Tom joined SBC as a Board Member in our first year of operations and was instrumental in planning and delivering the Annual Green Building Festival. Part of that responsibility included building the content and securing some of the most knowledgeable and passionate speakers in the green building sector. Tom’s dedication to ensuring the Festival was both informative and entertaining helped to inspire the more than 5,000 people that have attended the Festival over the past 17 years. Tom is looking forward to new travel adventures which will include visiting potential GBFest projects in the future!
SBC extends our heartfelt thanks to Leith and Tom for all their efforts and wishes them both all the best for the future.
