About RetireAustralia | The Verge at Burleigh

Dr Brett Robinson

Chief Executive Officer

“Purpose is the essence of why we exist. I want to be part of a business that cares for and supports people.”

As Chief Executive Officer of RetireAustralia, Brett brings a wealth of unique and complementary experiences to the role. Not only does he have over a decade of CEO and executive leadership experience in organisations founded on care, health and wellbeing, but he’s a medical doctor and former professional rugby player.

Brett’s rugby career saw him play 16 test matches for the Wallabies and take on the role of the inaugural captain of the ACT Brumbies, after which he obtained a PhD in Clinical Orthopaedics from Oxford University. Off the field, Brett made a significant contribution to his sport as the General Manager of the Australian Rugby Union’s High Performance Unit.

Brett’s medical training helped shape his thinking, analytical and leadership styles. He says the most important part of any patient interaction is taking his or her medical history – asking the right questions, really listening to their answers, and providing the time and space to get a sense of the real issues at play.

Brett brings this same patience, empathy and compassion to his role as CEO.

“Purpose is the essence of why we exist. I want to be part of a business that cares for and supports people. At RetireAustralia, you’re not a number, you’re someone who is really important to us and our team.”
