Netball Australia has boosted the make-up of its Board with the appointment of one of Australia’s most respected female leaders.

Anne-Marie Corboy, CEO of the Health Employees Superannuation Trust Australia (HESTA), heads up Australia’s largest super fund dedicated to the health and community services industry with $27b in assets and more than 770,000 members and 150,000 employers.

In 2011 she was listed as one of Australia’s True Leaders by the Australian Financial Review and in 2013 was recognised as one of Australia’s 100 Women of Influence by Westpac and the Australian Financial Review.

Netball Australia President Noeleen Dix said she was delighted to have such a strong and experienced leader joining the Board.

“Anne-Marie brings with her a wide range of business experience and an outstanding track record in delivering strategic plans for major organisations such as HESTA, the MCG Trust, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and Northern Health Service,” Dix said.

“She has a strong background in liaising with governments and key stakeholders and has overseen a significant growth in staff numbers, membership and the financial position of HESTA.  I believe she will add a great deal to our Board and complement the skills and expertise of our existing members.”

Corboy said was looking forward to bringing her Board experience and organisational knowledge to Australia’s leading female sport.

“Throughout my career I have always sought to promote women’s interests in a variety of settings,” Corboy said.

“I have a strong alignment with the values of netball and the work it does to help women and girls thrive.”

Corboy has been appointed for the next three years and joins Sue Taylor (AM), Pam Smith, Jan Sutherland, Paolina Hunt, Nareen Young and Kathryn Harby-Williams on the Board.
