Jenny Hall, Executive Manager Residential Services at South Australian aged care, retirement village and community service operator Helping Hand, has been appointed CEO of UnitingSA.
Ms Hall will take over the CEO role from Libby Craft, who is retiring after more than a decade at the helm of the Not For Profit organisation, which supports nearly 15,000 people annually with a staff and volunteers of over 1,000 people.
“This appointment marks an exciting new chapter for UnitingSA and the Board is looking forward to working with Ms Hall to build on our strong history supporting communities for over 100 years,” UnitingSA Board Chair Gael Fraser said in a media statement.
“Ms Hall’s depth of experience across health, aged care and community services will be invaluable, as we continue to evolve in response to major changes in our sector.”
“After many years of stable leadership, we are incredibly fortunate to have found someone with the right experience and values to lead us into the future as we respond to the needs of communities, families and individuals.”
Ms Hall, who will take over the role at the end of June, has previously held senior executive roles at Medibank Home Support Services and Neami National Ltd.
