Brooke’s experience in the not-for-profit sector includes working for the Police Community Youth Clubs in both Queensland and New South Wales, and most recently as CEO of Playgroup Queensland.
He has served, and continues to serve on a number of not-for-profit boards within the community, including Queensland Minister for Communities, Child and Family Forum, Playgroup Australia, Families Australia Inc, the Australian Council for Children and Families and the Mainstream Youth Organisation’s Crime Prevention Task Force.
AFQ President Associate Professor Charles Mitchell said “The board is delighted to be able to find someone of the calibre of Mark Brooke at a time of transition for the Foundation.”
The appointment comes after the former Managing Director Paul McGregor announced his retirement mid way through 2009.
“The Foundation looks forward to the continuing evolution, and building on the sound platform that Paul has laid during his time as Managing Director,” said Assoc. Prof. Mitchell.
