Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) has welcomed Patrick Walker as its new chair.
Walker has been a member of the GECA board of directors for more than four years, as well as being chair of GECA’s business development committee.
He is also the CEO of the Australian Sports Foundation, a not-for-profit that raises money for community and grassroots sport.
Walker has previously worked as a senior member of the PricewaterhouseCoopers leadership team and leadership council.
“This is an exciting time to be taking on the role of chair,” said Walker.
“GECA has an important role to play in fostering sustainable consumption, and the Board, CEO and GECA team are all passionate about making a real difference to the behaviour of producers and consumers in the years ahead.”
Walker will take over from Gordon Renouf, who joined the board of GECA in 2009 and has served as chair for the past six years.
Renouf will remain on the GECA Board as a non-executive director while he continues his work with other not-for-profit and social business ventures, such as the ethical brand ratings app Good On You, of which he is CEO and co-founder.
“I’m delighted that GECA is expanding the scope of its activities under the umbrella of fostering sustainable production and consumption, and equally delighted with the progress the team has achieved under the leadership of CEO Kate Harris.”
