Former Victorian premier named EQT chair

Equity Trustees has named Australian politician and business leader Jeff Kennett as its next chairman following the departure of current chairman Tony Killen from October.

Mr Kennett was a member of the Victorian state parliament from 1976 to 1999 and since then has taken on a number of executive roles in the private sector, including director of Seven West Media and president of the Hawthorn Football Club.

He is also the founder of government-backed mental health initiative Beyondblue.

He has been a director of EQT for nine-years, serving on the remuneration, HR and nomination committee.


“Jeff is a highly accomplished business and community leader, with extensive experience in both the public and private sectors and a track record of outstanding success,” said Mr Killen.
