Ser­vice de­liv­ery pri­or­ity

Melville Times - - OPINION -

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 of 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.

“Our clients want us to con­tinue to be fi­nan­cially strong so we can con­tinue to grow and pro­vide ser­vices.”
