< Back to Board of Directors

Ms Faraone has extensive experience in the VET sector, working with industry, RTOs and at TAFE.  Ms Faraone has been at Holmesglen since mid-2003 and in her previous role as Executive Director, Educational Development and Design, Mary was instrumental in leading the Institute’s teaching and learning, securing a number of significant national and international commercial projects and the introduction of higher education.  The Institute is now widely recognised as a leader in non-university higher education delivery.


Since commencing as Chief Executive in October 2013, Mary has embarked on an organisational renewal agenda which aims to build on the Institute’s history and reputation and lead the Institute in the next phase of its journey as a relevant and contemporary tertiary provider.  Mary is committed to TAFE and the role of public education in social inclusion and social cohesion and ensuring TAFE thrives in the contestable market.
