David Baber Joins Fisher Leadership
David Baber has joined Fisher Leadership as Associate Partner specialising in their government and not-for-profit practices, providing executive search at the most senior levels and offering talent advisory solutions.
Throughout his HR career in ASX Top 20 businesses and state government, David has always believed in supporting leaders to become more effective at what they do and how they work with those around them. As a widely experienced strategic HR executive, David contributes to an RMIT industry advisory group and sits on a committee with the Australian Human Resources Institute. As a key member of the team, David enjoys the opportunity to apply his knowledge and experience to assist exceptional decision-makers and future leaders to become truly effective as positive agents of change.
"You meet a lot of people coming out of the corporate roles who want a chance to contribute in the not for profit sectors. But that’s not enough to qualify as an agent for social impact. You’ve got to be genuinely passionate about the specific leadership opportunity and come prepared to use that passion as the motivation to drive effective outcomes."
With strong community values, David feels an alignment with Fisher Leadership’s commitment to partnering with clients who drive positive social impact. He serves on the Board of a not for profit that responds to educational disadvantage and now, in his role, will have the opportunity to engage with leaders of government departments and not-for-profits to contribute to important social outcomes. David is also delighted to join an organisation that directly impacts the diversity agenda.
"Promoting gender parity and other forms of diversity in leadership is a really welcome aspect of joining Fisher Leadership. For me personally, working alongside the diverse, successful and highly focused team, with its international reach and outstanding reputation, is both energising and inspiring."
