Alan Coates was appointed the inaugural Chief Executive Officer of The Cancer Council Australia (then the Australian Cancer Society) in 1998 and has since amassed achievements in the areas of advocacy, alliances and member services. Under his stewardship, The Cancer Council Australia has become recognised as Australia's peak non-government cancer control organisation, influencing and guiding national cancer control policy and action. His rare combination of intellect, clinical knowledge, leadership, skilful advocacy and diplomacy has greatly contributed to reducing the burden and impact of cancer in Australia.
