Lotterywest Board Members

Premier Colin Barnett today announced the appointment of a new chairman and board member to the Lotterywest board. The appointment of chairman will be taken up by Mr John Atkins, current chairman, Western Australia - ANZ. “Mr Atkins comes to this important role at Lotterywest with strong credentials including a background in commercial law, and was head of the Perth office of the national law firm, Freehills,” Mr Barnett said. “His current position of chairman, Western Australia - ANZ and director and vice president of the Western Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry will bring significant commercial expertise to the Lotterywest board.” Mr Atkins also has a long history of community involvement with previous board appointments on a number of hospital boards, Foodbank and Asialink. In addition to the new chairman, the Premier also announced the appointment of Professor Linda Kristjanson as a board member. Professor Kristjanson is the deputy vice chancellor, Research and Development at Curtin University of Technology. Professor Kristjanson has held the position of The Cancer Council WA chair of Palliative Care (until 2006) and served as a member of the National Health and Medical Research Council (2003-06). In 2002, Professor Kristjanson was selected as the Australian Telstra Business Woman of the Year for her entrepreneurial work in health research and science. “Mr Atkins and Professor Kristjanson will take up their appointments on Monday, March 29 and will bring a wealth of experience in business and the community to the Lotterywest board,” Mr Barnett said. The Premier expressed his appreciation to outgoing chairman Clyde Bevan and board members Patricia Tassell and Freda Crucitti. Mr Bevan has completed a six-year term as chairman and led the Lotterywest board during a time of record business success and innovative grant-making to the West Australian community. In 2008-09 for the first time in its history, Lotterywest gave more than $100million in direct grants to over 1,000 community organisations across the State, as well as statutory funding to health, sports and arts which totalled more than $234million.
