He is also, a Trustee of CEDA – the Committee for Economic Development of Australia, and a Director of SIRCA Limited.

Professor Jameson has extensive experience across a range of financial and investment organisations at Board and senior management level in Australia and around the world, and will provide excellent guidance and stewardship of the Faculty whilst arrangements for its long-term leadership are considered over the coming months.

I would like to thank Professor Gabbott again for his leadership of the Faculty during his eight year tenure, and to wish him well for the future.
