Ahead of the Biz Gals Inspire Series event featuring Ann Sherry, we thought we'd take a trip down memory lane and showcase her interview as one of our original Inspirational Biz Gals.
Ann is the Executive Chairman of Carnival Australia, the largest cruise ship operator in Australasia and was previously the CEO of Westpac New Zealand and CEO of Bank of Melbourne.
In addition to her executive role, Ann holds a number of non-executive roles including Sydney Airport, ING Direct (Australia), ING Group, The Palladium Group, Australian Rugby Union, Cape York Partnerships, Infrastructure Victoria and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.
In 2001, Ann was awarded the Centenary Medal by the Australian Government and in 2004 was awarded an Order of Australia for her contribution to the Australian community. In 2015, Ann was named as the overall winner of the Australian Financial Review and Westpac 100 Women of Influence Award.
An inspiration to many, Ann has been instrumental in paving the way for women in executive roles and continues to fight the good fight for gender equity.
