Following a search by a professional recruitment consultant, the Parkinson’s NSW Trust has appointed two new, independent Directors.
They are Annabel Crookes who is Legal & Risk Director and an Executive Director, Company Secretary at Laing O’Rourke and Andy Esteban who has been in the financial services industry for over 40 years – including 21 years as a senior executive for Perpetual Trustees.
The Parkinson’s NSW Trust is a separate entity from Parkinson’s NSW. Neither of the new Directors has any relationship with Parkinson’s NSW nor the former Board members of the Parkinson’s NSW Trust.
The full Board of the Trust includes three representatives from the Board of Parkinson’s NSW and two independent Directors.
The role of the Parkinson’s NSW Trust is to manage the investment of donations and
bequests intended to support people living with Parkinson’s. The Trust allocates regular grants which further this purpose.
This includes providing seed funding to approved projects of Parkinson’s NSW for assisting people with Parkinson’s. Its focus is on activities which have the potential to deliver better quality of life now for people living with Parkinson’s as the search for a cure continues.
