The Margule Groome team congratulates Rob de Fégely for receiving the prestigious N.W. Jolly Medal for outstanding services to forestry.
Rob’s career in forestry started in Bombala NSW and spanned a very diverse range of roles within the public and private sector, both nationally and internationally, with significant strategic and leadership roles. His is one of Australia’s most respected and well-known forestry consultants, with a reputation for integrity, professionalism, measured analysis and vision for a sustainable forestry sector.
The Medal was presented to Rob at this year’s joint Australia and New Zealand Institutes of Foresters (ANZIF) Conference in Christchurch.
The N.W. Jolly Medal is the Institute of Foresters of Australia’s highest and most prestigious honour for outstanding service to the profession of forestry. The Medal is named after Norman Jolly, a first-class cricketer and footballer. He was South Australia’s first Rhodes Scholar and became the first Australian to be trained as a forester studying at Balliol College, Oxford.
Previous recent recipients of the award include Dr Christine Stone (2017) and Dr Hans Drielsma (2015).
