Connecting Southern Gold Coast has had a changing of the guard, with new Chair Greg Jenke taking over the reigns from Anne Stovin, who has resigned from the Board ahead of taking 12 months leave from her role as CEO of Currumbin RSL.
As CEO of John Flynn Private Hospital and a strong advocate for the Southern Gold Coast, Greg has stepped up to the role and will bring his revered business acumen and organisational management to lead CSGC into its next chapter.
“We thank outgoing Chair Anne Stovin for her fantastic leadership since July 2016 and wish her a wonderful year ahead and all the best for a bright future,” said Mr Jenke.
“We also say thank you and farewell to outgoing Director, Warwick Chesters, who has served on the Board since April 2014. Warwick’s legal voice has been invaluable to the organisation, and we wish him all the best with his busy legal firm based on the Southern Gold Coast at Tugun.”
Two new Directors have joined the Board to replace the outgoing Directors. Jason Thomas, Director of Destinations & Corporate Partnerships with Gold Coast Tourism and Tourism Events Queensland and Geoff Smith, well known Gold Coast lawyer and Chairman of Sports Gold Coast will both add their significant expertise and enthusiasm to the organisation and the region.
