DISABILITY services provider Kira Incorporated has announced a change at the top.

Vik Jeyakumar will be the northern suburbs-based not-for-profit organisation’s new chief executive from February 6.

He has a background in social services senior management, overseeing regional WA operations in Life Without Barrier’s WA leadership team – and was instrumental in leading the organisation’s change management program.

He has also held senior executive roles at Youth Futures WA and was deputy chief executive at the WA peak body for youth services, YACWA.

Mr Jeyakumar said he looked forward to bringing his fresh vision to reinvigorate Kira Incorporated through a period of change.

“It feels like the completion of a full circle for me, as I will returning to work alongside many people I worked to support at the beginning of my career two decades ago,” he said.

“The serendipity of this situation reinforces my aims to help lead Kira Incorporated into the changing world of community services, and I look forward to working closely with the Kira Council to continue achieving excellent outcomes for the communities we work with.”

Founded in 1992 and funded through the Disability Services Commission, Kira Incorporated aims to support people to thrive by encouraging independence and enabling clients living with disabilities to live life to the fullest.

Kira is an Aboriginal word meaning flame, representing the ‘flame’ alight in each person.
