MEDIA RELEASE – 9 December 2022
ADHD Australia announces a new board and CEO
ADHD Australia has welcomed a new board and Chief Executive Officer, Natalie Truong.
“We are very pleased to welcome Natalie to ADHD Australia and our hard-working volunteer executive” says Matt Tice, who was appointed as Chair of ADHDA on 3 December 2022. “Natalie is an award-winning senior executive and lawyer with over 17 years of experience across the not-for-profit, corporate and government sectors. She is expert in leading change and improving governance and business operations, and we are looking forward to working with her to strengthen ADHDA and better advocate for our community”. Natalie will take up the role from January 2023.
“I would also like to welcome the new board of ADHDA. I am proud to take on the role of Chair and continue the important work of ADHDA, as well as explore new horizons, partnerships, and opportunities. While awareness of ADHD is increasing, there is still much to be done to support and advocate for the more than 1.2 million Australians who live with ADHD.”
“I’d like to thank the outgoing board for their commitment to ADHDA and would particularly like to acknowledge the outgoing Chair of ADHDA Professor Michael Kohn. Michael has been a committed director of ADHDA since 2015 and is a respected member of the ADHD clinical community. Our clinicians provide such a valuable support for people with ADHD and their families, and very often are the reason many people with ADHD are able to participate and excel in education and work. I look forward to working with Michael as a Director of ADHDA.”
Natalie says “I am excited to be joining ADHD Australia and to help give a voice to, and support, the many Australians affected by ADHD. Now is the time for us to make a difference, by listening to our community and strengthening our trusted relationships with government, industry and colleagues. I am thrilled to be working with ADHDA’s incredibly energetic and dedicated board into the next phase of our journey.”
We also like to announce the following changes to our Board’s Leadership Team:
- Matt Tice is Chair
- Terri Martin is Vice-Chair
- Angela Byron is Company Secretary, and
- Vikrant Mulgund is Treasurer
We would like to acknowledge the hard work of the outgoing leadership team: Michael Kohn (Chair), Chris Bevan (Vice Chair and Treasurer) and Michelle Joosse (Company Secretary) and thank them for all they have done to get ADHD Australia to where it is today.\
Matt Tice, Chair of ADHD Australia said “I’m excited to deliver the next phase of ADHD Australia’s journey with a strong CEO and Leadership team. Whilst the ADHD landscape is ever changing, we need to ensure we are always serving our community in the best possible way we can. I’m confident that we are now set up to do just that.”
