We are delighted to announce that Agata Jarbin has been appointed as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of heathAbility, commencing 22 July 2021.
As our organisation moves towards a new and exciting era under the one name, healthAbility, we are thrilled to welcome Agata to our team and wider community.
Agata brings to the role extensive experience in undertaking transformational change for a range of organisations, and leading teams to achieve outstanding results in the public, not-for-profit and private sectors.
For the past six years, Agata has led the not-for-profit organisation ermha365, who provide complex mental health and disability services. During her time as Director and Board Chair, Agata enabled the organisation to thrive and expand during a challenging period.
Prior to her role at ermha365, Agata held a number of executive positions, including two years as Chief Executive Officer at the Accident Compensation Conciliation Service, and five years at State Trustees in several senior and executive roles. In both of these organisations, Agata grew revenue and client satisfaction, improved profitability, and implemented new IT and business systems while delivering new services.
While she is a skilled leader and experienced CEO, it is Agata’s passion and commitment to achieving exceptional health outcomes for people, along with her extensive knowledge of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and support services, that will be truly valuable in helping us to achieve our vision for people in our community to enjoy better and longer lives.
Farewell Ronda Jacobs
As we welcome Agata, we would like to take this opportunity to farewell and thank our retiring CEO of over nine years, Ronda Jacobs.
For almost a decade, Ronda has been a passionate advocate for the health and wellbeing of people in our communities, and an experienced, compassionate and dedicated leader of our organisation.
We wish her all the best in her retirement as she turns her focus towards her community a little closer to home – her family.
