Tom Butcher


(appointed June 2018)

Children are our future. I am all in for kid’s heath to ensure every child today, tomorrow and for generations to come has access to the best possible healthcare whenever and wherever they need it.”

Having spent a lot of time as a young boy in doctors' rooms and hospitals, Tom Butcher holds a personal connection to the work done by the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network. Thankfully, his health eventually improved and he went on to study commerce at university before landing a job with accounting firm Arthur Andersen in London that took him around the world on various work assignments.  

On returning to Australia, Tom continued his career in investment banking. Today, he is a Managing Director with Credit Suisse Investment Bank, responsible for clients in the transport, infrastructure, power and utilities sectors. His international experience and the variety of his work gives a diverse and global perspective to Tom’s approach to his role on the Board. A former trumpet player and dedicated squash fan, Tom has some exciting goals for the Foundation in the future.
