Legacy Australia Announces New CEO: Graham Boyd

Posted on | By Legacy Australia


Mr Graham Boyd will lead Legacy into its Centenary in 2023

Legacy Australia wishes to advise that Mr Scott Warr has resigned as Chief Executive Officer, with effect from 4 March 2022.

Mr Warr was appointed CEO in June 2018 and within a very short time, he brought stability and purpose to Legacy within the office management structure. Scott has indicated that he has other challenges in life that he wishes to pursue, and we extend our most sincere gratitude to Scott and wish him the very best in his new endeavours.

Legacy Australia is also pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Graham Boyd as Chief Executive Officer.

Graham served with the Royal Australian Navy for 11 years in numerous roles, including Staff Officer (Supply) to the Director of Naval Manning and Policy; Aide-de-Camp to the Governor of Tasmania for Australia’s Bicentennial year; Secretary to the Commander of the Australian Submarine Squadron and Deputy Supply Officer on the river class destroyer HMAS Parramatta.

Graham joined Legacy in 1991 when he was inducted as a Legatee, joining the Ryde-Eastwood Division, before becoming CEO of Sydney Legacy in 1997, a position he held for over seven years. Before joining Legacy Club Services in 2019, Graham was Chairman of the St George Sutherland Division of Sydney Legacy until his appointment as Director Fundraising Marketing and Communications at Legacy Club Services.

Legacy Australia’s Chairman Legatee Eric Easterbrook said that, although he was extremely grateful for Mr Warr’s commitment as CEO, he was confident that Mr Boyd would continue promoting Legacy’s work to an extremely high standard.

“Graham’s dedication to Legacy, both as a Legatee and staff member, has been evident for over 30 years. He truly understands Legacy’s purpose and the importance of keeping the promise to our veterans’ families,” Legatee Easterbrook said.

Graham Boyd said he was extremely honoured by the appointment.

“Being able to represent Legacy Australia as CEO is an enormous privilege and I am looking forward to what lies ahead for Legacy, especially for our Centenary next year,” Mr Boyd said.

As one of Australia’s oldest and most iconic charities, Legacy supports 43,000 families of Australian Defence Force personnel who have given their lives or their health in service of their country.
