GIANTS Foundation Board Member
Throughout a career spanning almost two decades in the Financial Services Sector, Margot has built a reputation as a trusted, ethical and committed leader with a wide range of relationships and influence. She has extensive experience in business banking, leadership and the law and has a reputation for driving change in complex environments.
Margot is a Managing Partner at Derwent Search, leading the Financial Services Practice, where she is taking the opportunity to turbo-charge new and different leadership in the sector.
Raised in a family business, she is commercially astute and relentless in finding new opportunity. Margot grew up in regional Victoria, where the community revolved around footy. Margot is now coach to her daughter’s football team and believes strongly in the power football has to integrate society and lift spirits.
Margot is a regular writer and speaker on business and leadership and is often called upon to bring a fresh perspective to the business community. She is committed to developing others: she co-created the innovative University of Sydney Lucy Mentoring Program, which was adopted by the NSW Government. Margot has created similar programs for Indigenous youth.
Margot has a husband and two high school-aged children and is very pleased that they all love football as much as she does.
