– Thor Holm
Nonprofit trade association GSN Planet has appointed Michael Bruggeman, CEO and chief formulation officer for OM4 Organic Male + haia, and Helen Brown, principal of The H. Brown Group, to its board of directors.

The sustainability-centric organisation has also announced the promotion of Dara Mayhew to operations director and the appointment of Joanna Roche to the board (see full list of members below).

These changes follow a strategic planning process that will streamline operations and support GSN Planet's continued growth trajectory.

Additionally, Maggy Dunphy is now president, with Nicole Lampsa serving as vice president, Roche serving as treasurer and Suzy Jolphs serving as secretary, all of whom were nominated and voted on unanimously as officers starting 1 March 2023.

Thor Holm, who served as the previous president, will continue to serve on the board.

Holm commented: “We’re excited about what lies ahead. Our partnership with board member Charne La Roux and the development of our sustainability app, certification discussions, and a more global approach, will help us make significant progress during this crucial time for the planet and our industry.

“I’d like to recognise Joanna Roche for her stewardship of the organisation for these past five years and through Covid and we’re looking forward to working with her in her new role.”
