The Board of UN Youth Australia · Divisional Representative Director
Prior to becoming a member of the Board, Ben joined UN Youth Australia externally with no experience within the organisation at the beginning of 2021 as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Ben graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting & Finance) from Bond University in mid-2021 and has since been working in the Audit subdivision of Assurance at Ernst & Young (EY) Sydney.
In his current role at EY Ben works mostly with clients that fall within the Technology, Media & Telecommunications industry but is not limited to having exposure to clients outside of this industry. Outside of UN Youth and work Ben enjoys being involved in Rugby Union predominantly as a referee, but also enjoys supporting the game from the sideline.
Ben is excited to be a member of the board to be a driving force behind the strategic direction of UN Youth. Over 2022 and 2023 Ben aims to continue working on the improvement of the organisations financial and risk management and reporting whilst also focusing on increasing diversity and strengthening the organisations ways of working.
Through this Ben hopes that the board can facilitate the growth and prosperity of the organisation now and into the future ensuring that UN Youth is able to continue to empowering all possible young Australians to be change leaders.
