HIV Foundation Queensland appoints interim CEO
HIV Foundation Queensland (HIVFQ) has appointed a new interim CEO: Tony Majer has joined the foundation to drive its establishment and oversee day-to-day operations.
Majer (pictured) is originally from Cairns, studied commerce and law at university and went on to become a lawyer before running the family tiling business, Majer Tiles, for 18 years.
Majer Tiles was acquired by Beaumont Tiles last year and Majer is now on long service leave from his managing director role.
Majer said he was looking forward to leading the newly established foundation.
“One of the key drivers for me in accepting this role was the expertise and passion that exists in the foundation's board, combined with the government's commitment to making HIV/AIDS a priority health issue,” Majer said.
“After nearly two decades in the private sector leading a successful business through establishment, acquisition and growth, I am looking forward to putting these skills to use for the foundation.”
The foundation was established in December last year, evolving from the Ministerial Advisory Committee on HIV/AIDS.
