The Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA) has appointed one of its founding directors, Seana Nkhahle, as its new chairman.

Nkhahle is an executive director at the South African Local Government Association (SALGA), responsible for corporate strategy and research. Prior to this he was the executive manager and national programmes coordinator at the South African Cities Network from 2005 to 2009. In both these roles he facilitated partnerships with selected municipalities to improve sustainability with particular emphasis on energy, water and land use management.

The chief executive officer of the GBCSA, Brian Wilkinson, says: “We are happy to welcome Seana Nkhahle on board as the council’s new chairman. He brings with him extensive experience in terms of sustainability knowledge in his academic work, as well as the work he has done in consulting and in local government.”

Commenting on his appointment, Nkhahle says he is looking forward to the opportunity of heading the board of the GBCSA and playing a meaningful role in transforming the building industry towards a greener future. The new chairperson’s goals are to consolidate the solid foundation that has been built by his predecessor, Bruce Kerswill, and to enhance the scope and reach of the council.
