NSW Public Service Commissioner
Emma Hogan was appointed the NSW Public Service Commissioner in May 2018, after almost two decades in the private sector, working across several sectors at companies that include Foxtel, Qantas and Woolworths.
Emma’s career spans executive leadership roles in people, culture, communications, customer experience, digital, business transformation, and project management in environments that have included start-up, growth, acquisition, disruption, maturation and divestment. Emma is a Non-Executive director on the board of AIME (Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience) and in 2015, created her own for-purpose foundation; ‘Rainbow Jane’ which has so far donated over $70,000 to charity and start-up social enterprises.
Emma holds post graduate qualifications in HR from Deakin University and is a graduate of the Stanford University Executive Program.
Emma developed and led a number of programs for women in her role at Foxtel including the “Foxtel Pay it Forward” program which focused on supporting women in creating effective networks and encouraging them to step up for internal promotions in order to develop a pipeline of future leaders.
In 2017 Emma compiled a book called ‘Inspired Kindness’ which interviewed 30 ordinary leaders doing something extraordinary to change the world. The book raised $50,000 for the next generation of social entrepreneurs in the form of 5 x $10,000 grants. Three of these grants were awards to female philanthropists, including Jacinta McDonnell at Human Kind Project, Madeleine Buchner at Little Dreamers, and Carmen Platt from The Generous and the Grateful.
