Two new directors including a local lawyer and business success coach have been formally appointed to the Board of the Buderim Foundation at the organisation’s Annual General Meeting held recently.

Paul Kusy from My Legal Group and Rebecca Ramsay from Clear Light Capital join ten current directors and replace retiring directors - John Kruger and Lisa Edwards.

In announcing the new appointments, convener of the panel of Members responsible for their selection, Mr. Rod McKinnon said each of the new directors has an acknowledged track record of success and achievement in their respective fields.

“They each bring a great deal to their new roles adding further breadth and depth to this outstanding community organisation,” Mr McKinnon said.

“It’s a significant development in the Foundation’s evolution and I’m confident they will make a great contribution to the next phase of growth.

“I would like to acknowledge the exceptional contribution by both former Chair of our Grants Committee, Lisa Edward and resident lawyer, John Kruger. Collectively, they have volunteered in many and various roles for the Buderim Foundation for more than eight years.”

Paul Kusy has more than 25 years’ experience as a commercial, business and property lawyer. He has lived in Buderim since 1999.

Mr Kusy previously served for over 10 years as a director for the Queensland not for profit organisation, Community Solutions Group Limited. He has also served as a committee member for RADF (Regional Arts Development Fund) for the Sunshine Coast Regional Council and as the secretary of the Mooloolaba Chamber of Commerce.

An experienced business owner and coach, Rebecca Ramsay is a vibrant communicator skilled in motivating and evolving leaders through dynamic coaching and development.

Ms Ramsay’s business experience combined with her keen focus on personal and professional development, allows her a unique approach to assisting business in identifying improvement opportunities for both people and systems. She is the Chair of the Buderim Foundation’s Grants Committee.

The Buderim Foundation is a philanthropic organisation whose purpose is to strengthen the Buderim community by harnessing the power of giving. It does this by receiving donations and bequests, carefully investing the funds to generate income and distributing the income as grants to organisations that provide services to Buderim.
