Mr Greg Mair was recently appointed the new Chairperson of GSCORE’s Board of Directors.
Greg is the South Coast Regional Manager for the Parks and Wildlife Service of the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions. He has had a long career with State government agencies and has had postings in Walpole, Kirup, Manjimup, Busselton and Bunbury. While the area manager at Walpole Greg was a member of the project team involved in the development of the Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk.
A passionate advocate for outdoor recreation activities, Greg has been actively involved in athletics and yachting and has State and National achievements in both sports. He was the Commodore of the Walpole Yacht Club and Secretary of the Geographe Bay Sailing Club at Busselton. These days the fitness pursuit is more aligned to walking the many trails around Albany.
“I strongly believe that getting people out into the natural environment has beneficial outcomes for both their well-being and their greater appreciation, respect and valuing of it”, he said.
Greg replaces outgoing Chairperson, Ms Angela Simpson. “Angela played a key role in the establishment of GSCORE as the inaugural Chairperson. Her work on the Board has contributed to the success of the organisation and has undoubtedly placed us in a strong position to achieve the goals and initiatives outlined in our Strategic Plan,” Greg said.
“I look forward to continuing to work with my fellow Directors to achieve our vision of making the Great Southern region Western Australia’s premier adventure destination.”
