Corporate Partnerships & Philanthropy Manager
Georgie comes to the OCRF from a career in the sporting industry, where she worked in corporate and community partnerships, licensing and events for more than 20 years, most recently across eight seasons with the AFL Players’ Association. Over the years she has complemented her work experience with study, most recently completing a Masters of Business (Marketing) and a Masters of Management (Sport Management).
Georgie has been known to the OCRF for many years, having passionately fundraised for an early detection test since the late 2000’s when her mum, Mandy, was diagnosed with OvCa. With the help of her family, Mandy included, she established Mands’ Mob – an ever growing team of fun-runners to participate in multi-charity events and raise funds for the OCRF between 2009 and 2017. When Mandy passed away in early 2017, Georgie and long-time family friend and Channel 9 personality Clint Stanaway, founded the Silver Lining Ride to honour both Mandy and friend Helen Hatzis who was lost to OvCa just a few weeks earlier.
The growth of the Silver Lining Ride brought Georgie ever closer to the OCRF team such that when an opportunity to work with the Foundation in a full-time capacity arose, she jumped at it. She will continue building relationships with Australia’s philanthropic and corporate communities, encouraging them to invest in research which will help achieve the goals of early detection, improved treatment and management for women with the disease and ultimately prevention.
