The Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure has appointed Jane Niles and Mark Palfrey as non-voting members.
Over her 20-year career in banking, Mrs Niles has specialised in supporting executive boards of housing, energy and infrastructure companies, giving her a broad understanding of many of the main responsibilities within the Committee's mandate.
Mr Palfrey is the former Managing Director of a large construction company in the Channel Islands and was also the Chairman of a facilities management company, providing him with a good understanding of local property development and construction.
Deputy Lindsay de Sausmarez, President of the Committee, said:
"I'd like to thank all those who took the time to apply for these non-voting roles. The applications showed a great range and depth of expertise and interest in serving the community on the Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure. We are obviously delighted with the experience of the two successful applicants and the relevance of their commercial knowledge to our mandate, whether that's on housing, energy, the environment or our broader island infrastructure. I'm confident that they will be of great benefit to our Committee and ultimately to our community as they serve as non-voting members."
Mrs Niles and Mr Palfrey will attend their first committee meeting this month.
Non-voting members of a Committee have the same rights and duties as ordinary members, other than the right to vote unless this is outlined in a Committee's constitution.
