AGIC appoints five new board directors
The Australian Green Infrastructure Council (AGIC) has announced the appointment of five new members to its Board of Directors. The five nominees were unanimously elected to the board at the inaugural AGIC AGM on 6 August 2009.
David Hood, AGIC Chairman, said, “I am very pleased to welcome our five new directors. They all bring a wealth of knowledge and unique skills to AGIC from a number of different industry sectors.”
The five new members are:
- Nick Apostolidis, General Manager Client Development and Director, GHD
- Michael Kerry, Queensland Regional Director, Parsons Brinckerhoff
- Peter Olsen, Executive General Manager Human Resources & Sustainability (Sydney), Leighton Contractors
- Mark Rogers, Asset Manager Infrastructure Investment (Sydney), Colonial First State
- Frank Vromans, Director and Australian Head of Infrastructure (Brisbane), ARUP
Hood paid tribute to those of the nine standing directors who had decided not to renominate to make way for directors with more senior industry experience.
“I would like to thank the board members who did not renominate for their superb commitment and contribution to AGIC. Their leadership and input into the development of AGIC and the scheme concept over the past year as directors, and earlier on the Interim Steering Group, has been invaluable,” he said.
AGIC is a not-for-profit national industry association formed to establish a sustainability rating scheme for Australian infrastructure.
Working to achieve this goal, AGIC will support new ways to improve social, economic and environmental outcomes and enrich the quality of life for communities and industry employees.
The new directors will join the board in guiding the organisation towards securing crucial government funding and finalising the delivery of the AGIC sustainability rating tool.
