ATTADALE resident Steve Edgar has been appointed chief executive of disability service provider Intelife Group.
Mr Edgar scored the role after holding off close to 100 applicants.
“The fact that the sector is going through change will present opportunities for the business and also some challenges,” he said.
“I’m looking forward to it as they are the things that make life fun.”
Mr Edgar said one of his key objectives was to grow the organisation’s service delivery.
“This sector is very important for society in general so I am looking forward to being able to contribute by providing more services to a greater range of people and to have a bigger impact in people’s live,” he said.
“There will be some diversification but essentially it’s about doing more of what Intelife already does very well, for more people.”
With more than 10 years executive management experience across a range of industries including oil and gas, engineering, and training and recruitment for private and publicly listed companies, board chair Nicolle Jenkins said Mr Edgar was a welcome addition.
“Like any business we need to stay ahead of the market changes, even with the uncertainty surrounding what NDIS will look like in WA,” she said.
“Steve’s style and experience provides Intelife with a good balance between the importance of delivering mission and margin.
“We all know without margin, there is no mission.
“We have appointed Steve with our clients’ needs in mind.
“Our clients want us to continue to be financially strong so we can continue to grow and provide services that deliver on the individual outcomes our clients want to achieve.
“That is a responsibility we hold close to the heart of all our decisions.”
