Three new members have been appointed to the Centennial Park and Moore Park Trust, bringing experience in corporate communications, finance, governance and marketing to the Trust, Environment and Heritage Minister Gabrielle Upton announced today.

The three appointees, Caroline Gurney, Brian Long and Nicholas Davie, join the board for two-year terms.

“Centennial Parklands is not only one of Australia's best known and loved Parklands, but one of its most historic. These three appointees bring extensive experience and skills to the Trust and I look forward to the contribution they will make to the Parklands,” Ms Upton said.

Ms Gurney is currently on a number of boards, including Our Watch and a member of the UNSW Medicine Advisory Council and an ambassador for the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation. She is also Managing Director, Head of Marketing and Corporate Communications Australasia and Deputy Chief Communication Officer Asia Pacific at UBS and a member of the UBS Australia Foundation.

Mr Long has extensive experience in audit and risk management, financial acumen, governance and university and research infrastructure. He is the Director of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Chairman of the company’s audit committee.

Mr Davie is the former Managing Partner of Publicis Mojo, a marketing and advertising agency, Co-Chair of Bestest charity, founder of a data analytics company and a former council member of the National Museum of Australia.

“The Trust plays a vital role in preserving the history and heritage of the Parklands which attracts more than 25 million visits every year,” Ms Upton Said.

The Centennial Park and Moore Park Trust, which includes Centennial Park, Moore Park and Queens Park, covers 360-hectares, including the Entertainment Quarter, Fox Studios, Hordern Pavilion and the Royal Hall of Industries.

The Trust is responsible for the long-term strategic planning and operational management of the Parklands.
