Corporate Leader and Rugby aficionado Cameron Clyne joins the Board of the Whitlam Institute
Professor Barney Glover, Vice-Chancellor of Western Sydney University, and the Honourable John Faulkner, Chair of the Whitlam Institute, today on the 8th of November 2016 announced the appointment of Mr Cameron Clyne to the Board of the Whitlam Institute.
The Whitlam Institute holds a unique place in the national landscape as a Prime Ministerial institute with significant public policy, educational, cultural, historical and heritage responsibilities under the one roof. The Institute is custodian of the Whitlam Prime Ministerial Collection and the historic Female Orphan School.
On announcing the appointment John Faulkner said, "We are delighted that Cameron Clyne has accepted our invitation to join the Board of the Whitlam Institute. Cameron, having grown up in Penrith, is a proud son of western Sydney. More than this, he brings a wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise with him."
Mr Clyne, a former Chief Executive at NAB and current chairman of advisory firm Camel Partners, is well known as a corporate leader. In December 2016 he was appointed as chairman of the Australian Rugby Union, having served as Director since October 2013. Perhaps less well known is his love of Australian literature and his advocacy of the benefits of a broad education.
His appointment further strengthens Mr Clyne's association with Western Sydney University where he sits on the Western Sydney University Foundation Council and is an Adjunct Professor with the School of Business.
