Liberal MP Josh Frydenberg, and his wife Amie, welcomed their first child last spring, and named their daughter Gemma.
Josh studied law at Monash and entered a commercial law firm before studying international relations at Oxford and public adminstration at Harvard. He worked as an adviser to former Foreign Affairs Minister Alexander Downer and former Prime Minister John Howard, and became Director of Global Banking with Deutsche Bank. He won the safe Liberal seat of Kooyong in Melbourne’s inner east, a traditional lauching pad for conservative leaders, at the 2010 federal election, and was re-elected in 2013 with the largest Liberal swing in his seat since 1975. He was the first Jewish Liberal elected to the House of Represenatives. Appointed Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister, late last year he was sworn in as Assistant Treasurer. A keen tennis-player, Josh is on the board of Kids Tennis Foundation, which provides coaching to disadvantaged children.
Amie (nee Saunderson) is a Melbourne lawyer specialising in workplace issues. She and Josh were married in 2010.
