Marina Go has added another major company to her boards portfolio, having just been appointed as a non-executive director at 7-Eleven Stores.
Marina takes on the role on top of her current work as Chair of the Wests Tigers NRL Club and Office Brands, Australia’s largest independent business suppliers group. She is also a non-executive director of EnergyAustralia, Autosports Group, the Walkley Foundation and Chair of the Advisory Board for the Centre for Media Transition at The University of Technology Sydney.
With an extensive background in journalism and media, including in CEO and General Manager positions, she was the founding publisher of Women’s Agenda.
7-Eleven chairman Michael Smith said Marina’s appointment adds strength and diversity to the board, given her extensive experience across digital and traditional media, retail and franchising, compliance and governance, and driving change and transformation, along with her visionary leadership.
“With the business pursuing a significant growth and transformation strategy, Marina’s remarkable career and insights will significantly enhance the Board’s contribution,” he said.
“Further, as we seek to deepen our understanding of the many cultures within our business and franchise network, Marina’s unique perspective will propel our journey.”
Marina has an MBA from The Australian Graduate School of Management, and wrote the business book for women, Break Through: 20 Success Strategies for Female Leaders.
On the new appointment, Marina said: “I am thrilled to be joining the board of the country’s most successful private retailer as 7-Eleven evolves to remain best at serving the needs and wants of the convenience and fuel customer in an increasingly challenged environment. These are exciting times for customers and stakeholders.”
