Announcing Megan Motto as our new CEO

Megan Motto

Governance Institute of Australia has appointed Ms Megan Motto as its new Chief Executive Officer. Megan will commence in January 2019.

The board is delighted that Megan Motto is joining the organisation. Megan is the former Chief Executive Officer of Consult Australia. Megan is on the boards of Standards Australia and the Committee for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA).

Megan is well known and highly respected in the business community. Megan’s significant Chief Executive experience, her executive leadership capabilities and vision for Governance Institute will go a long way in ensuring that the Institute achieves its ambitious governance agenda.

We are confident that with Megan’s leadership, Governance Institute can successfully encourage a greater commitment to good governance across a much broader cross-section of our community.

Megan Motto said she was excited to be leading Australia’s pre-eminent organisation for promoting excellence in the practice of governance. Her primary goals are to ensure that we continue to provide value to our members and customers, enhancing their capacity as governance professionals, and to build on our position as the leading voice on governance in Australia.

Meegan George has done a tremendous job as Acting Chief Executive and we thank her for her strong leadership. Ms George has led Governance Institute as Acting Chief Executive since September 2018 and will continue to do so until Ms Motto commences, at which time she will resume her role as Chief Commercial Officer.


Megan Motto will be attending our National Conference this year. It is a great program and includes well-known international and domestic speakers. If you have not yet registered, I encourage you to do so.
