nib foundation welcomes new Board Member


nib foundation is delighted to announce that nib's Head of Corporate Affairs and Investor Relations, Matthew Neat, has been appointed to our Board of Trustees.

Matthew brings to the Board more than 20 years of experience in the Corporate Communications sector. He was first appointed to nib in October 2007 and in his current role, is responsible for corporate affairs and media, investor relations, employee communications and events, as well as sponsorships across the nib Group.

As the first nib representative to be appointed to the foundation's Board, he brings not only a wealth of company experience but also has considerable background in the foundation's work and how that aligns with nib's broader operations.   

Matthew said he is looking forward to working with the foundation's Board to help fund community-based programs that meet the needs of young people and carers in an engaging and practical way.

"Having been across the work of the foundation for many years through my role with nib, I'm proud to be offered the opportunity to be a part of the Board and given a chance to play a hand in the incredible causes nib foundation supports," Matthew said.

"I'll be joining the team in the lead up to the 2016 Community Grant Program, so I'm excited to see the range of innovative programs that come through this year's applications and how our funding will be used to help address significant social causes both locally and on a national scale."

We warmly welcome Matthew to the nib foundation Board and look forward to the valuable contribution that he will no doubt make.
