Non-Executive Officer

Over the past 15 years Angus has been a non-executive director and Chair of various philanthropic, not-for-profit and private investment Boards.

Two of these with connections to OBA over the years are the Vincent Fairfax Family Foundation (VFFF) and The Mundango Charitable Trust.  He is also Chair of the Vincent Fairfax Ethics in Leadership Foundation, funding a national ethical leadership program for pathmaking Australian executives.

His professional life has always pivoted on community, education and access, including with Australian Red Cross for several years in youth education, and then international operations in refugee and asylum seeker liaison. He enjoys seeing people embrace opportunities and thrive. 

Having completed three Outward Bound Australia courses, Angus has personal insight into these challenging and rewarding experiences. His 26-day standard course in far North Queensland in 1992 was significantly attitudinal-changing at a transformative time in his life.

Stronger and inspired, he went on to become a qualified outdoor adventure education instructor himself, working for three years in England and NSW. His family have multi-generational involvement in Outward Bound, both as participants and donors.

He has degrees in commerce and teaching, and is a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
