Joe Hanlon

Chief Operating Officer

Joe is responsible for identifying and developing the Foundation’s business and commercial fundraising income base. This includes developing sponsorship and partnership programs with the Gold Coast’s corporate sector and overseeing the Foundation’s marquee fundraising events. Joe also leads the Foundation’s day-to-day operations including serviced delivery of the Cancer Patient Transport Service and Family Emergency Accommodation Service.

Joe brings a wealth of experience in operations and marketing to his role, having worked in the corporate and commercial business sector for more than 20 years working with some of Australia’s most recognised brands. In that time, Joe owned two successful small businesses on the Gold Coast, before leading commercial sponsorship acquisition for the Gold Coast Blaze National Basketball League franchise and the Brisbane Roar A League Football Club.

Joe spends every spare minute with his family, quite often going to the beach. He enjoys a good cook up, basketball, getting involved in community activities, and can’t survive without his Sunday afternoon nanna nap. Joe also loves his early cup of espresso and has a daily standing order at the Coffee Bug located in the hospital.
