The Walkley Foundation has announced
several changes to its leadership team:
Louisa Graham to step down as Chief Executive:
Chief Executive, Louisa Graham, will step down from the role when her contract ends later this year. Louisa has worked for the Walkley Foundation for almost 10 years, first as General Manager and then as Chief Executive for the past four years. The organisation has now begun the recruitment process for a replacement Chief Executive, with announcements expected later this year.
Michael Brissenden appointed Judging Board Chair:
Michael Brissenden has been appointed Chair of the Walkley Judging Board, effective immediately. This follows Lenore Taylor's decision to step down from the role. Michael is a two-time Walkley Award-winning Journalist who worked as a political and foreign correspondent for the ABC for more than three decades. He was most recently a Reporter on Four Corners until his retirement earlier this year.
