Bill Munro (Chairman)
A Member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, Bill brings to the Board of Calan Williams Racing Pty Ltd not only long experience in governance, finance and commercial practice but also in leadership and community service.
For many years prior to his retirement from full-time employment in 2014, Bill was Director of Finance and Administration for Western Irrigation Pty Ltd and retains an interest in its operations. He was one of three key people who, over the years, developed the company from its beginnings as a small irrigation contractor to its present position as an industry leader in almost all aspects of the water industry in Western Australia.
Bill is currently Chairman (Western Australia) of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and a member of their National Board. His past experience has included roles as Chairman of the Melville-Cockburn Chamber of Commerce, Chairman of the Royal West Australian Institute for the Blind, Board Member of the State Housing Commission of Western Australia and State Manager of BT Australia Ltd. He is a member of the Royal Australian Regiment Association and a Sub-warden of the West Australian State War Memorial.
Bill’s passion for excellence is reflected in the surprising twist that he is a passionate gourmet cook, studying for a Master’s Degree in Gastronomic Tourism and National Argentier of La Chaine des Rôtisseurs!
