The Macquarie Group Foundation Committee (the Committee) comprises senior executives who bring specific areas of expertise and experience. Committee members represent various business groups and Macquarie’s four regions and are involved in a range of different community organisations.
As well as meeting regularly to assess funding applications, review the Foundation's activities and set and monitor strategy, Committee members also act as champions of the 50th Anniversary Award projects and sub-committees which guide our strategic direction.
In FY2021, Mary Reemst announced that Bruce Phipson would succeed Tony Graham. Tony joined the Committee in April 2014 and has been an enthusiastic member since then, always generously contributing his support and ideas. Tony hands the reins to Bruce Phipson, Chief Operating Officer of Macquarie’s Banking and Financial Services group. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Tony for his tremendous contribution over the past seven years, and welcome Bruce to the Committee.
In the year ahead, Verena Lim will succeed Ben Way as the Head of Asia representative on the Committee, and Alex Harvey, Macquarie Group’s Chief Financial Officer, will step in as Chair of the Committee when Mary Reemst retires from the role in early 2022.
