With a Bachelor of Business (Accounting) as a firm foundation, Ed has a sharp eye for increasing and diversifying shareholder value. His entrepreneurial expertise has featured the successful execution of mergers and acquisitions, public equities, re-engineering of distressed financial structures, and aligning visions for merged corporate entities.
As Chief Executive Officer of the Locker Group, Ed initiated an industry roll up that steered the Locker Group to revenues circa $200M, culminating in a sale to a U.S. listed entity. The next seven years saw him as the Vice President for AsiaPacific, where he managed further business expansion and subsequent diverse relationships in the complex Asia Pacific regions, with a focus on Chinese business relationships.
Ed’s philanthropic practices and corporate management history also includes a variety of involvement in the Australian Football League where, as a volunteer Director, Ed’s passion and drive to deliver a better community correlates directly with his commercial skill set.
