Nonprofit trade association GSN Planet has appointed Michael Bruggeman, CEO and chief formulation officer for OM4 Organic Male + haia, and Helen Brown, principal of The H. Brown Group, to its board of directors.

The sustainability-centric organisation has also announced the promotion of Dara Mayhew to operations director and the appointment of Joanna Roche to the board (see full list of members below).
