When Jeremy joined us as Chairman in 2018, we were aware of the privilege attached to having someone with the high level business experience, oversee the formative phase of CRBF. We also understood his tenure would come to an end in 2019, due to his planned relocation to Europe for the year with his family.
Jeremy provided an excellent start to the CRBF strategy, working meticulously to build CRBF from the ground up, and to become an organisation who could positively contribute to improved survival outcomes and treatment options for sarcoma patients. Through his wealth of expertise in the boardroom, as both an ASX 100 company chairman and as a seasoned company director, together with his strong passion for cause and personal experience with this cancer, Jeremy contributed considerably to the exponential growth CRBF has seen over past years, and our Board of Directors will remain forever grateful to him for doing so.
