Welcome to our incoming CEO

Kate is transitioning from her role as CEO of the Financial Executives Association (FEI), a member association for Chief Financial Officers and finance executives. In that role Kate has overseen a strong period of growth for the association in terms of new members and developing new revenue streams as well as growing the profile of the organisation. 


Kate said the Foundation represents a great initiative and commitment on the issue of youth homelessness from the property and construction industry.  


“The Foundation has a great brand and has done extraordinary work over the past 20 years in building homes to reduce youth homelessness, she said. 


I am looking forward to working with the Foundation and the broader industry to increase the impact that we have on young lives.
