Dual-Olympic Gold medalist and accomplished businesswoman Jenn Morris OAM has just joined The Leisure Collective as a non-executive director. Morris, whose impressive list of credentials includes being a director on a number of Australia’s largest companies and a former partner at international professional services firm Deloitte, is the first female board member of The Leisure Collective, which boasts a portfolio of international lifestyle brands like Creatures of Leisure and OTIS Eyewear. The move will see Morris advising on matters including people development, sustainability, inclusivity, and governance.
“We’re obviously thrilled to have someone of Jenn’s calibre join the board and look forward to the wealth of experience she’ll bring to the table,” says CEO & Director of The Leisure Collective, Nathan Omodei. “Jenn is a true wishlist addition to the team and we were so excited when she said yes. Her insight and diversity of opinion will be of incredible value as we move ahead with our people development and sustainability goals especially.”
“I’m really delighted to be a part of a group like The Leisure Collective,” says Jenn Morris on her recent appointment. “As a West-Australian-based company they punch above their weight and help promote an active lifestyle through every one of their brands, which is close to my heart. I’m especially looking forward to the bonus surf lessons from Mick Fanning. They weren’t officially in the agreement, but I’m sure they’re a given.”
Morris joins fellow sporting greats including 3x World Surfing Champion Mick Fanning, Fremantle captain Nat Fyfe as part of the team of advisors at The Leisure Collective.
