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.

On returning to Australia, Tom joined Credit Suisse Investment Bank, as a Managing Director responsible for clients in the transport, infrastructure, power and utilities sectors. He is currently an Executive Director with Macquarie Capital and Head of Infrastructure, ANZ.
