THE Pacific Islands Private Sector Organisation (PIPSO) is banking on the experience of newly-appointed alternate board member, Bruce Saunders, to take it further into the future.

Mr Saunders, an Australian citizen who has lived in the Solomon Islands since 1968, has managed the family business, BJS Group of Companies.

His business has operated in the Solomon Islands for 40 years and provides services which include insurance, real estate services, property management, packing and removal, Customs and clearing, scrap metal recycling, and event management.

"Mr Saunders joins the board with a wealth of experience having served over many years in the Solomon Islands Chamber of Commerce and is the vice-chairman," a PIPSO statement said.

"He served on various bodies like the Tourist Authority, Central Bank of the Solomon Islands, City Council, Town and Country Planning Board and Civil Society Network.

"Apart from being a successful businessman, Mr Saunders is involved in community work through his membership in Rotary and the Lions Club."

In June 2012, he was named on the Queen's Birthday Honour List and awarded a knighthood for service to business and community development.
