New CEO for disability services provider
NFP leader joins NT organisation.
Allied health and disability specialist Annie Rily will join Carpentaria Disability Services as its new Chief Executive Officer in June.
Carpentaria President Shane Smith said he welcomed Rily to the team and was looking forward to her guidance and leadership of the not-for-profit organisation as it moved forward in its next stage of development and the construction of its new community hub.
“After embarking on a national recruitment program I am pleased to announce that we identified an exceptional talent from right here in the Territory, someone with a comprehensive understanding of our sector and the Territory, its unique character and challenges,” he said.
Rily will join Carpentaria following an extensive career in both the public and private sector and was most recently employed as the Senior Director of the Office of Disability for the Northern Territory Government.
“With the introduction of the Commonwealth funded National Disability Insurance Scheme it is vital that we have a clear vision of our goals and how we will cater to our clients’ needs. I am confident that Rily brings with her the required knowledge, experience and understanding of the Territory’s disability sector to ensure that we provide the best possible service while remaining competitive,” Smith said.
The new CEO has a strong interest in achieving positive outcomes for people with a disability while developing high quality, contemporary direct service models.
“I have been very closely involved in the national reforms associated with the NDIS and have a keen interest in delivering services that enable individuals to fully benefit from the opportunities that the scheme offers. My extensive experience in change management, leading Allied Health teams and specialised group home service delivery, will underpin my contribution to the ongoing development of Carpentaria’s high quality services,” Rily said.
