New CEO for The Reach Foundation
Monday, 10th August 2015 at 11:28 am

The Not for Profit organisation established by AFL legend Jim Stynes and film director Paul Currie, The Reach Foundation, has revealed who will be taking over the reins as CEO.

Boxing Day Tsunami survivor and current Reach board member, Trisha Squires, will officially take over as CEO in September this year.

Squires, whose husband Troy Broadbridge was killed in the tsunami while they were on their honeymoon, will replace Sarah Davies, who is moving to Philanthropy Australia to be their new CEO.

Reach Chairman, Geoff Roberts, said there had been an extensive search for Davies’ replacement and many people had put their hands up for the position.

“It is very exciting that the search for Reach’s CEO attracted such fierce competition, which is testament to Reach’s strong brand and reputation,” Roberts said.

“After an extensive and rigorous recruitment process involving the Board, Crew (workshop leaders), Staff and Co-founder, Paul Currie, it was decided that Trisha Squires is the best person to take up the reins and lead Reach as our new CEO into our next Hero’s Journey.”

Roberts said as one of the very first “Reach-kids”, Squires has lived Reach’s vision for young people. He said after her recent marriage and the birth of her daughter, the CEO appointment came at a good time for Squires.

Squires brings has experience across commercial, philanthropic and community roles, and has prior CEO experience. She is also a past winner of the Young Australian of the Year.

Roberts said he had no doubts about Squires’ passion for and commitment to Reach’s mission and purpose.

“The search was not only for a CEO, but also for someone who could act as a custodian for the vision, mission and essence of Reach. On behalf of the whole Board, Staff and Crew, we are very excited to welcome her as our CEO,” he said.

Roberts said Sarah Davies, who is leaving after four years as Reach’s CEO to take the role of CEO at Philanthropy Australia, worked hard to make sure the organisation lived on after Jim Styne’s passed away.
