Shari joined the Foresters team in 2011 as the Organisational Finance Manager for the newly initiated business unit. Shari has over 15 years experience in senior positions in non-profit, fund management and property companies in both Australia and the UK. These roles have ranged from launching new social enterprise programs, providing finance and advisory services to non-profits and social enterprises, providing strategic property investment advice and responsibility for fund management of portfolios of institutional property.
Shari enjoys her current role at Foresters leading the team to enable social enterprises and non-profits reach their potential through providing access to appropriate finance.
Darren has been working in the finance industry for over 15 years. Starting out with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) where he obtained his chartered accounting qualification, he then moved to their Dubai office to work on delivering process improvement and business re-engineering projects for some of Dubai’s larger businesses.
After a long stint as the CFO of a U.A.E. based bank, Darren returned to Australia to work for Suncorp for a number of years before leaving to start his own businesses. Wanting to leverage his business and strategy skills for social good, Darren decided to re-enter the finance industry to assist local communities and social enterprises meet their vision.
