Interview with Anastasia Fai Kogan

Anastasia Fai Kogan has been appointed the youngest director in the history of the Melbourne Opera Board. 

She will serve as a Non-Executive Director and is expected to bring energy and fresh, connective thinking to the role.

The 37-year-old is considered as much an entrepreneurial force as her prominent husband, founder and CEO of Ruslan Kogan.

As founder and creative director of digital agency Style & Image she has created strategies and executed content for some of the best known Australian and International luxury and premium lifestyle brands including: Diageo, Mumm, Audi, Shangri-La, W hotels and Sony Music.

The agency focuses on strategic development video production and results-driven output.

Her experience is expected to be an asset to the not-for-profit company to help it reach new ears.

Ms Kogan is an experienced digital creative and holds an MBA from Melbourne Business School and a Bachelor of Music from the Australian Institute of Music.

She is also a graduate of the Australia Institute of Company Directors and has lectured in business strategy at the AIM since 2015.

We interviewed Anastasia here after she delivered a commanding speech at the Telstra Business Woman of the years awards, to which she was a finalist.

The Coronavirus pandemic has had a disastrous impact on the Arts in Victoria, the digital age offers many platforms for artists and others associated with the industry.

An appointment of somebody with her digital savvy makes sense in 2020. We hope to see the addition of more women on the board.

We look forward to seeing how this takes shape.

Opera singer Margaret Haggart was the first woman on Melbourne Opera’s board. She spent many years in leads with companies across the globe.
