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 served as chairman for much of the time since Everhard established a formal board in 1990. She will continue as a director of the company. 

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. 

“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 said. 

Beginning with two and three compartment concrete laundry tubs in 1926, Everhard – now based in Geebung, Brisbane – is a manufacturer, exporter, importer and distributor of polymer and concrete products primarily used in the plumbing, draining and construction industries.
