“I was taught that food should never be wasted”
I grew up with European parents who had both experienced real, prolonged hunger and not knowing where the next meal was coming from during WWII. As a result, I was taught that food should never be wasted and that the availability of food should never be taken for granted.

“I was shocked at the poverty in our ‘lucky’ country”
I produce food for a living and it still makes me so angry when I see it wasted. I love the thought of reducing waste or putting it to good use. When I got involved in Foodbank, I was shocked at the poverty in our ‘lucky’ country and felt I had to do something.

“I wanted the opportunity to give something back”
As a father of three boys I couldn’t conceive of sending them to school hungry, yet that is the fact for so many families. I was shocked at the extent of the issue of hunger, so when I retired from a full time executive role, I wanted the opportunity to give something back.

“I want to use my skillsets where they matter”
I grew up in a single-parent household. My mum raised two girls and often worked three jobs to make ends meet. I now count myself lucky to be in such a fortunate position, so I hope that I can use my people and culture expertise to help Foodbank nurture a strong and purpose-driven workforce that continues to grow well into the future.
