Ovarian Cancer appoints CEO

Wednesday, 27 May 2015


    Ovarian Cancer Australia has appointed Jane Hill FAICD as its new chief executive officer (CEO).

    Hill has over 20 years experience in the not-for-profit sector and is the former CEO of Fight Cancer Foundation. She joins Ovarian Cancer Australia from Stride Foundation where she was CEO for four years.

    Hill is currently a non-executive director at the Freemasons Foundation Victoria, one of two non-freemasons appointed to the board.

    Ovarian Cancer Australia has also recently appointed three new board members; Tracey Curro, head of SHK Executive Search’s communications and digital practice; Jo-Ann Hicks, director of strategy and corporate development at Mi9; and Sarah Adam-Gedge GAICD, corporate vice president and managing director at Avanade Australia.

    Virgin Australia has selected Caltex Australia chairman and Westpac director Elizabeth Bryan AM FAICD as the successor to long-serving chairman Neil Chatfield FAICD.

    Australia's second-largest airline has been searching for a new chair since Chatfield announced his intention to step down after seven years in the role. He was appointed as a Virgin director in May 2006. Just over a year later, he was appointed chair.

    Bryan, who is also a director of Insurance Australia Group, has previously been CEO of Deutsche Asset Management Australia and chair of UniSuper.

    Bryan was handed the reins from Chatfield on 20 May.
