Socceroo coach Ange Postecoglou has been named alongside a State Premier and leaders of business, academia, arts, media and finance as having exemplary leadership skills.
‘What unites them is the energy they draw on again and again to drive change, withstand criticism, and inspire others to join their cause.
‘They are the leaders who are making things happen,’ explained the financial publication of the Boss True Leaders 2015 list.
The list is voted on by a five-person panel of experts.
This included Judge Jane McAloon (Former BHP Billiton President Governance & Group Company Secretary), Michael Traill (Social Ventures Australia executive director), Toby Hall (St Vincents Health Group CEO), Amanda Harkness (ASX Group General Counsel and company secretary) and Steve Tucker (Koda Capital Chairman).
In the case of the Asian Cup winning Socceroos boss, Judge McAloon said Postecoglou had ‘brought about a "coming of age" for football in Australia’.
Others named in the list include NSW Premier Mike Baird, Australian of the Year Rosie Batty and Mike Kane, Boral CEO.
