GIANTS Foundation Board Member
Melanie’s passion and drive to support organisations that align with her own is the key to her success. With sport being at the centre of Melanie’s upbringing, Melanie has witnessed the incredible aspects that it can bring to an individual’s purpose and life. Melanie has applied and committed herself to the sporting world over the years due to the boundless attributes it provides to herself and those around her. With AFL being a considerable favourite for her family, she is proud of the desire and determination that her wife and two sons share for the sport, and is hoping that her daughter, the latest addition to her family will also get to witness the favourable effects and impact that it can have on one’s life.
Melanie is the Director of Strategy and Business Relations at Growthbuilt where she partners with CEO’s and executives to lead strong teams of industry professionals in the Property, Development and Construction Industry. With a strong passion to drive diversity and change throughout the industry, Melanie is a member of Property Council Australia and sits on the PCA Diversity Committee. She is also a board member of CoreNet Global Australia, UNSW Foundation Limited, and a driving force of Interbuild, the first LGBTI+ property group to raise awareness of related topics within the industry.
A winner of the 2019 NAWIC (National Association of Women in Construction) Crystal Vision Award for the advancements of Women, Melanie continually aims to assist in driving diverse and inclusive initiatives for the property development and construction industry.
