As a melanoma survivor himself, Tony knows first-hand the difference that early detection can make. Tragically, a close friend who was diagnosed at the same time was not as lucky. This has inspired Tony to ensure that Cancer Council SA is a strong and dynamic organisation that leads the way in minimising how cancer impacts the lives of all of our loved ones.
Initially taking up a bike as part of rehab for knee surgery, Tony has well and truly established himself within the cycling community, averaging 100 km a week and joining Ride for a reason over the past four years. He has raised an incredible amount and has been inspired by both the professional and amateur riders he has met, all united by their passion for cycling and the goal of beating cancer for all South Australians.
Tony is an experienced business manager who has held executive management positions since 1995 in a range of industries including retail, banking, higher education and media. In addition, Tony has provided specialist advice and services for two accounting firms. He is a Fellow of the Australian Society of Certified Practicing Accountants and the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
Tony is driven by using his expertise to continuously improve the way in which Cancer Council SA operates. He is passionate about meeting the challenges of an ever-changing environment and maximising the impact of every dollar that is donated towards a cancer free future in South Australia.
