At a special ZOOM On Line Changeover Meeting held on 7th July, Kevin Tattrie was inducted as President of the Rotary Club of Northbridge for the 2020-21 year.
Kevin is an expatriate Canadian who has called Australia home for almost a generation. 
Born and raised in Ottawa, he is the 3rd of 4 adopted children. He attended college in Ottawa then worked there during the 1980s and early 90s before travelling on business to Australia in the mid-1990s. 
In 1997 Kevin was posted to Sydney to assist with his Ottawa-based company’s expansion into Asia where he was beginning to travel frequently.  For the next 13 years he based himself in various NSW locations, initially in Northbridge, then on the Central Coast. In 2010
he settled permanently in Willoughby. The following year, Kevin co-founded an Australian system integration company called The Forms Agency which is located in North Sydney.
Kevin joined the Rotary Club of Northbridge in November 2015 and has been a board member for 4 years, 3 of those as Youth Director.
In 2018, he received Rotary’s highest honour, the Paul Harris Fellowship Award.
The Rotary Club of Northbridge, says Kevin, provides the perfect avenue to service projects on a local level (as with our youth programs), the national level (as seen with our bush fire and drought relief appeals), and internationally (as with our water projects in East Timor, and projects in Nepal).  It is amazing to be involved with an organisation with a truly global impact as we see with the Rotary International Project to End Polio.
Kevin is the proud father of a daughter who turns 21 this year.
