He had a successful career in the electrical industry, founding an electrical contracting business in 1971.
He operated the business until 2001, when he decided to explore other interests within the electrical field. Throughout his career, Ross was appointed to the Electrical Licensing Board, where he served for six years (1994-2000). Subsequently, he was appointed as a Sessional Member (Vocational Stream) of the State Administrative Tribunal (SAT), a role he still holds today.
In 2013, Ross was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. Undeterred, he joined Prost! Exercise 4 Prostate Cancer’s gym and remains an active participant, attending at least two sessions per week. He fully embraces Prost’s mantra of Muscle Mateship and Mood.
Shortly after joining Prost!, Ross was appointed by the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) as the Support Group Leader for Prost!, a position he held for a decade. He further contributed to the organisation by joining the Prost board, where he served as secretary and chairperson at various times.
In 2021, Ross decided to step down from the roles of Support Group Leader and Chairperson but continues to stay connected and involved in the organisation’s activities as a strong supporter of their work.
Ross contributed to PCFA when he was appointed to the National Support and Community Outreach Committee (NSCOC) until it disbanded in 2021.
Ross brings to the ConnectGroups Board a wealth of knowledge and experience gained through his journey as a cancer survivor. He played a pivotal role in successfully leading an innovative non-profit organisation (NFP) to growth, helping numerous men regain their confidence and improve their mental and physical wellness.
