The Board of Directors of beyondblue have unanimously elected Julia Gillard as Chair, commencing 1 July 2017. Julia takes the reins from current Chair and Founder, Jeff Kennett.
Mr Kennett founded beyondblue in 2000 and has led the organisation with energy and commitment for 17 years as it became a world leader in raising awareness of depression, anxiety and suicide prevention.
Julia is delighted that Jeff and the board have had the confidence in her to take over as Chair of an organisation that has made such a difference in the lives of so many Australians. Julia is excited about taking up the position later this year and contributing to Beyond Blue’s vital work.
