Roly leads our Foundation team, supporting social purpose organisations in making a difference to the lives of both Australian and International communities.
Roly is passionate about Australia’s creative and cultural life and his career reflects that. He was a senior executive at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and most recently at the State Library Victoria where he was the CFO and COO. Perhaps his greatest achievement though has been keeping Tom and Hamish on the straight and narrow for over four decades!
As a lifelong learner, Roly is devoted to not only building his skills but also to coaching and supporting others. Surrounded by some of the world’s most remarkable change makers, Roly describes his experience of completing his Masters in Public Administration from Harvard University as life changing – “to be able to bring best in class ideas, operational models and strategy back to the local market excites me everyday”
When not working and studying, you’ll find Roly on the tennis court, the golf course or running (slowly) along Melbourne’s beaches.
