Greenlife Industry Australia Appoints New CEO

Earlier this year, the Board of Greenlife Industry Australia (GIA) made a very important decision - to seek a new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). These decisions are incredibly important for any organisation, and they are inextricably linked to their shared vision for the future of the industry.

In the months that followed, the Board engaged a highly reputable executive recruitment agency in a global search. After an exhaustive selection process, GIA President, Glenn Fenton, is very pleased to announce that Ms Joanna Cave will be GIA's new CEO.

Ms Cave has over 25 years’ experience as a CEO and brings both international and Australian CEO experience to the industry. She has led various peak bodies, membership bodies and non-profits with a successful track record of taking organisations into new eras. In addition, she is a qualified horticulturist and passionate gardener.

“GIA occupies a unique and important position in Australian horticulture. I am absolutely delighted to be offered this opportunity to lead GIA at the crucial stage in its history and to build on its achievements to date” said Ms Cave, who is looking forward to meeting GIA’s members.

Over the next couple of months, Ms Cave will balance the completion of her existing contractual obligations with attendance at key GIA and member activities, before commencing full time in late January 2022. The Board would like to congratulate her on the appointment, and they look forward to working with her and her team in the future.
