Philanthropy Australia has announced the appointment of a new CEO, Louise Walsh, following the resignation of Dr Deborah Seifert. Walsh brings extensive corporate, government, not for profit and philanthropic leadership and planning experience to the role. Most recently, Walsh has been founding Director of Artsupport Australia, an initiative of the Australian Government agency, the Australia Council for the Arts, to grow cultural philanthropy. Following the Australian Government’s recent announcement of the future merger of Artsupport Australia and the Australia Business Arts Foundation (AbaF), Walsh will also be working closely with the Council of Philanthropy Australia to explore common areas of interest between Philanthropy Australia and the new arts entity as it takes shape.
