National membership association Governance Institute of Australia is delighted to welcome two new board members: Caron Sugars and Greg Hanigan.

Caron is a Governance, Risk and Controls Advisory Partner at KPMG and has been involved with Governance Institute since 2007 when she was a course director.

She participated in the Subject Advisory Council and Governance Institute’s Western Australia Council. She has also regularly presented at Governance Institute short courses and certificates.

“I have seen so many careers and lives expand because of people joining the Governance Institute family,” Ms Sugars said.

“I’m delighted - and flattered - to have been chosen to join the Board where I can contribute to the growth of this amazing organisation.”

Greg Hanigan is a Risk Partner at IOOF and has been a Governance Institute Tasmanian Council member since 2016.

“This is an exciting time to be joining the Board as Governance Institute looks to deliver many new improvements for our members to assist them to promote good governance in their organisations,” Mr Hanigan said.

“The Governance Institute member community provides a trusted network for governance professionals to access useful training, practical tools and insights. I look forward to working with the Board in their pursuit of providing valued services to our members.”

Governance Institute CEO Megan Motto welcomed Caron and Greg, saying she is looking forward to working with them during an important time for Governance Institute.

“We are delighted that Caron and Greg have joined Governance Institute’s Board and know they will play an integral role in helping set – and oversee - the future strategic direction for the organisation,” Ms Motto said.

“The role of the Board is particularly crucial in these current times with the governance and risk management profession in the spotlight like never before. It is therefore so important to have experts such as Caron and Greg on the Board.”
