Anneke Du Toit, an audit and assurance partner with Deloitte in Melbourne, has joined the board of AGRF, which provides innovative genomic services and solutions via laboratories across Australia.

Du Toit is pushing two decades with Deloitte, after an earlier stint with PwC in South Africa. As Deloitte Private leader for the Victorian market, she has a specific focus on fast growing companies within the health and biotechnology sector.

The AGRF was founded in 1997 as a collaboration between the University of Queensland and the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute (WEHI) with the aim of establishing Australia as a world leader in genomic science and technology, and provides a wide range of sequencing services spanning biomedicine, plant and animal science, microbiology, evolutionary biology and biodiversity to the academic, applied research and industry sectors.

Andrew Culley has been with Deloitte in Adelaide since 2010 following a decade as a management consulting partner at local accounting and advisory acquisition MHM. He previously spent a brief stint as Deloitte’s technology advisory lead partner in Sydney, before then serving as managing partner of the firm’s South Australian practice. In 2018, he was appointed as Deloitte Private leader, and also serves as global Family Enterprise head.

He has now joined the board of Adelaide UNESCO City of Music, which received its designation in 2015 as one of roughly five dozen music hot-spots around the world. Established in 2004, the UNESCO Creative Cities network seeks to promote the inclusion of the creative industries as a cornerstone of sustainable urban development. The organisation said that Culley’s appointment would add important business and planning expertise.
