BUSH Heritage Australia is pleased to announce the appointment of Heather Campbell as its new chief executive.
Heather will commence her role in early January 2019.
She brings with her a wealth of knowledge across the science, environment and not-for-profit sectors. Her most recent role has been at the CSIRO, as director of health, safety and environment. She is a former chief executive of Landcare Australia, is the current chair of Sustainability Victoria and has an environmental engineering background and extensive private sector risk management experience.
Bush Heritage president Chris Grubb said Heather’s experience made her a stand-out candidate.
“We had a very strong field of applicants for the role and the board is confident that Heather has the right skill-set to build on the strong foundations Bush Heritage has put in place under Gerard O’Neill’s leadership,” Chris said.
“Heather inherently understands the many facets of Bush Heritage across our core business of conservation and science as well as the nuances of our fundraising channels, Aboriginal partnerships and agreements with landholders and pastoralists.”
