Food Frontier is excited to announce the appointment of businesswoman, entrepreneur and humanitarian Allison Gibson to the organisation’s Board of Directors. Allison will work in collaboration with Food Frontier CEO Jane Sydenham-Clarke, Founder, Executive Director and Chair Thomas King, and founding board members, Non-Executive Directors David Bucca, Kat Dunn, Terence Jeyaretnam, to govern the Food Frontier as the organisation continues to expand and evolve.
Allison is passionate about developing solutions to reconcile healthy protein consumption and sustainable protein production and sharing this information so that others think differently about global food security and how they can create sustainable, safe, accessible and affordable protein for the future.
Allison’s not-for-profit governance experience includes spending the past nine years as a board member on the Skyline Education Foundation Australia, which provides intensive support to high ability students with high resilience through the VCE studies. Her income generation expertise has aided her as Chair of the portfolio building revenue at Skyline, allowing the previously small organisation to grow to a large Deductible-Gift-Recipient entity.
Her entrepreneurial leadership includes the seeding and consolidation of social enterprise at Skyline Hatch, while still investing time in both her family office and in diverse commercial activities, with particular interest in agriculture, blockchain, health care, and education.
Food Frontier CEO Jane Sydenham-Clarke said, “We’re thrilled to welcome Allison to the Food Frontier Board at this pivotal moment of organisational growth. Her continuous commitment to social justice, including through the lens of food security, enables her to bring great insight to our work creating a collective positive impact on our region’s food systems.
