The Directors of the Greater Sydney Partnership Limited announced today the appointment of Peter Holmes a Court as Founding Chairman.
The Greater Sydney Partnership is an independent, not-for-profit, limited company, with seed funding from the NSW State Government and other public and private sector stakeholders. The three founding partners are the Committee for Sydney, the Sydney Business Chamber and the Tourism & Transport Forum.
Greater Sydney Partnership Director Christopher Brown said the Partnership has grown out of eighteen months work researching the views, interests and ideas of stakeholders within Australia and around the world.
“Peter Holmes `a Court was a natural choice for the role of Chairman. Peter is both a passionate ambassador for Sydney, and a wonderful representation of our next generation of Australian leaders. He has a breadth of experience here and overseas as a business leader, an entrepreneur, an advisor to government and a community advocate,” Brown said.
“The new independent structure will ensure the significant work completed to-date will be allowed to flourish in an apolitical environment, exclusively focused around the interests of greater Sydney.”
The launch of the Greater Sydney Partnership will take place on 30th April at Carriageworks, Sydney.
