Peace Parks Foundation is proud to welcome Mr Neville Isdell (left) and Mr Gerhard Swiegers (right) to our board.
Mr Neville Isdell
Mr Isdell is the former chairman and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company where he worked for 43 years. He expanded on the company’s proud legacy of corporate responsibility by embedding sustainability throughout every facet of the organisation and helping ensure its role as a community-connected twenty-first century enterprise. These efforts resulted in The Coca-Cola Company’s return to Fortune’s “World’s 100 Most Admired Companies” list in 2006. In 2009, the company moved up to the #12 spot in the global ranking. Both Mr Isdell and his wife, Pamela, are Club 21 members and long-time supporters of Peace Parks.
Mr Gerhard Swiegers
Mr Swiegers is a trustee of various charitable trusts and director of a number of not-for-profit companies. He is an independent non-executive director at four organisations in which he serves as the chairperson for several committees. He is also the non-executive director and trustee of various family holding companies and trusts. With significant experience and expertise in a range of disciplines, including mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, investment evaluation, accounting and taxation in both the domestic and international arena, Mr Swiegers is adding great value to Peace Parks from both a business and technical perspective.
