In early August, it was announced that current Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association CEO, John Swete Kelly, would be stepping down in early 2020 after three years of service. It is with great sadness that we farewell John, however, it is with great excitement that we introduce you to the Association’s new CEO, Amanda Mather, who will commence with the Association on 11 November 2019.
Amanda Mather is currently the General Manager of Queensland’s leading not-for-profit hearing service, Hear and Say. She has broad government, health, community and disability services sector experience with extensive knowledge in service delivery and funding models and proven ability in successfully leading and managing the delivery of large and complex programs.
Her capability has supported the effective development and operation of new programs for Hear and Say, including Hear to Learn (school hearing screening), Ready Set Shine (school readiness screening), expansion of the private services program and delivery of services internationally.
Amanda also sits on the CSIA National Reform Council, an innovative panel that exists to drive change and transformation in community services across Australia, and she supports growing the human bionics industry in Queensland as a founding Director of Bionics Queensland.
Thanks for joining us in welcoming Amanda to Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association.
