Bond Graduates Feature in 100 Most Powerful

Bond University graduates have featured in the upper ranks of the Gold Coast Bulletin’s list of the 100 most powerful Gold Coasters, with one-quarter of the top 16 hailing from the local, private and not-for-profit University. Having been established in 1989, Bond was the first University on the Gold Coast.

Liberal Party politician and Moncreiff MP Steve Ciobo, Sunland Managing Director Sahba Abedian, Gold Coast Tourism CEO Pavan Bhatia and Gold Coast City Councillor Jan Grew are among the Bond Alumni who featured in the list, which also included Vice-Chancellor of Bond University, Professor Robert Stable.

Professor Stable said the inclusion of so many Bond Alumni was testament to the spirit of leadership and entrepreneurship fostered at the university.

“Bond graduates are recognised internationally for their leadership, enterprise and ambition. They are also well connected, with the Alumni network providing valuable business contacts that transcend national boundaries. It’s these sorts of qualities that set our graduates apart from others, and certainly our Alumni that have featured in this list embody these qualities.”

“I am delighted that we at Bond continue to be associated with the leaders of the Gold Coast,” Professor Stable said.
