Justine Colyer

Recommend Justine:


I have 25 years experience in the public, private and non-profit sectors in Australia, the UK and Europe and I’ve done everything from run a pub to run a prison.

I work to support and promote the needs and rights of some of the most vulnerable people in our community. 

My skills and qualififcations focus on strategic planning, project management, change management and governance.

For six years I’ve been the CEO of Rise which offers housing and services for people with mental health issues, a disability, the aged, youth at risk, the homeless, those dealing with family and domestic violence, and the carers for all those people.  

I’m a Distinguished Fellow of Leadership WA , one of the premier leadership programs in the WA and the winner of the WA Telstra Businesswomen’s Award (Community and Government) 2014.
