Matthew Hayden

Managing Director

 

Since retiring from all forms of international cricket, Matthew has focused on building a career as a businessman, media personality, speaker, and cricket commentator (India). He is currently brand ambassador for a range of national and international brands including Century Batteries, Mahindra (automotive and farm machinery), and Northern Territory Tourism. Through his many philanthropic projects, he is also involved with a range of Australia’s leading companies, including Macquarie Bank and Shimano.

 

With a long and storied history of giving back – and also inspiring others to do so – he is currently involved in supporting more than a dozen charities and not-for-profit organisations around Australia. In both his business ventures and charity ventures, Matthew believes in building long-term relationships with good people who aim to do good things.

Away from business, media, public speaking and charitable duties, he is also a renowned cook, fisherman, outdoorsman and family man. His mum calls him Matthew. His friends and old teammates call him ‘Haydos’. But to the rest of Australia, and to cricketing fans all over the world, he’s simply known as “Matty!”

Shane Murray

Business Development Manager

 

Across a career spanning more than 20 years, Shane has worked as a copywriter and creative director developing brand strategy and advertising campaigns for an extensive range of local, national and international brands. His list of past clients cover the broad spectrum from telecommunications, insurance, banking, health funds, automotive, airlines and tourism, through to FMCG, media, utilities, transport, professional sporting teams, hotels, the university sector, the charity and NFP sector, and a wide variety of state government departments.

 

He has been the president of the Brisbane Advertising and Design Club (BADC), has lectured extensively for the Australian Writers and Art Directors (AWARD) School, and is the recipient of more than 70 industry awards for creativity. The work that has given him the most satisfaction, however, has always been that related to Corporate Social Responsibility, community engagement, social change management and charitable endeavours – hence his role working with Storyline.
