John Rogerson was appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Drug Foundation (ADF) in 2008.  He has been with the ADF since October 1994 as General Manager (Operations), and was appointed Deputy Chief Executive and Director of the Foundation’s Good Sports program in 2000.

During this time, the Good Sports program expanded from a research pilot in rural Victoria to working with more than 5000 community sporting clubs across the nation.

John will be presenting at the upcoming the Young People at Risk Forum, taking place on the 26th and 27th June 2014 at the Rendezvous Grand Hotel in Melbourne.

Prior to working at the ADF, John spent 10 years in the agriculture industry as the Director of Public Affairs in the Department of Primary Industries, and was also the founding General Manager of Agmedia, a publishing and advertising company. He has post-graduate qualifications in Business Administration.

John has overseen the expansion of the ADF’s work into all states and territories (apart from Western Australia) since being appointed the CEO.  He has contributed to the development of new partnerships with elite sport, Australian Defence Forces and workplaces to shift Australia’s drinking culture through evidence-based policy.

He is also a member of a number of key advisory and lobbying groups including the National Alliance for Action on Alcohol, Liquor Control Advisory Council (Victoria) and the Expert Advisory Group-whole-of-government Victorian Alcohol and Drug Strategy.
