Naomi Flutter appointed Pro-Chancellor of ANU

28 June 2017

The Australian National University (ANU) has announced that Naomi Flutter, a former Research School of Economics (RSE) student, will be the University’s next Pro-Chancellor.

Naomi Flutter completed a Bachelor of Economics (Honours) degree in Economic History in 1994; her thesis supervisor was Selwyn Cornish. The thesis covered an historical analysis of population growth in Australia, and Naomi graduated wtih First Class Honours in Economic History.

On the basis of her results in economic history and her contributions to non-academic activities on and off the campus, Naomi was awarded the Tillyard Prize, the highest award given by the ANU to an undergraduate student.

Naomi subsequently undertook work for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Canberra and in refugee camps in Kenya and Nepal. In 1996 she received the Foundation for Young Australians’ Sir Edward ‘Weary’ Dunlop Memorial Award. Naomi then completed a Master of Public Policy at the JF Kennedy School of Public Policy at Harvard University.

Since 1998, Naomi has worked as a senior executive at Deutsche Bank in Sydney. In 2013, she was appointed the head of Deutsche Bank’s Global Transaction Banking Division for Australia and New Zealand.

Naomi was inducted into the ANU College of Business and Economics (CBE) Hall of Fame in 2015, and has been a member of the ANU Council since July 2014.

The ANU’s first Pro-Chancellor was Dr H C Coombs, the first Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia and later Chancellor of the ANU.

"We are delighted by the news that a distinguished alumni from our Honours program has been appointed as Pro-Chancellor at ANU," said Rabee Tourky, Director of RSE.

"Naomi's expertise in Financial Economics will undoubtedly be a great asset for Council and the University."
