We are pleased to welcome Jack Sach to the Acting CEO position at COTA Victoria. Jack has extensive experience and is well known in the aged care sector and brings a wealth of experience to the organisation. For 21 years he was a consultant to Commonwealth, State and Local Governments and also to hospitals, service providers, not-for-profit community organisations in the aged care and disability sectors. Over the past 10 years he has been the General Manager for Strategic Initiatives at Alzheimer’s Australia Vic encompassing organisational development, community liaison and participation, diversity, primary care engagement, research and related areas. He retired in November, but we are pleased that he has been available to COTA during this transition period as the COTA Board arranges for the appointment of a permanent CEO.
Jack said, “I am delighted to have the opportunity to be a part of COTA. It has been the voice of and for older people for many years and it is a privilege to work with the team of dedicated staff and volunteers. During my time as CEO I will be working with the Board and team to develop COTA’s services, and to provide a perspective on future opportunities.”
