As part of TPG’s development programme, Rebecca has acted as a board observer over the past year.  In this role Rebecca performed outstandingly as she took the opportunity to gain a wider understanding of the business and business governance.

"We are very pleased and fortunate to have Rebecca on the TPG board. Rebecca’s experience and expertise in business development and strategic advisory combined with her astute business awareness will ensure she is a positive contributor to TPG’s board" says TPG’s Managing Director Wayne Crowley.
