Welcome from the Chairman
Since taking on the chairman role this year, I have met many alumni at functions both in Australia and overseas. This has afforded me a new insight into the strength and goodwill of our alumni network.
It has been really impressive to see the great number of people who have spent some part of their career working at Allens, and it has been particularly heart-warming to hear them talk so fondly of our firm. I’ve enjoyed catching up with so many of you and I look forward to continuing to do so.
I am happy to tell you that my predecessor chairman, Ian Wallace, has resumed, perhaps with some relief, his full-time banking practice in our Sydney office. I would like to place on record our firm’s thanks to Ian for his leadership and guidance over the past four years.
It only remains for me to welcome you to this issue of our alumni newsletter, which offers a range of stories about what’s been happening at Allens and particularly with some of our alumni. To read the stories click on the images on the right. You should be logged in automatically but if you are prompted, enter the password allensalum.
If you have any thoughts on what you’d like to see in future editions, please get in touch – I’d love to hear your ideas.
And finally, for those in Sydney on 17 May 2017 – please join us at our next alumni event being held at The Calyx in the Royal Botanical Gardens. You can register your interest.
