This is not a blitz endorsement, it’s a fogdog endorsement. I am posting this to ask and encourage all eligible voters to please vote for Paul Brasher in the upcoming board election.
For those that aren’t aware, Paul is the current deputy chair to Paul Little and I would say he has played a crucial role in taking control and reforming the governance issues at the club. In fact I would be confident that we could attribute a lot of the changes to Paul. For those that saw Paul’s speech at the members forum, you would have heard that Essendon now lead the way in governance.
Paul has the skills, experience and leadership required to continue to drag us out of the mess we found ourselves in a few years ago. Those experiences include being a partner in the accounting and professional services firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers from 1982 to 2009. He chaired the Australian firm and was chairman of the global Board of PWC from 2005 to 2009 and was a partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers (and its predecessor firm, Price Waterhouse), one of the world’s major chartered accounting and professional services firms, including five years as the Chairman of the Global Board of PricewaterhouseCoopers. Paul is a former Chairman of the Reach Foundation, and of the National Gallery of Victoria’s Business Council, Paul is a non-executive director of Amcor Limited, a former member of the Committee for Melbourne, a former board member of Asialink and a former trustee of the Victorian Arts Centre Trust and the Committee for Economic Development of Australia.
This thread is not to compare him to other candidates or to criticise their nominations, however, I will say Paul Brasher’s experiences are priceless and too valuable to ignore.
Please, please vote for Paul Brasher.
