Your Lungs, My Lungs

Tony Hyams AM. Tony was born in Melbourne and was educated at Melbourne Grammar. He graduated in 1969 from Melbourne University with degrees in Law and Commerce.  Tony is married to Ann and they have 3 children and 7 grandchildren.

After a short stint in the legal profession Tony turned to international banking and finance becoming head of Credit Suisse in Australia for most of his career.

In recent years he has been a professional director of many companies including the Melbourne Airport, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority, New Zealand’s largest printing company, the Military Superannuation Fund and as Chairman of the Commonwealth Government’s now $40 billion employee superannuation fund. He was involved with the World Economic Forum as a member of the Long-Term Investment Council and of the Role of Business Council and at annual meetings in Davos.

All of these activities stopped abruptly when in 2009 he was diagnosed with a rare incurable lung disease.  In his terms “a science fiction health adventure”.
