Philanthropy Australia has announced Jack Heath as its new CEO, commencing January 2021. Health joins PA after serving for eight years as CEO of SANE Australia, a leading national mental health charity. He succeeds current CEO Sarah Davies.
‘Our Board was inspired by Jack’s vision for philanthropy in Australia and the strong alignment with our organisation’s values and aspirations. Philanthropy has been a constant and critical thread in the growth and achievements of all organisations Jack has led,’ said PA Co-Chairs Amanda Miller and Ann Johnson.
Commenting on his appointment, Heath said: ‘I believe there has never been a more important time for philanthropy in Australia and I am honoured to have the opportunity to lead PA, building off the great work of those who have gone before me, especially current CEO Sarah Davies. I look forward to working with the PA Board and team to inspire more and better philanthropy that is big-hearted and clear-headed.’
