After studying philosophy and accounting at Monash and playwriting in California, Ash Rosshandler become a copy writer and was responsible for selling too much crap, to too many people, who didn't really need it. Ash has since tried to reverse his bad karma by starting the Karma Currency Foundation and launched Australia's first Charity Gift Voucher in 2007.
In 2012 the foundation merged with GoodCompany and launched Australia and NZ’s first unified Workplace Giving, Volunteering, Fundraising and Rewards Platform.GoodCompany has since helped facilitate over $14m in donations and close to 200,000 hours in volunteering to help support more than 1500 charities in Aust/NZ. Clients include MYOB, OPTUS, Origin, Flight Centre, Spotlight, IAG, AGL, NBN, ANZ, REECE, CSL, NAB and more. In 2018 Ash launched Australia’s Top 40 Best Workplaces to Give Back Award to acknowledge organisations that best empower their people to have a positive social impact.
