Damien Hodgkinson (He/Him)
Senior Partner at Olvera Advisors
Damien has played a significant role in the LGBTIQ community for over 12 years. As treasurer and then president of the Bobby Goldsmith Foundation, he transitioned the organisation from one focused on charity to one of empowerment. In his role as treasurer and co-chair of Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras (SGLMG), Damien oversaw a dramatic restructuring that helped bring the organisation back into surplus. He re-established its giving and foundation programme and realigned its community focus as an LGBTIQ arts and cultural organisation.
Damien is a senior partner at Olvera Advisors, a Sydney based transformation and restructuring firm. He also sits on a number of company boards and is a firm believer in growth and change. A proponent of independent government, Damien has been involved in fundraising for independents for several state and federal elections.
