The Federal Government has appointed Warren Mundine AO as a part-time non-executive Director on the SBS Board.

Mundine is also a regular media performer providing social commentary on Indigenous issues.

His appointment fills a vacancy created with the retirement of Dr Bulent Hass Dellal on 2 June 2020 and the subsequent appointment of an existing non-executive Director, Mr George Savvides AM, to the position of Chair of the SBS Board on 9 July 2020.

Minister for Communications, Cyber Safety and the Arts, the Hon Paul Fletcher MP, congratulated Mr Mundine on his appointment to the SBS Board.

“Mr Mundine is a distinguished Australian. He will be a valuable addition to the SBS Board, bringing over 40 years of experience in roles across government, business and the community sector,”

Mr Mundine is a member of the Bundjalung, Gumbaynggirr and Yuin people of NSW.

He is Chairman of the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation and has served as Chairman and Director of the NASIDA Dance College and Foundation.
