After five years at the helm of the Therapy Focus Board, Mr Pete Mildenhall has handed over the role of Chairperson to Ms Fiona Payne, who was formally appointed on 27 March, 2017.
In reflecting on his time as Board Chair, Pete said that whilst there were many highlights he was most proud of the way in which the organisation had managed growth and change.
“Seeing the organisation undergo significant growth, and cope with that growth while maintaining such positive staff culture, has been a wonderful thing to witness. Now I look forward to watching on from the outside as the organisation goes from good things to great things.”
Therapy Focus CEO Matt Burrows echoed this sentiment saying that Pete’s “reliable, diligent and steady-handed” approach to matters regarding the national reforms was much appreciated by all.
In thanking his fellow Directors for their support, Pete offered some advice saying, “We’re all here to serve the people in our community and so long as we bear that in mind in all we do, then I think everything slots into place with the assistance of the talented people we have on the Board.”
Stepping into her new role as Therapy Focus Board Chair, Fiona said that she was excited to be part of the team that will lead Therapy Focus into a new phase.
“The Board is challenged with the task of really adding value to the work of the management team and staff at Therapy Focus, and there’ll be a strong focus on delivering positive outcomes and making a real difference in the lives of consumers and their families.”
