About Steve: After successfully building two international software companies, Mr. Killelea decided to dedicate most of his time and fortune to sustainable development and peace. In 2007, Mr. Killelea founded the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), an international think tank dedicated to building a greater understanding of the interconnection between business, peace and economics with particular emphasis on the economic benefits of peace. IEP’s ground-breaking research includes the Global Peace Index, the world’s leading measure of peacefulness. Mr. Killelea’s founding of IEP was recognized as one of the 50 most impactful philanthropic gifts in Australia’s history.
He currently serves on a number of influential Company Boards, Advisory Boards and President Councils. In 2010 he was honoured as Member of the Order of Australia for his service to the global peace movement and the provision of humanitarian aid to the developing world. In 2013 Steve was nominated one of the “Top 100 Most Influential People in Armed Violence Reduction” by the UK group Action on Armed Violence.
