Mr Melvin has a background in retail banking, franchising, oil and gas, and retail, with 30 years of experience in executive roles in Australia and Europe. 

Brisbane practice m3architecture has appointed two new directors, Elan Barr and Jonathan Goh, in its 25th year in business. Both architects have been with the practice for nine years and have experience in the heritage, culture and commercial sectors, with specialist expertise in the education sector. The appointments expand the leadership team to six.

Kathryn Franklin has been appointed head of ESG and social licence at Qantas. She was previously head of sustainability at Coles Group – where she has been replaced by Anna Stewart. She will be working with new sustainability program manager Amber Beaumont who comes over from Dairy Australia. Ms Stewart was previously in corporate sustainability reporting at ANZ

Joseph Caparotta has been named principal sustainability consultant at Cundall. He was previously sustainability project engineer of Asia Pacific buildings at Stantec and has more than ten years experience in the property sector, with accreditation in sustainability and property (NABERS, Green Star, Regenerative Practice, Property Development).

The Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) has announced Amandine Denis-Ryan as the new chief executive officer for its Australia and South Asia office, replacing outgoing research director Tim Buckley. Ms Denis-Ryan has a decade in leadership positions in the Monash University-affiliated body Climateworks Centre, working on a range of energy, finance and climate issues with a particular focus on obtaining net-zero commitments from state governments, businesses and investors.

She believes we are entering a crucial period for the energy transition in the Asia Pacific region: “In the next decade, Australia has the opportunity to lead the world in demonstrating how to power its economy with renewables and capturing the economic opportunities associated with this shift.” 

“Similarly, India has huge renewable energy potential that can be deployed to meet its rising energy demand. The government has set ambitious climate targets, which it enhanced at COP26, creating massive opportunities for investment to accelerate into the development of low-carbon infrastructure assets.”
