After 15 years of leading Achieve Australia, Anne Bryce has left her role as Chief Executive Officer. The Board would like to recognise Anne for her passion and commitment as the CEO in growing the organisation while never losing sight of our core passion of social inclusion for people with disability.
Anne has built the organisation from a small community organisation supporting around 100 people in 2003 to one of Australia’s leading disability organisations supporting around 900 people, many with high-needs. She is also one of Australia’s leaders in the disability sector and is active at a national and international level relating to the provision of quality service for people with disability, having diligently served the organisation and the disability sector for over two decades. We take this opportunity to wish Anne all the best for the future and to thank her for her time and service with the organisation.
A message from Anne Bryce
Just a short message to accompany the Chairman’s advice that I am leaving the organisation after 21 years and 15 years as the CEO. It is with much sadness that my time with Achieve is over after a long and proud journey watching the organisation grow from a small community organisation to a large, well recognised organisation, never forgetting the grassroots of our work and our community at large. Thank you for being part of our community. I remain passionate about quality services for people with disability and wish to assure everyone that I will continue my work and leadership in this area in other ways. I wish to take this opportunity to thank the clients, families, volunteers and staff of Achieve and wish them all the very best for the future. I’d also like to thank the board for the many opportunities I have had serving the organisation.
The Board has appointed Brent Pitts, current Chief Financial Officer, to lead the organisation as Acting Chief Executive Officer throughout a transition period whilst the Board of Directors identify and recruit a new CEO. Brent has a long history in both the not for profit, and corporate sectors and is focused on building a strong business base as we continue to make individualised outcomes, safety and wellbeing of the people we support our number one priority.
Achieve Australia, throughout its 65 years, has been a leader in the disability sector with the purpose of building extraordinary lives for people with disability through wellbeing, having a home, choosing a career and enjoying a full life.
Chairman, Achieve Australia
