The Law Institute of Victoria has appointed experienced membership association and not-for-profit executive Adam Awty as its interim Chief Executive Officer.

He will start on 9 July 2018.

Mr Awty has extensive leadership, finance and company secretary experience in the membership association sector, having spent 18 years at CPA Australia.

He most recently served as interim Chief Executive at CPA Australia, reporting to the Board. Prior to that he held other senior roles including Chief Operating Officer – Commercial, Chief Financial Officer and Company Secretary and Financial Controller with CPA Australia.

LIV President Belinda Wilson said: “We are delighted that Adam Awty is joining the Law Institute as interim CEO while we conduct a full executive search for a permanent Chief Executive.

“Adam has strong experience in the membership organisation and not-for-profit sectors and has held several senior leadership positions at CPA Australia. He will bring valuable strategic membership knowledge and a commitment to innovation and collaboration across the LIV and the legal profession,” Ms Wilson said.

Mr Awty said: “I am delighted to join the Law Institute of Victoria as interim CEO and I look forward to working with the LIV Council, members, staff and key stakeholders across the legal profession and the Victorian community.”

Mr Awty is currently a Director of Pillars of Strength and is chair of the Victorian Ombudsman’s Audit and Risk Committee.

He has a Bachelor of Business (Accounting) from Monash University and is a Certified Practising Accountant.

Mr Awty joins the Law Institute after the CEO position became vacant in May. Ms Wilson has been acting Chief Executive Officer for the last two months and has continued her duties as President. Ms Wilson returns to being the full-time LIV President next week.
