Icon Group Co-Founder and Digital Advisor to the Icon Group Board, Cathie Reid has been honoured with a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for her significant service to healthcare delivery and philanthropy. In recognition of this honour, we look back at her career highlights and extensive contribution to philanthropy.
For over 33 years, Cathie has been forging the way forward in healthcare. Starting her career in community pharmacy in country Victoria, Cathie had a limitless vision to provide quality healthcare in Australia and beyond. It is this vision that saw her establish ActiveCare Pharmacies alongside Stuart Giles, her business partner and husband. It is also this vision that saw her become part of the wider APHS Pharmacy Group (now Epic Pharmacy), where she and Stuart leveraged the company’s strong reputation and knowledge in hospital pharmacy to develop the cancer care continuum Icon Group is known for today.
