After 12 years on the board, in 2020 Elizabeth Jameson became the President and Chair of RACQ - a modern-day member mutual, incorporating a 115 year old roadside assistance business with APRA regulated insurance and banking businesses.
Elizabeth also maintains an active portfolio of other directorships, presently as Chair of Queensland Theatre and a board member of John Villiers Trust and the Endeavour Foundation. Her past directorships have also included the boards of over 20 organisations, for-profit and not-for-profit.
Prior to this, in 2002, after almost 15 years as a corporate/commercial lawyer, including as a partner of national law firm Deacons (now Norton Rose) and 10 years as a practising director, Elizabeth founded Board Matters and its associated governance legal practice, Board Matters Legal. In 2020, Elizabeth transitioned to the role of Founder Consultant at Board Matters which today is a team of specialist governance, legal and strategy consultants.
In her spare time, Elizabeth toils away at a PhD in corporate governance, in which she is investigating the role of trust in the design of directors duties laws in Australia and the implications for directors in practice today.
