Fourth-generation Davis-Boyce family member, Gina Boyce-Rowe, has been appointed Chairman of the Board of the 96-year-old Queensland family company, Everhard Industries.

Gina takes over from her mother, Sue Boyce, the granddaughter and great-niece of the company’s founders, Fred and Alf Davis. 

Sue has been in the role for much of the time since Everhard established a formal Board in 1990.

Gina, who has a background in critical care nursing, has been formally involved in the company’s operations and governance since 2015. 

Gina undertook formal business education and an executive director traineeship working in every area of Everhard. She was involved in the recruitment of the current CEO, Moira Harris, and will continue to work closely with Moira in her new role. 

Sue said, “As we approach our 100th year, I’m absolutely delighted that Gina and her brother Bede, an executive director of Everhard’s holding company, are committed to continuing Everhard as a family business and that our succession planning has come to fruition.” 

Sue will continue as a director of the company. 

Everhard began in 1926 making two and three compartment concrete laundry tubs. Now based at Geebung in Brisbane, the company is a manufacturer, exporter, importer and distributor of polymer and concrete products primarily used in the plumbing, draining and construction industries.
