Appointment of Jim Williamson as new Chair of LeadWest

Jul 5, 2018

LeadWest is pleased to announce the appointment of Jim Williamson as the new Chair of LeadWest.

Mr Williamson is a long-time resident of Melbourne’s West and has held a wide range of administrative positions. He is the Independent Chair for both the Footscray Learning Precinct and the Westgate Tunnel Community Liaison Group.

He is a regional expert on the Board of the West of Melbourne Economic Development Alliance and has served on the Board of the Western Bulldog Community Foundation for several years.

He has previously worked in a number of Victorian government departments and held senior policy officer positions at the Brotherhood of St Laurence and Mission Australia.

He replaces the previous Chair Anne Barker, who has stepped down after nearly two years in the role. LeadWest thanks Anne Barker for her enormous expertise and contribution to LeadWest and the communities of Melbourne’s West.

Former Chair Anne Barker highlighted the fact that, “The community, local governments and businesses in Melbourne have great alignment, and a real determination to ensure the West is a great place to live, work and learn.”

Mr Williamson also wished to thank Anne for her outstanding leadership and legacy and looks forward to his new role.
