36 ANNE WARD (TC 1978) After a successful career as a corporate lawyer, including stints as partner at Minter Ellison and Herbert Geer, and as general counsel at NAB, Anne is now blazing a trail as a professional company director. Currently on the boards of ASX-listed MYOB Group and Redbubble, Anne is also independent chairman at Colonial First State Investments and Qantas Superannuation, as well as a council member at RMIT University. She recently stepped down as chairman of the Zoos Victoria board where she spent more than five years overseeing its world-leading achievements in conservation, animal welfare, tourism and education. This diverse portfolio suits Anne’s love of variety and intellectual challenge. As she quipped recently, ‘Thirty-five years after leaving College, I’m still trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up!’ Proud mum to three adult sons – a civil engineer, a mathematician and an astro- physicist, Anne lives in Melbourne with husband John and their two cats Oskar and Fenix. THE RIGHT REVEREND DR RICHARD TRELOAR (TC 1988) Richard Treloar was consecrated a bishop at St Paul’s Cathedral in Melbourne on 21 July 2018. He was then installed as the 13th Bishop of Gippsland on 18 August 2018 at St Paul’s Cathedral, Sale. At both services, the Trinity College connection was strong. Former directors of music Philip Nicholls and Michael Leighton Jones led the choristers, which included a number of former Trinity College and Canterbury Fellowship members. Michael composed an original anthem for the service at Sale, based on the prayer of St Richard of Chichester. The Gunaikurnai people are the traditional custodians of the land Richard oversees, and he was honoured to be welcomed to Country at his installation service by two local Indigenous clergy and other elders as part of a smoking ceremony. The Diocese of Gippsland has one of the most dispersed populations in south-east Australia, plus diverse demographics and industry. Hence, Richard spent the first six weeks of his new ministry visiting as many parishes, schools, chaplaincies, ecumenical partners and members of the community throughout the diocese as possible. A number of clergy currently serving in Richard’s diocese trained for ministry at the Trinity College Theological School. One Gippsland priest is an adjunct faculty member and some lay and ordained ministers from Gippsland study through online programs. Richard maintains a connection with the work of theological education as an honorary research associate of the University of Divinity. DR MAX ESSER (TC 1974) When Max was 16 he went on a two‑month school trip to India and travelled through the Himalayas. The trip prompted him to think about how he could travel while also contributing to society. Since then, Max has spent a large part of his life exploring the world and giving back, becoming one of Australia’s leading orthopaedic surgeons in the process. After finishing high school, Max enrolled at Trinity College and the University of Melbourne as a medical student. In his fourth year, he received a travel scholarship to Singapore, and later obtained another scholarship to Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Following his intern year, Max arranged a trip to China during the Cultural Revolution. Max has worked in general practice, training at the Royal Women’s Hospital and the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, and completed orthopaedic training in England, Ireland and America. He has also provided expert surgical training in countries such as Myanmar and China. Outside work, Max enjoys walking, horse riding and skiing. He is married to psychiatrist Kym Jenkins and has two adult children. He returned to Trinity earlier this year, where he was a guest at Dr Susan Lim’s (TC 1976) stem cell research dinner.
