OzHarvest has appointed Lucy d’Arville, a Partner at Bain & Company to the Board of Directors. Lucy joins the Board after eight years of supporting OzHarvest through Bain’s pro bono work and being part of the OzHarvest Board strategy sub-committee.
Chairman, Lawrence Goldstone said Lucy’s experience with OzHarvest and other not-for-profits makes her a great addition to the team. “I’m delighted to welcome Lucy to the Board, she is already a familiar face at OzHarvest and knows the organisation well after working on many projects in a pro bono capacity. The last year has certainly been challenging, so having strong leaders that bring diverse perspectives and experience, is a priority for the Board.”
Founder and CEO, Ronni Kahn AO said she is thrilled to have another great female join the team. “Lucy is already a valued member of the OzHarvest family and brings a wealth of experience and passion for the cause that will help increase our impact. She has made a huge contribution helping to improve our operations and organisational structure, along with many other innovation projects.”
Lucy d’Arville has worked with many non-profits globally and currently leads the social impact efforts for Bain & Company in Australia. “My passion for OzHarvest was ignited the moment I saw firsthand the volume of high-quality food that was rescued on a daily basis and the joy it brought when delivered to individuals facing severe food insecurity. It has been a privilege to be part of OzHarvest in a pro bono capacity and I look forward to deepening my contribution and applying my strategic skills at a Board level”.
A Partner at Bain and Company, Lucy leads the Australian and New Zealand Healthcare and Social Impact practices. With 15 years local and international experience, Lucy has led a wide range of engagements with an emphasis on customer-led growth, organisational effectiveness and operational performance improvement. In 2019, she was elected a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.
