Western Australian of the Year to speak at Meridian Event

Our congratulations go out to David Flanagan on being awarded the Western Australian of the Year. A well deserved accolade for a successful business leader and philanthropist.

David  is a geologist by trade but he’s also an entrepreneur who, in just ten years, built Australia’s fifth largest iron ore exporter Atlas Iron Limited. Atlas is a top 100 ASX-listed company which employs more than 600 people and generates revenues approaching $1 billion per annum.

David's contribution to Western Australia goes beyond the mine-site. He’s renowned for his personal philanthropic contributions to a variety of charities and Aboriginal organisations winning the inaugural Governor’s Award for Giving in 2011. David was also the recipient of the prestigious Eisenhower Fellowship in 2013. He traveled to the United States to investigate models of governance in foundations and charitable organisations.

David is the Chancellor of Murdoch University, he’s on the board of Giving West and the Australian Institute of Company Directors. David is a member of the Australian Prospecting Mining Hall of Fame.

Come along to our Meet the Philanthropist event later this month and enjoy a keynote address by David, network with other successful business owners and professionals and learn more about how Meridian's sponsored projects are going.

Light refreshments will be provided.
