Official announcement

Our ECOllaboration Board is delighted to announce the appointment of Tracey Tucker as the new Chief Executive Officer.
With over 25 years’ experience in environmental management and leadership, Tracey is a passionate advocate for sustainability, intergenerational equity, community stewardship, and social awareness.
She holds extensive qualifications in environmental management, health and safety, sustainability, and teaching.
Tracey’s strategic leadership and strong communication skills have been the driving force behind her successful career. She has held senior and executive roles in various industries, including mining, public infrastructure, education, and disability sectors and has demonstrated her ability to lead and develop teams, manage complex projects, and foster meaningful connections with stakeholders.
Tracey’s experience highlights her dedication to making a positive impact across diverse communities, a quality that will undoubtedly benefit ECOllaboration and its stakeholders.
The Board is confident that Tracey’s innovative approach and strategic problem-solving skills will drive ECOllaboration’s goals forward, building on the strong foundation set by our departing CEO, Jacqui Atique.
With Tracey at the helm, we are confident that ECOllaboration will continue to thrive and expand its impact on the Sunshine Coast, the Scenic Rim, and the Fraser Coast. We are excited about the positive changes Tracey will bring to our organisation and the communities we serve, and we look forward to a future filled with new opportunities and growth.
