Chief Executive Officer

Patrick Walker

Patrick joined the Sports Foundation as CEO in 2014, following a successful business career as a member of the leadership team of global consulting firm PwC.

He has played sport all his life – including cricket, rugby union and athletics (javelin) at school - but his first love was and is football (soccer), which he played at semi-professional level and still plays weekly in the local Masters competitions.

Patrick is passionate about the social and community benefits of sport, and has dedicated this phase of his career to raising funds to help more Australians enjoy the positive health and social impacts of sports participation.

Our partnership managers are dedicated to helping ensure your sport has the funds it needs.

Our partnership manager, Michael, spent 2 hours with us explaining foundations and the pitfalls. We were so impressed with him, and then he came back a few weeks later. He went above and beyond expectations.
