Jonathan Starling has been appointed as Greenrock’s Executive Director, with the organisation saying they “believe he has the skills, experience and qualifications to be an asset to Greenrock in this role.”
“Jonathan has outstanding qualifications for the role, with hands on experience with Bermuda’s natural environment through conservation research at BIOS and the Bermuda Biodiversity Project; academic qualifications in biology, anthropology, ecological economics and urban and regional planning; and experience working on social and economic research in the UK with Forest Research and the Scottish Government,” the latest Greenrock newsletter said.
“We believe he has the skills, experience and qualifications to be an asset to Greenrock in this role. He will be starting immediately, with his first official engagement being the Green Building Forum on November 3rd.”
Mr Starling said, “I would like to thank the Board for placing their faith in me with this important position and providing me with a terrific opportunity to give back to the community using the skills and experiences I’ve gained.
“I would also like to thank my predecessors in this position, Gordon Johnson and Bonnie McGlynn. They have been excellent stewards and leave some big shoes for me to fill!
“We all have an important role to play in the challenge of creating a more sustainable community, and we all have the ability to contribute, either through joining or supporting Greenrock and its programmes and projects, or in our daily lives.
“I look forward to working with Greenrock’s many partners among the third sector, business and Government in meeting the challenge of sustainability for our island and in our time.
“I also look forward to meeting personally with all of Greenrock’s members, volunteers, supporters and donors as soon as I am able to do so, and I encourage anyone interested in contributing to Bermuda’s sustainability to get in contact with me at Greenrock.”
