Ms Todd said that she was drawn to GHD due to its passionate attitudes and mission towards “sustainability and corporate social responsibility” and the level of diversity within its global board and leadership teams.

“In addition, the employee-owned structure, which I believe drives a positive and invested culture, is a key differentiator for an organisation of this scale. I am excited to be supporting GHD’s directors, officers, employee shareholders and the wider teams around the globe,” she continued.
