Dr John Moss awarded Australian Intelligence Medal

28 January 2022

Dr John Moss, Deputy CEO Intelligence, has been awarded the Australian Intelligence Medal for his significant contribution and leadership in the Australian Intelligence Community. 

The Australian Intelligence Medal was instituted in 2020 to recognise those members of the National Intelligence Community who have given distinguished service that directly contributed to national intelligence priorities, requirements or capabilities.

John first joined AUSTRAC in 2016 and has over 30 years’ experience in the intelligence community in New Zealand and Australia. Over this time he has worked across state and Commonwealth agencies with an emphasis on national security and law enforcement. 

Since joining AUSTRAC, John was instrumental in establishing the Fintel Alliance, AUSTRAC’s public-private partnership. As Chair of the board, John has led efforts to break down barriers between public and private sector partners in order to combat money laundering and terrorism funding. Since its establishment, AUSTRAC’s Fintel Alliance is considered as the gold standard of financial intelligence partnerships with the private sector. 

Congratulations John on this well-deserved award.
