Chief Executive Officer
Role: Carole has been the Chief Executive Officer with Terrain since 2010, having worked with the organisation since 2008. Carole’s role as CEO is to work with the Board staff and community to deliver outcomes against Terrain’s Strategic Plan and the Wet Tropics Regional Natural Resource Management (NRM) Plan. She works to foster a strong team base that is innovative, adaptive and accountable to ensure outstanding, effective and credible management of Terrain’s business and NRM delivery.
Background: Carole has worked in natural resource and environmental management for more than 25 years. This has spanned roles in state and local government, the not for profit sector and community based natural resource management in Cambodia. She has a Bachelor of Science and has spent most of her career working with community and landholders to help negotiate good land management outcomes. Carole and her family love the tropics and made a permanent move here ten years ago, after many years of “commuting” between Melbourne and Bingil Bay building (and rebuilding after two cyclones) their rainforest retreat.
