Unicef Australia appoints former NRMA CEO as new chief

The former motoring insurance group CEO is set to take up his new position later this month

Unicef Australia has appointed former NRMA group CEO, Tony Stuart as its new CEO.

Stuart will be moving into his role following 12 years as group lead of the insurance giant, and six years as CEO of Sydney Airports Corporation.

With more than 20 years’ corporate experience in marketing, financial services and other executive and board roles, Stuart was also deeply involved in the not-for-profit sector in Australia throughout his career, and was recently appointed chair of the advisory board of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC). He is also member of the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership.

Stuart also has a background in the creative and marketing space, and once proclaimed himself to be a "chief marketing officer dressed up as a CEO".

“I am honoured to be joining Unicef Australia,” Stuart said. “Unicef is a highly regarded brand, with an outstanding track record throughout the world. Here at home, Unicef plays a vital role, enabling Australians to contribute to making a lasting difference to the lives of children, particularly those most marginalised.

“I look forward to working with the Unicef Australia team to further expand our partnerships, and to advance the rights and improve the lives of all children.”

Stuart replaces former chief executive Dr Norman Gillespie, who stepped down in November to pursue other opportunities. Adrian Graham had assumed CEO responsibilities on an interim basis prior Stuart’s appointment.

“Tony joins Unicef Australia at an exciting and important time,” Unicef Australia president, John Stewart, said. “While Unicef Australia has grown considerably over recent years, so too has our ambition to do even more to stand up for the rights of children throughout the world.”

Stuart takes up his new role on 18 July.

Is your customer experience program suffering bright shiny object syndrome?

You may have heard of ‘bright shiny object syndrome’. The term is used to describe new initiatives undertaken by organisations that either lack a strategic approach, or suffer from a failure to effectively implement.

Leveraging technology to stand out in the sea of sameness

The technology I'm talking about here is data and marketing automation. Current digital marketing methodology, much as it is practiced at Bluewolf, dictates the need for a strategy that does four things: Finds the right audience, uses the right channel, delivers the right content, and does all of that at the right time.
