A promotions and comms specialist with experience in auditing has been appointed in the new marketing and communication at Responsible Wood. In addition to 10 years as a senior audit team leader and compliance officer with Sydney-based Global-Mark, Jonathan Tibbits has owned and operated a successful marketing and communications consultancy serving a wide variety of clients throughout Australia.
Jonathan replaces Jason Ross, who has stepped down to pursue other interests after four years of working with stakeholders to grow the awareness of the Responsible Wood and PEFC brands in Australia and New Zealand.
Jonathan holds a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice from the College of Law in Brisbane, a Bachelor of Laws (honors), and a Bachelor of International Business from Griffith University on the Gold Coast, Queensland and has admission as a legal practitioner to the Supreme Court of Queensland.
He grew up on the northwest coast of Tasmania and “feels at home in the bush.” He spent his summers while he was at university in Tasmania running a small forestry services business planting trees, collecting seeds, measuring trials, and applying nutrition.
“I’m excited about working with a great organisation to help grow the Responsible Wood and PEFC brands, and I’m looking forward to partnering with our certified forest managers and chain of custody clients to help further inform the general public and promote the benefits of sustainable forest and tree based products within their markets here in Australia, New Zealand and overseas.”
