Two new directors including a local lawyer and business success coach have been formally appointed to the Board of the Buderim Foundation at the organisation’s Annual General Meeting held recently.
Paul Kusy from My Legal Group and Rebecca Ramsay from Clear Light Capital join ten current directors and replace retiring directors – John Kruger and Lisa Edwards.
In announcing the new appointments, convener of the panel of Members responsible for their selection, Mr. Rod McKinnon said each of the new directors has an acknowledged track record of success and achievement in their respective fields.
“They each bring a great deal to their new roles adding further breadth and depth to this outstanding community organisation,” Mr McKinnon said.
“It’s a significant development in the Foundation’s evolution and I’m confident they will make a great contribution to the next phase of growth.
“I would like to acknowledge the exceptional contribution by both former Chair of our Grants Committee, Lisa Edward and resident lawyer, John Kruger. Collectively, they have volunteered in many and various roles for the Buderim Foundation for more than eight years.”
