I am delighted to be introducing myself to you all – I’m John Stubley and I will be joining the Foundation as Interim CEO, while Steph Furler is on maternity leave.

Over the past few years, I’ve held leadership roles at Hobart City Mission and Optia Disability Services. These were rich and rewarding roles thanks to the incredible support of people within our community who helped us transform lives.

My experience has shown me that Tasmanians are some of the most compassionate and caring people, who are always happy to chip in to help others. As I join the Foundation, I can already see that our community of supporters are just as giving and are really committed to improving the health of others.

I look forward to meeting many of you at our upcoming events, which are listed on the back page, and to hear your inspiring stories. Together, I know that we will continue championing groundbreaking research projects that make real differences in people's lives.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out anytime if you would like to chat. I can be reached on 03 6166 1319 or at

Warm regards

John Stubley
