The Independent Living Centre WA (ILC) has appointed Steve Glew as the organisation’s new Chief Executive Officer.
For the past 10 years, Steve was an Executive Director at the Department for Child Protection and Family Support, where he was instrumental in growing and developing community services to meet changing priorities across social policy areas.
Prior to this role, Steve was the Manager Strategic Planning and Policy for the Inclusive Education Directorate at the Department of Education and Training, where he gained considerable experience managing teams working within the disability sector.
ILC Board Chairperson Melissa Bramley said Steve brings a wealth of experience to the role having worked in senior executive positions for more than 15 years.
“Steve is well placed to lead ILC as the sector undergoes changes to funding models,” said Mrs Bramley.
“He has a strong track record in organisational achievement, reform initiatives, change management, policy development, innovation, corporate communications, governance, strategy and customer service,” she said.
Steve’s significant experience and strong leadership skills will greatly assist the organisation with building on the great work undertaken by the former CEO Gerri Clay.
“Gerri served as the CEO at the ILC for 13 years, during which time she made a significant contribution to the organisation and led it through a substantial growth period”
“We look forward to seeing the organisation continue to flourish under the new leadership of Steve,” she said.
The ILC’s vision is for people to reach their goals to live independent and full lives through easy access to community allied health services, the right assistive technology and home modification solutions.
