Alan Kirkland has been stirring up trouble since he was a teenager. His career before joining CHOICE in 2012 involved campaigning on issues as diverse as education funding, homelessness and public transport. He has also worked on the other side of the fence, in government. As CEO of Legal Aid NSW during the global financial crisis, Alan saw the human impact of poor lending practices, which sparked his passion for consumer rights.
These days, Alan sees his job as making sure that CHOICE stays relevant to the needs of Australia's consumers, all while having a little fun along the way.
