Business Leaders Join Volunteer NFP Board
Monday, 2nd December 2013 at 9:29 am

An Australian Not for Profit international development organisation has appointed two business leaders to its board.

Raymond Jones and Linda Echentille have joined the Australian Business Volunteers board as board directors, replacing Jonathan Pinshaw and Professor Bruce Young. Board director Des Walsh was also reappointed.

Jones was Australian Managing Director for QBE Insurance for 12 years and was the President of the Insurance Council and a Board Member of the Ombudsman Scheme. He is currently a non-executive Director of RACQ Insurance, and on the Advisory Boards of CAS Compliance and Investigations, and Taurus Marketing.

Echentille is a business consultant, project specialist, author and marketing strategist with more than 20 years experience within the Not for Profit sector in Australia and internationally.  

Newly appointed Chairperson of the ABV Board of Directors, Fiona Jolly, said the appointment of Echentille, who has completed 14 volunteer assignments with ABV, along with the reappointment of Walsh will ensure the interests of ABV’s volunteers and members continue to be represented.

“Ray and Linda are proven leaders and will bring outstanding commercial and third sector experience to strengthen the Board and contribute to the goals of the organisation,” Jolly said.

Jones, Echentille, Walsh and Jolly join Ross Johnston and Sarah-Jane Christensen on the ABV board.

“I am delighted by the accumulated breadth and depth of business, international development and volunteering experience on the Board,” Jolly said.

ABV is a Not for Profit international development organisation that develops business volunteering programs in accordance with the belief that the private sector is the engine for economic growth, which can alleviate poverty by contributing to job creation and higher incomes.
