Matt Janssen

Matt is a dynamic leader with extensive experience in senior leadership roles in the corporate sector and various board roles.

He’s led significant strategic transformation programs and is recognised as a customer experience thought leader and innovator driven by a sense of adventure and creativity.

Throughout his career Matt has also been a leader of LGBTI inclusion in the workplace and the community more broadly.  Having always been a  passionate supporter of Wear it Purple Day the opportunity to join the board was compelling for Matt given his passion in creating a better future for young rainbow people.

Matt identifies as a gay man, has strong family values and thinks being an Uncle is magical.  He’s an avid Sydney Swans fan, a keen aviator, was born in Adelaide and now lives in Sydney and was born to run.

His favourite band is Coldplay, has a dream to be on Gogglebox with his cat and just quietly he’s not a fan of heights!
