Meet our new CEO  

He’s taking up the reins of Mates4Mates in March, and with his background in the Royal Australian Navy and extensive knowledge of international and Australian business management, we’re excited to have him join the team. We sat down to ask him a few questions, so you can get to know our new CEO, Troy Watson.

Q: What are you looking forward to in joining Mates4Mates?
A: I am very keen to learn about the Family Recovery Centres, the services and our corporate partners, but most of all I’m looking forward to meeting as many Mates as I can. I believe there is huge scope for Mates4Mates to grow and improve our services, and that’s something I’m really excited about.

Got a spare minute? Watch our new video and learn a little more about our services and how we help. Thanks to the awesome team at OnVideo Media for creating the video for us and a shout out to our Mates who took part in the filming! 
We're getting ready for Kokoda
We're seven weeks out from sending our Mates, and the team from Australian Defence Apparel, to Papua New Guinea to trek Kokoda. This trip is one of our annual Rehabilitation Adventure Challenges, and this year is set to be one to remember, with Ambassador Dan Keighran VC joining us on the trek! 

Our Rehabilitation Adventure Challenges are funded through corporate sponsorship and donations. You can get behind the team and encourage them as they fundraise to pay it forward, so another Mate can trek Kokoda next year.  Donate to our Everyday Hero Page
