It’s been a busy few months at RMCC with our RMCC HQ move and new programs starting up. Quietly behind the scenes, our RMCC Board has been busy too. Our board come from a range of backgrounds and their knowledge and expertise enrich our organisation. We hope that you enjoy getting to know them!
Mark Heintz- Chair
Mark is the Chair of our RMCC Board, bringing leadership expertise from the agriculture and not-for-profit sectors. He is currently the CEO of Otway Pork and a non-faith based member and Director on the UnitingCare Board of Victoria and Tasmania. In his spare time, he is an avid cyclist, and growing up in Broadmeadows in Melbourne’s North, he is connected to the areas we work within.
Carolyn Doyle- Non-Executive Director & Secretary
As a lawyer with over 30 years of experience, Carolyn has worked with commercial businesses, government bodies and not-for-profit organisations. Whilst Carolyn describes herself as ‘bookish, untidy and curious’, she is currently legal counsel at the Australian Charities and Not for Profits Commission. Carolyn has joined us because she firmly believes that RMCC can make a positive difference in the lives of the children who participate in its programs. Which to her is ‘a great thing to be involved in’.
Mark Burton- Non-Executive Director
Mark B is a Certified Practicing Accountant and over the past 4 years has been actively involved in providing settlement support and services to the Sudanese community, alongside his own commercial consultancy venture. When asked to summarise himself in 3 words, he is tempted to describe himself as an ‘old white male’ but will prefer ‘Mature. Social conscience’. We can tell that his sense of humour has been present throughout his life, because when he was a child, he aspired to be ‘tall, because I was always the smallest kid, holding the blackboard in the class photo’.
Jordan Mavros- Non-Executive Director
Jordan’s personal interest and concern in the encouragement, guidance and support of children and youth is augmented by his experience as a social worker and counsellor. Two professions very different from what he expected as a child! When Jordan was young, he expected to be a farmer, because for young Jordan, his world was his village. Even now, he treasures the memories of tending to the sheep after school. Additionally, Jordan is the former CEO of the Geelong Ethnic Communities Council, Chairperson of the Multicultural Aged Care Services, and President and Director at United Way/ Give Where You Live.
Jennifer Hill- Non-Executive Director
Jennifer is a senior consultant who has worked extensively across risk and crisis management, media and government relations, and corporate communications. She has worked in some of the world’s most dynamic geopolitical environments, especially with World Vision Australia, leading their humanitarian and emergency public affairs. Jennifer is a person of fascinating stories, having lived in Jordan and Timor-Leste.
Alice Wojcik and Bobby Allen- Executive Directors
Alice our Founder and CEO, along with Bobby, our Co-Founder and Project Manager will be serving as the Executive Directors of the Board bringing their on-the-ground knowledge, passion and their diverse range of individual talents.
Alice has a background in mathematics and financial planning, having worked in the banking and risk sector. However, her passion lies with creating opportunities for vulnerable children, allowing them to succeed no matter what their background or circumstances, a cause she has dedicated herself to for more than 10 years, resulting in RMCC. Bobby has a background in audio-engineering and over 10 years’ experience working with special needs and homeless children and youth through an array of organisations. He also has over 5 years in project and event management, having curated various events in multiple cities across the world.
