Mr Dorney is an independent investment banker whose previous professional roles include head of corporate finance and capital markets for Australasia for CITIC CLSA Capital Markets.

He has also been an investment committee member of the Little Company of Mary (Calvary Healthcare) and is a knight of the Order of Malta.

“The appointment of Mark as chairman of Catholic Schools NSW and new directors Gráinne McCormack, Jenny Allen, and Anna Dickinson is an exciting new chapter of renewal in Catholic education,” Archbishop Fisher said.

“Mark’s longstanding involvement in the life of the Church, from the parish level to his charitable works as a Knight of Malta, makes him a great addition to the Board of Catholic Schools NSW,” he said.

“This lengthy service is commensurate to his wealth of knowledge and experience in business and governance.”

Also new to the Catholic Schools NSW board are engineering senior executive Gráinne McCormack, former executive director of schools in the Bathurst diocese Jenny Allen, and former principal of Loreto College, Kirribilli, Anna Dickinson.
