Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP, chair of the Bishops Commission for Catholic Education, recently announced the appointment of Nicholas Moore as Mr Crafter’s replacement as chair of the NCEC.

Mr Moore was chief executive officer of the Macquarie Group for a decade and is chairman of Screen Australia, Sydney Opera House Trust, Centre for Independent Studies and the Smith Family.

Archbishop Fisher said Mr Moore would no doubt bring to the role “exemplary leadership, integrity, drive and vision”.

He also said the NCEC had benefitted greatly from Mr Crafter’s “vast and varied experience, having been a South Australian MP, including eight years as Education Minister”.

“During his time as chair, Greg dealt with three Prime Ministers and their Cabinets and helped to secure long-term funding vital to the future of our Catholic schools,” he said.
