“Queenslanders have long been demanding to get involved with UnLtd and to further support each other.
“We’re very happy to bring UnLtd to life in this new market with some of our signature events and initiatives, and make an even bigger impact for young people at risk.
“We recently achieved our long-term goal of $100million of value for our charity partners and have now embarked on an ambitious plan to double that impact over the next three years, increasing the number of young lives that we can positively impact.”
Gaffney said: “I’m delighted to step into this new role at UnLtd. I’ve always loved the work they do for their charity partners and to support our industry. I can’t wait to start using my skills and networks to bring UnLtd’s mission to life in Queensland.
