Friday 5 Jul 2024

Rob de Fégely, co-founder and director of Margules Groome,  retired on 30 June 2024.

Rob’s career in consulting began in the 1980s when he joined Ray Margules, a pioneer in forestry consulting in Australia. Over the past four decades Rob undertook a countless number of consulting assignments for both the private sector in Australia and government with a keen interest in strategy and policy.

Apart from consulting in recent years Rob was appointed Chair of the Board of Sustainable Timber Tasmania (STT, formerly Forestry Tasmania), he is also an Advisory Board member of the Forestry Investment Trust of the Alberta Investment Management Corporation in Canada, and as a Board member of Forestry Corporation of New South Wales (FCNSW).

Rob has held several notable positions, including Chair of the Commonwealth Government’s Forest Industry Advisory Council (FIAC) from 2015 to 2023, National President of Forestry Australia (formerly the Institute of Foresters of Australia) from 2012 to 2017, and Non-Executive Director of VicForests from 2012 to 2015. He was the founding Chair of Cape York Timber, an indigenous-based sawmilling enterprise in far north Queensland. Furthermore, he has advised Greening Australia, the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, and the NSW Natural Resources Commission. With over 40 years of experience, Rob has worked on projects across Australia and throughout most of the Asia-Pacific region.

Throughout his career, Rob has been passionate about promoting sustainable forestry practices and advocating for the forestry profession. He has also contributed to the education and training of future forestry professionals and capacity building within the sector.

The team at Margules Groome wishes to thank Rob for his invaluable contributions to the business and the broader forestry sector in Australia. Rob, we hope your retirement is filled with happiness, adventure, and plenty of time to enjoy all the things you love.
