After a distinguished career in journalism, Bob Cronin retired in October 2016 as editor-in-chief of the West Australian newspapers. Having worked for seven newspapers in Australia, and editor of four, Bob has won several awards for his journalistic leadership including the Order of Australia in 2011 and the Walkley Award in 2014. Outside of journalism, Bob was also the founding director of Information Radio (radio for the print handicapped), former chairman of Oz Concert Inc, former member of the council of Celebrate WA, former governor of the WA Museum Foundation, and a former director of Scitech. He was also a committee member of Project Employ Youth, which found jobs for 1000 young West Australians during the recession of the 1990s. Currently, Bob is a director/trustee of the Bravery Trust which provides assistance to incapacitated current and former members of the Australian Defence Force and the families of deceased and incapacitated members.

Every leader, every motivator of people, every agitator of change, was once inspired by someone else. A light was switched on, a clear path illuminated, often in rocky seas and sometimes when least expected. Seek inspiration in CCI’s Lighthouse Leadership Series that brings together leaders in business, captains of industry, champions of people and shapers of change.
