Simon Wild has been announced as a finalist for the Richard Pratt – Banksia CEO Award - Australia’s leading change agent category at this year’s Banksia Awards.

Now in its 25th year, The Banksia Foundation is firmly cemented as Australia's preeminent organisation recognising and promoting innovative sustainable development and practice through their Awards Program. The CEO category recognises an individual executive's contribution towards the economic, social or environmental sustainability achievements of the organisation or company they work for and which has collateral benefits for the globe.

“I am delighted to be shortlisted in such a prestigious award’ Explains Simon “We are celebrating our tenth year in Australia so to be shortlisted for this award is an awesome birthday present”

In 2003 Simon started the first international Cundall office in Sydney, and quickly expanded to four offices across Australia and leading the Cundall group to becoming one of the largest sustainable design consultants in the built environment across Australia. In 2007 Simon opened the Shanghai office and 2008 in Hong Kong, taking the sustainable design strength of the Australian team into the Asian market. Simon now leads Cundall in the Asia Pacific region, as well as being a thought leader, motivator and avid communicator of sustainability in the property industry across the Asia Pacific.

As grandson of an inventor, change and creativity has always been in Simon's blood. In his early career this creativity came through engineering design solutions and pushing the boundaries of sustainable design. Simon is driven by the need to do more with less, to live within the means of one planet and to create behavioural change around sustainability. He believes that this can be achieved through focusing on not only the efficient use of resources but also the productive use of resources - achieving more output with fewer resources.

Simon has a regular blog which covers a diverse range of subjects in relation to sustainability click here to read.
