Asthma Australia is announcing the resignation of our CEO, Michele Goldman. Michele has been with us since November 2016, leading the process of merging six asthma foundations, resulting in the formation of a national peak body for people with asthma in October 2017. On behalf of the Asthma Australia Board, Leadership Team, staff, our committees, associates, partners and all those we work with, we would like to acknowledge and extend our heartfelt gratitude to Michele for her leadership, passion, and unwavering commitment to Asthma Australia.  

We wish Michele success in her new opportunity, which will see her take up an important leadership role that aligns with her personal and professional goals.  

Michele said “Asthma Australia has been an absolute highlight for my career, both personally and professionally. I am immensely grateful for the opportunity I have had to lead the organisation at such a pivotal moment in its history. Working alongside such incredible professionals to create a brighter future, one that offers the promise of improved outcomes for more people living with asthma, has been truly rewarding.  Our collaborative efforts have deepened community engagement paving the way for innovative approaches across services, research and policy.”  

As Michele transitions out of her role, she remains deeply committed to Asthma Australia’s purpose and mission. Asthma Australia’s Board Chair James Wright said Michele has been an exceptional leader during her tenure at Asthma Australia.  

“Michele’s vision, dedication, and tireless efforts have been instrumental in propelling our organisation forward. Under her guidance, we have achieved significant milestones and made remarkable progress toward our goals.”  

Looking ahead, Asthma Australia is well positioned to build upon the foundation laid by Michele and the entire team.  

Asthma Australia’s Leadership Team said “Michele is a CEO who stands alongside you and helps direct you through counsel and enquiry. Her legacy forms a large chapter in our organisational history and has shaped our organisational culture as a great place to work. Her contributions have been invaluable, and she will be greatly missed.”  

During the transition period, a process will be initiated for a new CEO who will build upon Michele’s legacy and lead Asthma Australia into its next phase of growth and impact.
