Welcome… and farewell
CAN would like to warmly welcome Lorraine Keane to the board.
Lorraine is Chief Financial Officer at Screenwest and she brings extensive experience in not for profit and corporate financial management to the executive team at CAN.
“We really look forward to working with Lorraine in this new capacity, as we consolidate our work and develop the organisation’s role in new and exciting areas,” said general manager, Monica Kane.
Lorraine replaces Scott Bywaters who has served as a CAN director and more recently treasurer for the past four years. Scott’s contribution to the organisation went beyond his role on the board. His genius spreadsheets, quirky jokes, and Latin dance moves will be sadly missed by all.
CAN also says thanks and farewell to Gloria Zhang who has stepped down as director and secretary after four years. Gloria’s background and experience in international business and as a leader in the WA Oriental Art and Culture Association were valuable perspectives that Gloria brought to CAN. Another lifetime CAN friendship made, Gloria’s support and contribution will also be missed.
“Whilst it’s always lovely to welcome new faces to the CAN board, Gloria and Scott will be personally missed. They have both seen CAN through difficult times over the last few years and they have provided strategic rigour to the governance process. They have also become friends and mentors to the team, and especially to June and I. We wish both Gloria and Scott all the best in their journey ahead,” said Monica.
