He has served on the boards of some of Queensland’s largest organisations, including Queensland Investment Corporation (QIC), Queensland Rail, Sunsuper and UnitingCare, and he has held senior executive positions in both commercial and not-for-profit organisations.
Prior to his retirement from full-time employment, Dawson was a General Manager for QIC, one of Australia’s major institutional investors with over $70 billion in funds under management for its clients.
