The Governance Institute of Australia has named Catherine Maxwell as its new director of policy and advocacy.
Ms Maxwell has formerly held senior roles with APRA, the ASX and AICD, and has “considerable experience” as a company secretary, said Governance Institute chief executive Steven Burrell.
“Catherine has a strong record in delivering a range of policy, business and change management projects and is a valuable addition to the Governance Institute team,” Mr Burrell said.
“She is particularly well placed to prosecute our policy and advocacy agenda.”
Mr Burrell also said Ms Maxwell has a “long-standing” relationship with the Governance Institute that will be beneficial to the role, noting she has worked the group as a fellow, a course director and a presenter for the group’s short courses and in-house training.
