GIA CEO steps down
After more than six years with Greenlife Industry Australia (GIA) and its predecessor Nursery & Garden Industry Australia, the Board and Peter Vaughan have agreed it is time for a change of leadership at GIA, and Peter has resigned as Chief Executive Officer effective 30 September 2021.
After managing the transition from NGIA to GIA and the formative period of GIA’s operation over the last two years, it is time to look to the future for the national nursery industry peak body. The industry is in good shape with the last three years of sales value growth being 6% year on year and GIA addressing the key strategic areas around Advocacy, Promotion, Sustainability and Careers. However, there are several key challenges that must be addressed to ensure the industry is prepared and protected into the future.
The Board will commence a recruitment process in the next few weeks.
