Erin Feros joined Allens as a law graduate and has worked for the firm throughout her career, achieving some fantastic results including opening international offices, becoming the Managing Partner for Queensland and joining the board. I really enjoyed speaking with Erin about her career and her views on leadership. She shares a great model for success called SWAN, and the importance of being “Nice”. She has a tremendous enthusiasm for her work that I found really refreshing and inspirational. She’s speaks about her involvement as the State Chapter Chair for Chief Executive Women, and as NED for the Queensland Theatre Company.
Please note: In the recorded introduction to this podcast, I incorrectly refer to Erin as the Queensland Events Chair of Chief Executive Women, when in fact her actual title is State Chapter Chair.
Erin was admitted as a solicitor in 1985 and became a partner of Allens in 1988. Erin is a member of the Allens Board, is the firm’s Mining Sector Head and is the managing partner of the Brisbane office of Allens. Mergers and acquisitions in the resources sector and privatisations are Erin’s primary areas of practice. Erin has broad experience dealing with ASIC, ASX, the Department of Mines and Energy and other Commonwealth and State Government departments.
Erin lists the opening of Allen’s office in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia in 2011, an initiative she lead, as one of the highlights of her career.
She is a former director of Queensland Rail and is currently on the board of the Queensland Theatre Company.
