  • 7 September 2022

Auspire is pleased to announce the appointment of Ashleigh Brand, the newest member of the management team. Ms Brand joins in the role of General Manager – Programs and Awards to lead the management and implementation of the very busy program, awards and alumni engagement portfolio.

Prior to joining Auspire,  Ashleigh had been the Program Manager of Kaleidoscope; a start-up initiative in 2017 of the City of Stirling, which includes mentoring, training and job-readiness programs for skilled migrants. Under Ashleigh’s lead, Kaleidoscope grew to become a multi- council funded program across six other local government jurisdictions.

Prior to Kaleidoscope, Ashleigh had roles in training, ICT and Marketing Communications. Positions included Professional Development Manager with the Institute of Public Administration, Senior Consultant at Transition Time and ICT roles as an Information Technology Architect in Australia and Canada.

Morgen Lewis, Auspire’s Chief Executive Officer said “Ashleigh will be a tremendous asset to our already high-performing team. She not only brings with her great experience in policy development but also skills in marketing and communications.”

Ashleigh has also held roles within the WA Department of Premier and Cabinet, plus in her early career, marketing and public relations roles with Rottnest Island Authority and WA’s iconic King Edward and Princess Margaret Hospitals.

Outgoing and long-serving team member Anne Marie Farley said “Ashleigh is so highly respected in the community sector and I couldn’t feel more confident in handing over the baton.”

Anne Marie Farley announced her retirement in May and is finishing up in October after fifteen years in various senior roles within the organisation.
