The Forest Stewardship Council Australia is on the hunt for a new chief executive officer, with current CEO Natalie Reynolds shifting into a new position as transformation and development director for FSC International in the New Year. In her new Melbourne-based role, Ms Reynolds has been tasked with leading the team that will map out future pathways and strategy for the organisation including developing a more efficient organisational set up and governance model.

“While we will miss Natalie at FSC Australia we recognise that her strategic and transformation management skills make her the perfect candidate for this important new position,” said FSCA chair Jonathan La Nauze.

“The Board has begun the process to recruit Natalie’s successor and we’re committed to ensuring a comprehensive handover of the FSC Australia CEO position can occur. We look forward to making further announcements in due course.”

Mr La Nauze also said the organisation has grown in Australia to the point where it has “the capacity to develop a locally owned National Forest Stewardship Standard”.

“We’ve got the best pipeline of work we’ve had for a long time – a lot of voluntary stuff, especially in retail and shopping centre, there’s a bit of interest at the moment.”
