We are grateful for God’s provision of a new Chancellor. Mr Andrew Rankin accepted an invitation from The Rt Revd Peter Grice to become his legal advisor, and was duly licensed on 20 September 2021.
Andrew is an experienced corporate and commercial lawyer with more than 25 years’ experience. He regularly works with domestic and international clients, both private companies and publicly listed companies, on mergers & acquisitions, capital raisings, private equity and competition law matters. He has particularly strong experience in acting for those in the financial services, healthcare, aged care and agribusiness sectors, as well as significant experience advising charitable and not-for-profit entities on their establishment, structuring, obtaining tax concessions and duties of their officeholders.
Andrew and his family are active members in their church in Southern Queensland Diocese.
We now formally welcome Andrew to our Diocesan Family, a worthy successor to the redoubtable Margo Purcell who stepped down after synod last year.
(Archdeacon John Barnes and Rev’d Jennifer Hercott, Registrar joined with Bishop Peter in Rockhampton to present Andrew with his licence.)
