Ron Gauci is not your average CEO. Thankfully, The Practice is not your average business and personal wealth advisory firm.
Ron is a dynamic and inspirational transformation and business growth specialist, having taken on some of the most difficult commercial and brand reputational challenges. Most notably, Ron was appointed CEO of the Melbourne Storm in the aftermath of the devastating salary cap rorting scandal which threatened the club’s very survival.
Previously, Ron was CEO of Melbourne’s iconic Federation Square, the financially challenged Melbourne Polytechnic (formerly NMIT), and the Aust/NZ operations of the US based global technology company Verizon Business. In each of these organisations he developed and executed a significant transformation and growth program.
He has held senior leadership and executive roles in ASX & NYSE listed, global multinational, joint venture and government organisations including Microsoft, Telstra and IBM, as well as directorships in a range of not-for-profit and startup ventures. He continues to sit on several boards across a variety of industries.
So why would a “turnaround” CEO join The Practice? Simply, Ron sought a business with great potential that he could help grow and realise the significant opportunities for the short and long term. The Practice, being a stable organisation with great people, culture and service offerings with a powerful mission of “Liberating People’s Lifestyles”, fit the bill perfectly.
Ron is married with five children and five grandchildren. He has a long history of active involvement in sport, is a keen golfer, and is passionate about music: he’s a member of the executive band Big Kahuna which regularly gigs around town. He’s an avid supporter and member of the Essendon Football Club, Melbourne Victory and Melbourne Storm.
