In recognition of his outstanding leadership and significant contributions to helping support children with hearing, speech and language difficulties throughout Western Australia, Emeritus Professor Gary Martin, the chief executive and executive director of the Australian Institute of Management WA, has been awarded with a lifetime membership by Telethon Speech & Hearing.
A prominent education and workplace leader in Perth, Prof. Martin first provided exceptional knowledge and expertise to our organisation as a Board member from October 2015. The following year, he was appointed as Chair and remained so until his resignation in July 2020.
During his tenure, Prof. Martin showed extraordinary leadership, effectively and efficiently shaping our centre’s culture, performance, and processes to better support Western Australian families and children in need of our services.
He has volunteered his time above and beyond what would be expected of a not for profit Chair to ensure the organisation’s reputation was upheld and continues to contribute to the organisation by supporting TSH’s leadership team and staff with the provision of leadership training amongst other initiatives through AIM WA.
We are honoured to bestow upon Prof. Martin an Honorary Life Membership of our centre as a reflection of our great respect, appreciation and thanks.
