Victoria Buchan
Chair / Board Director

As Director of Communications and Public Relations at the Nine Network Australia, Victoria Buchan has extensive experience in the corporate communications sector. Previously Victoria owned and operated The Lantern Group and still retains a role as Director of the company that specialises in publicity and media relations in the entertainment industry.

Victoria began her career as a journalist on the Daily Mirror before joining Network 10 as a publicist during the booming production years in the late 1980s. She has worked with some of Australia’s most influential media groups, including Fairfax, Fox Studios Australia and the Australian Broadcasting Commission where she was Director Of Corporate Affairs.

Victoria’s journey with the adoption community began whilst working with Deborra-lee Furness and discovering the injustices families encountered via media stories on the issue. Inspired by those who have the courage to fight for change and the rights of children around the world to have a loving family, she and Deborah-lee have continued along this path together. Since beginning this work she has been touched by so many people, including her own family and friends who have some experience with adoption.
