Non-Executive Director & Company Secretary
FCPA, GAICD, B.Bus (Acc)
Since graduating from university with a business degree and going on to complete her qualification as a Certified Practising Accountant, Linda Spurr has always had a passion to help organisations and their people be the best that they can be. Over the years Linda’s contributions and achievements have been recognised by various industry awards including Telstra Business Women, NAB Women’s Agenda Leadership and CPA Australia.
When the opportunity arose to join the Sharon Faye Foundation, Linda was immediately interested. She is the first to admit that her ‘logical, organised and traditional’ thinking has been challenged, but she believes in Emotional Strength and the benefits it can bring to individuals, organisations and communities and she is embracing her own learning journey. The values of the Sharon Faye Foundation, of Respect, Compassion, Gratitude, Grace and Innovative Intelligence also resonated with Linda and drew her to the Foundation.
Linda is an experienced board director and an accomplished senior executive in the private and public sectors. She dedicates considerable time to Not for Profit organisations and causes that she believes in. She has more than 25 years’ experience in senior and executive management roles, with a strong emphasis on business improvement, stakeholder engagement, governance, risk and regulatory compliance.
In her more recent executive and consulting roles she has worked in aviation, tertiary education and government. Linda currently serves on several boards including NORTEC, Safeskies Australia, Australian Aviation Hall of Fame and the RMIT University Aviation Industry Advisory Committee. She is former Deputy Chair of Aviation Aerospace Australia.
Linda is a Fellow Certified Practising Accountant, a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and holds qualifications in training, accounting, business management, quality auditing and financial markets.
Linda is looking forward to applying her skills and expertise to support the work of the Sharon Faye Foundation.
