Introducing our speakers: Rebecca Cutter and Michelle Dean
Michelle Dean is a Partner at Corrs Chambers Westgarth in the Commercial Litigation team. She is actively involved in the firm’s national management, being on an internal board and the Audit & Risk Committee. She has over 15 years’ experience in restructuring and insolvency, having worked in Perth, Melbourne and London. Michelle has worked closely with a number of major banks, corporates and insolvency practitioners both internationally and within Australia. She is also a committee member on the ARITA WA committee, including completing the last 12 months as the Chairperson. She is also a committee member on the WA Law Council of Australia Insolvency and Reconstruction Law Committee and the Federal Court Commercial and Corporations NPA User Group. Michelle is pleased to support RINWA in its efforts to promote diversity and, in particular, women in the restructuring and insolvency industry.
Rebecca has recently joined the Executive team at WA Return Recycle Renew, the company running the container deposit and recycling scheme coming to WA in June 2020, as the Head of Finance and Commercial. Prior to this she was CFO at Carnegie Clean Energy (an ASX listed WA renewable technology company) before leaving to take time off to have her second child. Starting in the UK, Rebecca took a rather unconventional career path that included a brief stint in charity marketing and running a watersports centre, but has found finance to be a surprisingly good fit that has allowed her to seek interesting roles in companies that share her values, including supporting and enabling the career success of women in the workplace. A firm believer in flexibility being available for all, for all reasons, she went part time at EY before having kids, and is now supported on the domestic front by her husband who has just opted to work 3 days a week whilst she works full time, albeit with one day a week from home.
