GECA CEO to depart

GECA announces departure of CEO after more than four years in the role. 

Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) has announced the departure of CEO Kate Harris after more than four years in the role.

Board chair Patrick Walker said Harris, who is moving to Canberra to focus on family and spend time at her 17-acre farm in the Yass Valley, has been an influencer and passionate advocate for sustainability.

“On behalf of the board and whole GECA team, I would like to thank Kate for her passion and determination to promote sustainable production and consumption, and for our mission at GECA.

“Kate has built a wonderful team and has expanded our range of offerings to help make it easier for buyers to make sustainable choices. She has also been an influencer and passionate advocate for sustainability during her time with us,” Walker said.

Harris said she is proud of what she has achieved during her four-year tenure.

“We are delivering critical and relevant sustainable supply chain solutions across multiple sectors and for diverse stakeholders. We continue to go from strength to strength and have a strong reputation within the industry of the built environment and beyond.

“We have moved beyond “environmental” issues alone and are now able to verify manufacturers claims in relation to the circular economy, modern slavery, carbon and much more,” Harris said.

Harris will remain at GECA until 31 January, 2020. General manager Michelle Thomas will be appointed interim CEO while a recruitment process takes place for a replacement.
