Welcoming our New Board Member - Tony Pearson

Welcoming our new Board Member Tony Pearson and sending our deepest gratitute and farewell to former Board Member, Shelena Serrano.


I am delighted to announce that Communicare has appointed Tony Pearson as a member of our board.

Tony is an experienced international executive and company director, he is currently a Trustee of the Royal Botanic Garden & Domain Trust, a Commissioner at the Independent Planning Commission, and a non-executive director of ASX listed Cellnet and Peak Resources.

Prior to these non-executive appointments, Tony was a Managing Director at HSBC, where he led the organisation's Natural Resources business, and a Group Executive at SouthGobi Resources, based in Hong Kong. He also served as Chair of White Ribbon, was a White Ribbon Ambassador for many years and continues to mentor female leaders in the natural resources industry through the WIMNet program.

Tony holds a Bachelor of Commerce (with Merit) from the University of New South Wales and has been admitted as a Member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

Shelena Serrano has resigned from the position of Vice-Chairperson on the board effective from June 2020.  Shelena commenced with the board in 2012 and has provided important counsel during a period of significant transformation for Communicare. 

I would like to personally welcome Tony and extend my deepest gratitude for Shelena's stewardship and wish her success in her future endeavours. ​

Melissa Perry,
Chief Executive Officer
