Tim Sarah has been appointed chair of the AnglicareSA Board and Believe Housing Australia (AnglicareSA Housing) Board.
The 54-year-old South Australian is joint managing director of the iconic construction company Sarah Group – the legacy of which spans three generations across the state.
Mr Sarah’s company has project managed the construction of the d’Arenberg Cube in McLaren Vale and, currently, the $14.9 million Allan Scott Headquarters alongside the hallowed turf of Alberton Oval.
“It is an honour to be able to be involved in AnglicareSA,” said Mr Sarah. “AnglicareSA is one of the great institutions of the state and for me to be able to play my part is humbling and deeply satisfying.”
Mr Sarah said AnglicareSA’s extent and range of services, its dedicated employees, and resources meant it was best placed in SA to serve more South Australians in need than ever before.
AnglicareSA CEO Grant Reubenicht said Mr Sarah’s 30 years of business acumen, his passion for social justice, and his not-for-profit board experience, would be of significant benefit to AnglicareSA and South Australians in need now and in the future.
Mr Sarah was appointed Chair of the AnglicareSA Board and the Believe Housing Australia (AnglicareSA Housing) Board in November following the retirement of Bruce Linn AM after nine years at the helm.
Mr Sarah has served as board member of the Believe Housing Australia (AnglicareSA Housing) Board and as chair of AnglicareSA’s Audit and Risk Committee since 2019 and 2020 respectively. He has been a member of and led the boards of other not-for-profit organisations in South Australia over the past decade.
Mr Sarah was 24-years-old when he and cousin James took over the company established by their grandfather in 1961. At the time, Mr Sarah was a Chartered Accountant with an economics degree from Adelaide University who had been working at Ernst & Young – one of the world’s Big Four accounting firms.
