Tara Callinan and Emily Hobbs join the SGS partner group.

Over 10 years ago, SGS restructured to ensure that all employees had the opportunity to become owners of the business once they demonstrated their commitment to SGS' values and purpose. This has allowed SGS to effectively plan for succession and grow the business for greater impact said SGS CEO, Alison Holloway.

We are extremely proud to be an employee-owned business and to have an outstanding group of individuals in the SGS partner group. Partners are the major investors in the business and they set out their expectations for returns across community impact, culture and financial returns in the SGS Partner Charter. It's wonderful to see our employee-owned model growing, and we are confidently looking forward to further growth as a business and a partner group.

— Alison Holloway

Tara Callinan began her career at SGS in 2006 in an administration role and has since furthered her career by studying a Bachelor of Social Science and Environment, majoring in Indigenous Studies. Tara has long been a familiar and friendly face within the team and has held many positions including Executive Director and, more recently, Melbourne and Hobart Practice Leader and Associate. Tara demonstrates her commitment to social good through her work and interactions with our team and the wider community.

Emily Hobbs is a driven and committed team member dedicated to creating equal and diverse communities. Emily was the recipient of the SGS funded Graham Larcombe Scholarship at Melbourne University before joining our team. The scholarship is awarded to a student who upholds and demonstrates the values of the late Graham Larcombe, who was a champion of the people and supported social justice. Emily continues to show these values and is always considered in her approach to work by addressing issues of equality. Since joining the team, Emily has shown incredible leadership and is always willing to offer support to the team.

Congratulations Tara and Emily.
