Malcolm Garrow


At the end of 2023 Malcolm retired (or as he calls it “rebalanced”) after 37 years of paid work. With a degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Melbourne and a MBA from the London Business School, during Malcolm’s for-profit sector career he was a partner at Strategy& (formerly known as Booz & Company and now part of PwC) where he worked across a range of industries including energy, utilities and banking on business strategy, organisational transformation and performance improvement projects. He also spent 20 years working in strategy, operational and procurement roles for multinational energy companies, including 10 years overseas in Singapore, the UK and the USA. Then in 2016 he decided to align his “head and heart” and made the move to the for-purpose sector joining Social Ventures Australia (SVA) where he was a Director and Executive Director of their Consulting business and gained experience supporting for-purpose clients in a range of sectors including Employment, Housing, Disability, Alcohol & Drugs and First Nations. It was while working at SVA that Malcolm first met Jaison and the team from Good Cycles. Malcolm passionately believes that organisations such as Good Cycles play a critical role in supporting people to break the cycle of disadvantage by providing a pathway into secure, rewarding employment. Consequently he is excited about the opportunity to support them to grow and increase their impact.
