Ovarian Cancer appoints CEO

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.
