Our Board

Our Board and Committee Members

Successful organisations are always supported by a passionate, high-performing and diverse board and sub-committee structure. 

The ABRT Board consists of successful business restructuring & turnaround specialist practitioners, executive operatives and professionals with qualifications and expertise spanning: 

  • change management & leadership,
  • technological transformation, innovation & investment,
  • financial, accounting, taxation & legal services,
  • economics, supply chains, advocacy & legislative change,
  • project management, risk mitigation & consumer/business protection, and
  • broad ranging industry-specific expertise. 
 

The ABRT strongly supports diversity in board composition to ensure it remains highly effective in developing the ABRT Strategic Plan (Vision & Purpose).  

Multiple committees assist the ABRT Board in functioning effectively. 

The Board and sub-committee structure has been designed for the purpose of the ABRT’s application to the Professional Standards Councils and the legislative requirements required for a recognised scheme. 

On that basis, the board structure and committee members are constantly evolving to ensure the most effective risk management strategies, ethics & professional standards and consumer protection.
