Dentons Australia chair and Australasia CEO set for another term

Dentons Australia chair and Australasia region CEO Doug Stipanicev is set for another term in the role.

“Since becoming the Australia chair, Doug has led the firm from strength to strength, implementing a new strategic vision, and leading the combinations with Dentons Fisher Jeffries in Adelaide and Dentons Kensington Swan in New Zealand to continue to grow and strengthen the firm’s presence in Australasia,” COO Maureen Migliazzo said.

She said that Stipanicev had manoeuvred the firm through the challenges caused by COVID-19, “championing a culture of care and transparency with employees, focussing on our clients and ensuring the firm remains in a financially strong position.”

Prior to his initial appointment as Australia chair and Australasia region CEO, Stipanicev had held several leadership positions within Dentons; he led the firm’s Perth office, and has been on the board for the past seven years.

“The partners look forward to seeing Dentons’ continued regional growth under Doug’s leadership,” Migliazzo said.

Stipanicev will continue in his role for another two years beginning January 2021.
