The significant design and medical contributions of three Club Melbourne Ambassadors were officially recognised in the Queen’s Birthday 2013 Honours List announced this week.

Ambassadors to secure the honours included Dr Ken Cato, Professor Garry Jennings, and Professor Euan Wallace.

Dr Ken Cato received the Officer (AO) in the General Division for his distinguished service to the graphic design profession as a practitioner, and through education and development roles both nationally and internationally.

Professor Garry Jennings, AM received the Officer (AO) in the General Division for distinguished service to medical research, particularly the prevention and control of cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes, to professional associations, and to education.

Professor Euan Wallace received the Member (AM) in the General Division for his significant service to medicine, particularly in the areas of obstetrics and gynaecology.

Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre’s (MCEC) chief executive, Peter King, said the Ambassadors’ inclusion in the Queen’s Birthday 2013 Honours List is a fitting acknowledgement to their remarkable careers.

“I congratulate all three Ambassadors on this wonderful achievement. We’re delighted that they, as leaders in their respective fields, have been recognised for their value to the Australian community.”
