Chief Executive Officer
Kirsten Pilatti was appointed CEO in March 2018.
She has an exceptional understanding of the cancer sector having spent over a decade at BCNA.
Highly regarded for her passion and focus on Australian women and men who have been affected by breast cancer, she is committed to giving everyone a voice and reducing the disparity of care across the country.
Her deep connection to our 150,000 members was cemented after spending 18 months travelling around Australia interviewing more than 3,500 women and men about their experience of breast cancer treatment and services to find out where the gaps in service delivery are occurring. The findings were outlined in the State of the Nation report, which was delivered to Federal Parliament in June 2018.
She is also proud of the work she has done to turn the spotlight on important issues such as access to breast reconstruction, the out of pocket costs experienced by breast cancer patients, driving changes to the Australian healthcare system including access to drugs through the PBS such as the CDK inhibitors for Australians with metastatic breast cancer.
Kirsten understands the power of sharing the experiences of those diagnosed and living with breast cancer. She will continue to be their advocate until all Australians receive the very best care, treatment, and support.
Born and raised in Western Australia, Kirsten lives in Melbourne with her partner and two sons.
