We are delighted to introduce Petra Buchanan as the new CEO of the McGrath Foundation! Petra will lead the organisation in an exciting new phase of development and we can’t wait for you all to get to know her!

Glenn McGrath, Co-Founder and President, welcomes Petra to the Foundation, noting her international business experience and marketing expertise.

‘Petra brings more than 20 years global experience working to develop and build awareness for leading brands. She has been extensively involved in the media, television and technology sectors in Australia and internationally, working to actively engage and connect people through content and digital initiatives,’ said McGrath.

The McGrath Foundation has come a long way since its creation in 2005 and is thrilled that Petra will be joining us at such an exciting time. Our commitment to ensuring every family experiencing breast cancer has access to a breast care nurse no matter where they live or their financial situation and ensuring Australians are breast aware, is very much at the core of our work and Petra aims to enhance and build on the success of the organisation going forward.

Petra takes over from Kylea Tink who resigned from the Foundation earlier in the year. ‘Kylea Tink, our inaugural CEO, worked tirelessly over the past five years during the most successful establishment phase of the McGrath Foundation,’ said McGrath Foundation Chairman, John Conde, AO.

‘It’s a rare opportunity to be able to join an organisation with the reputation and impact of the McGrath Foundation. Drawing on my passion for creating strong brands with meaning, I look forward to contributing to the future growth of the Foundation and the assistance we can provide to those impacted by breast cancer,’ said Ms Buchanan.

So please join us in welcoming Petra to the role at this exciting time for the McGrath Foundation!
