B Lab Australia & NZ
Andrea is deeply passionate about growing the ecosystem of purpose-driven businesses in Australia & New Zealand. Andrea started at B Lab as Executive Director in September 2017, coming from Social Ventures Australia (SVA), where she was Director in Venture Philanthropy, responsible for incubating and testing innovative solutions to complex social problems, and leading the organisation’s strategy, thinking and business development in preventing and tackling employment exclusion across Australia.
Prior to SVA, Andrea worked at KPMG and in Victorian government where she led teams to deliver high-profile policy and program reform. Andrea holds a Bachelor of Public Policy and Management (First Class Hons) and Bachelor of Arts from the University of Melbourne. She is also a Vincent Fairfax Fellow, a flagship program which offers a select group of senior executives the most advanced leadership experience offered in Australia, with a focus on moral reasoning skills in the most dynamic, disruptive and complex business challenges.
"Our vision of shared and durable prosperity, using business as a force for good and working together to create local and global change, is the perfect antidote to the rise of individualism, exclusion and a deep distrust in our economic system."
