Foodbank Australia has appointed GroupM CEO, Mark Lollback, as its latest board member.

Lollback has more than 20 years of global blue-chip marketing experience at brands including McDonald’s, Pepsi, Lipton and ANZ Bank. He assumed the role of GroupM Australia & New Zealand CEO in April 2016 and under his leadership GroupM won ‘Employer of the Year’ at the Women in Media Awards 2018 and was shortlisted in 2019. Lollback was also shortlisted for B&T Executive Leader of the Year in 2019.

Foodbank Australia Chair, Tony Froggatt, said the organisation is delighted Mark is joining the diverse group of professionals on its board as the landscape of food relief changes with the impact of COVID-19.

“We are thrilled to have Mark join the Foodbank family and look forward to working with him as our ‘new normal’ develops into what has been the most challenging year we’ve ever experienced,” Froggart said.

Lollback sits on the Board of the Media Federation Australia (MFA), the Association of Data-Driven Marketing & Advertising (ADMA) and the children’s charity, Be Centre, as well as being a mentor through the Marketing Academy. When hearing about Foodbank Australia working around the clock to meet the increase in demand for food relief at the start of the pandemic, Lollback wanted to contribute his skills to make a difference and reached out.

Lollback added: “It’s an honour to be joining the board of Foodbank Australia as an independent director. Foodbank has been fighting hunger and supporting Australians for nearly three decades. The Foodbank team and volunteers make a difference to thousands of families every day and have done an amazing job over the last six months dealing with floods, bushfires and now pandemic. COVID-19 has put pressure on all Australians and now, more than ever, Foodbank is a critical organisation supporting communities and restoring hope to people who are struggling with hardship and the stress of not knowing where their next meal is coming from.”

Prior to the pandemic, Foodbank was providing food relief to 815,000 Australians every month. At the height of lockdown, that number was estimated to be 1.4 million. In the last three months, Foodbank Australia has sourced more food and groceries than in the last three years and continues to work with its generous supporters, donors and the Federal Government to ensure the increased need is met.
