Philanthropy Australia Expands its Reach
Tuesday, 2nd October 2012 at 11:47 am

Philanthropy Australia has appointed key staff in four states as part of a plan to strengthen its national footprint and broaden its financial base.

The move is part of the implementation of PA’s strategic plan and follows the appointment of Louise Walsh as the new CEO of Philanthropy Australia. 

In a message to members, Philanthropy Australia announced that Anna Draffin will join the team in Melbourne and Katy Tyrell in Sydney. Fiona Maxwell based in Brisbane, will expand the organisation's presence in Queensland and Alison Beare based in Adelaide, will establish a presence for Philanthropy Australia in South Australia.

“The immediate new funding for four additional positions would not have been possible without Louise's capacity to identify highly regarded staff and match them with significant new funding to accelerate implementation of the Strategic Plan and its key goals, “ Philanthropy Australia’s, President Bruce Bonyhady said.

“These staff will provide new organisational flexibility, which is something that Philanthropy Australia has lacked, and experience in growing philanthropy and specialist skills.

“The appointments are a major step towards implementation of the Strategic Plan. Council is excited by these developments which will enable Philanthropy Australia to grow and provide better services to its increasingly diverse Membership and to transform its contribution to the philanthropic sector and the Australian community.

“Louise Walsh will take up her new role as CEO on Monday 8th October, 2012 and will then begin a process of implementing the Strategic Plan including undertaking a review of existing resources and identifying what is further required to take the organisation forward, including for example in areas such as information technology,” Bonyhady said.

“The appointment of Louise Walsh as CEO presented Philanthropy Australia with a unique opportunity to build resources and immediately grow the organisation. This was a transformative opportunity, which demanded quick action, Council debated at length, and then acted decisively,” he said.
