Cathy Heeley

Executive Director

Cathy is an Australian who has been working across Asia Pacific jurisdictions for 17 years. She launched her career with degrees in Economics from Australian National University and Law from the University of Melbourne along with an additional major in Accounting. Cathy wanted to be in management, but found the practice of law so appealing that she stayed.

She was a Senior Associate at a large Australian law firm before moving to Singapore to take up an inhouse role managing a department that spanned, at various times, legal, compliance and security. In this role Cathy worked across most of the Asia Pacific jurisdictions. Cathy has also worked in crisis management and, most recently, as the Director of Campus Operations & Student Affairs at Aidha, one of our partner organizations supporting migrant domestic workers in Singapore. Cathy continues to volunteer at Aidha as a mentor and with Touch Community Services delivering meals to the elderly.
