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.”
