The foundation hopes to forge closer ties with Ibicenco community through new appointments
Ibiza, 05/12/22 – IbizaPreservation today announced the appointment of three new trustees, including two Ibicenco businessmen and a British expert in brand strategy.
At its quarterly meeting on 25th November, the governing body of the environmental foundation voted unanimously in favour of appointing Marcos Marí Washbourne, Marc Rahola Matutes and Al Parker to its Board of Trustees. “We are pleased to welcome these three entrepreneurs, all highly committed to our mission of building a more sustainable future for Ibiza and Formentera. We are sure they will all have much to contribute with their extensive experience and knowledge,” said Philip Muelder, president of IbizaPreservation.
Marc Rahola, CEO and founder of OD Group, said that “for an Ibicenco to preserve Ibiza is an obligation and I am convinced that, as a trustee of IbizaPreservation, I will be able to help raise awareness among Ibicencos and promote sustainability as a one of the pillars of our generation.”
Marcos Marí, vice president of the Insotel Group and CEO of Trasmapi, concurred, saying, “It is our shared responsibility not to improve the environment of our islands and seas that give us so much, and our duty to care for it and work together to achieve this.”
For his part, Al Parker, creative director and brand strategist, emphasised that he will contribute his more than 25 years of experience to help increase the positive impact of the foundation. “We have an exciting opportunity to develop our digital communication, collaborations and live events to build an engaged, inspired and informed community around all the impressive projects we are leading on the islands,” acknowledged Parker.
With the addition of Parker, Marí and Rahola, the Board of Trustees of the foundation will now be 10 people strong: president Philip Muelder, co-founders Serena Cook and William Aitken, plus Frances Llopis, Liam Strong, John Frieda and Jeremy Smith.
At the next meeting of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees, scheduled for early February, the 2022 accounts will be approved, along with the strategic plan and budget for 2023.
