​​Davidson Executive & Boards Senior Partner Jarrod McLauchlan has been appointed to the Leadership Victoria Board following a long association with the organisation.

Jarrod has been connected to Leadership Victoria for almost 15 years, as a corporate partner, participant, alumni member as well as having completed the Williamson Community Leadership Program in 2015. 

“I’m extremely humbled by the opportunity to be part of the Leadership Victoria Board and be in a position to contribute to the future of the organisation,” Jarrod said.

“After having a long association with Leadership Victoria, I feel this is a great next step as I truly appreciate and understand the important role the organisation has in our community."

“It’s an organisation committed to developing purposeful leaders and inspiring them to contribute to an inclusive and sustainable future.”

Jarrod has more than 15 years’ experience working in executive search roles across the public, private and not for profit sectors in Victoria.

He holds a Bachelor of Business from RMIT majoring in Human Resource Management and is a corporate member of the Melbourne Chamber of Commerce, IPAA Victoria and LG Pro.

Jarrod is well known for his sound expertise, knowledge and strong networks within the sectors he works in. He is highly regarded by clients and candidates alike as someone who works tirelessly to achieve the best outcome for all and through this has built strong and lasting relationships.

Highly networked, Jarrod will be working with the Leadership Victoria team to drive an alumni engagement strategy to amplify the organisation’s impact.

“Having spent my 15-year executive career focused on relationship management, as well as having been part of the Old Haileybury Association Council when we led the renewal and development a robust overarching member engagement strategy, I felt there was some value I could bring to the organisation,” he said.

“An engaged alumni network will bring significant profile and presence back to Leadership Victoria, enabling it to have a far greater impact over its next 30 years.”

More broadly, Jarrod said his responsibilities as a board member were providing strategic guidance to the organisation.

“It’s an exciting time at present as we are revisiting the vision of the organisation, having not long appointed an energetic and inspiring new CEO in Sally Hines, and also have some board renewal,” he said.

“In addition to my formal board role, it is also about being an active member of the Leadership Victoria community, and contributing to its programs and assisting in the development of the organisation.”

A father of two young boys and a passionate and engaged leader, Jarrod is motivated by the aspiration of a connected and strong community and understands the key role which Leadership Victoria can play in realising this.
