La Trobe alumni make the Power List

The Power ListProminent La Trobe University alumni Andrew Demetriou, Garry Weaven, Tim Flannery and Robert Manne have been identified as some of the most influential people in Australia, in the Power Index – the new political publication offering a fresh perspective on who really runs Australia.

Spearheaded by leading investigative journalist Paul Barry, The Power Index was created to identify the movers and shakers who hold the most power and influence in Australia.

The Power List recognises the top ten influencers across various domains and spheres, with some of La Trobe’s most notable alumni making the cut.

At the top of the biggest game in Australia, AFL boss, Andrew Demetriou unsurprisingly made it all the way to number one on the Sports list and was ranked number three on the Melbourne list.

La Trobe scored two alumni in the Thinkers category – environmental activist Tim Flannery and ‘Bundoora Bob’, Robert Manne for their influence on public debate and policy outcomes. 

Former assistant secretary of the ACTU and architect of Australia's super behemoth, Garry Weaven made it to number six on the Money Mover list.  His profile references in his radical leanings and activism while studying at La Trobe University, Bundoora and describes him as one of the most influential figures in Australia's $1.4 trillion superannuation investment pool.
