APPOINTMENT OF JASON RYAN AS A DIRECTOR
We are proud to announce the appointment of Jason Ryan to the Board of Directors of Transplant Australia. It is an exciting time for Transplant Australia, with so many opportunities to promote organ and tissue donation to the Australian public in 2014 and Jason will be taking on a fundamental role in helping us to maximise these opportunities.
Sustaining our organisation continues to be a challenge and we are reviewing how we can secure Transplant Australia for the future. Part of the answer to this lies in securing forward-thinking business people to help our board develop a long term future for Transplant Australia, assisting us to build sustainable partnerships that will help promote our message and cause.
Jason has been helping Transplant Australia over the past few years with innovative fundraising activities, and his passion lies in helping us to promote the increase in transplant rates and maximising our fundraising potential as well as our continued promotion around the Australian Organ Donor Register.
Jason Ryan is the Director of Legal Affairs at Treasury Wine Estates in Melbourne as well as the Foudner and Director of MMU, a philanthropic group who support The Royal Children’s Hospital, Red Cross, Lifesaving Victoria and of course Transplant Australia.
With the appointment of Jason from Victoria and the long standing position held by Jan Wall from Queensland, we are meeting our targets of representing various states within the Transplant Australia board.
