TONY KIRWIN - PRESIDENT & FOUNDER
Member Australian Institute of Company Directors
Tony Kirwan has always had a heart for the poor and needy, which led him to run a feeding program in Cairns, and involvement with youth ministry in Australia for many years.
God continued to grow his passion to see children rescued from poverty and abuse, and after running his own electrical contracting company for ten years, he sold everything and began Destiny Rescue in 2001.
Tony believes in leading from the front. Residing in Thailand, he and his teams around the world are actively involved in the rescue of young children from the sex industry and building an organisation that combats this crime against humanity.
Joshua is Finance Head, Energy and Resources Asia-Pacific at Sodexo and has served on a number of boards, usually in the capacity of company secretary. He enjoys helping teams and mentoring people to succeed.
Joshua has a strong background in helping executive teams turn around companies. Starting out in the manufacturing industry, he moved to the services industry, where his path crossed with Fiona Berkin’s at Morris Corporation, where both were members of the executive team. Fiona’s excitement for her new role and Destiny Rescue’s cause was infectious and he readily accepted the offer to join our Board. The diversity of his experience and track record in helping teams succeed will no doubt be valuable in fulfilling our vision and meeting our ambitious goals.
Chris has had a connection with Destiny Rescue for a number of years as a donor and passionate supporter and accepted our invitation to join the Board in September 2019. He has held senior sales executive positions for over a decade, initially as Vice President of Sales at ANZ and, since 2017, as Vice President of Sales – Asia Pacific at the Diligent Corporation.
LACHLAN ANDERSON – TREASURER

He is currently working as a Financial Planner in Melbourne, Victoria and believes this experience has helped and continues to help him provide insights and effective leadership for Destiny Rescue.
