Luke is one of Australia’s most awarded ‘serial social entrepreneurs’. Over the last 15 years, he has founded several large-scale social enterprises that create meaningful work for individuals who would otherwise be excluded from the labour market. In 2017, he created Vanguard Laundry Services, an AU$8 million commercial laundry with in-built mental health career and training centre employing more than 140 people since opening. In June 2019 Luke launched White Box Enterprises. With only 15 employment focused social enterprises in Australia paying an award wage and employing more than 50 people, White Box pledges to create 5000 jobs by 2030 using social enterprise. Luke has been recognised as a Westpac Social Change Fellow, the 2015 recipient of the SVA David Clarke Scholarship, a Queensland Citizen of the Year finalist, and winner of the 2015 & 2016 Australian Social Enterprise Awards.
