Executive Leadership Team

Andrew Donne

Chief Executive Officer

BBus

Andrew Donne was appointed Chief Executive Officer in 2016, following more than a decade of senior leadership within the organisation.

Andrew’s priorities are to ensure the needs and interests of people with a disability and their families are first and foremost in all our decisions; to implement strategic changes so that our services and structure are well-suited to the NDIS; and to honour our legacy by ensuring we are financially strong for the future.

Since 2004 Andrew was responsible for the overall management of our Australian Disability Enterprises (ADEs), instigating opportunities for a number of major new commercial contracts which offered both valuable employment opportunities for people with a disability and stronger commercial viability for the organisation.

Under Andrew’s leadership, Endeavour Foundation became the largest employer of people with a disability in Australia, providing support to more than 2,350 people in the workplace.

Andrew holds extensive commercial experience from Linfox Transport, Shell, Pacific Dunlop and McDonalds.
