It is with great pleasure that I announce Tina Hogarth-Clarke has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of COTA Victoria.
Tina has had a distinguished career and has demonstrated commitment and skills in community engagement and advocacy, plus a strong sense of social justice and ethics. Tina has over 24 years’ experience in the health, aged care, retirement living and disability industries.
We were fortunate to be able to work with Tina as a current COTA Victoria Board member, and know her genuine commitment for the betterment of older Victorians, particularly those at the margins. As a current COTA Victoria Board member Tina has an excellent understanding of the values and ethos of our important work. Tina will step down from the Board after our June meeting and will take up the CEO position on 22nd July. One of her first tasks will be to represent COTA Victoria at the National Elder Abuse Conference in Brisbane in July. For those attending the conference please make yourself known to Tina.
Tina holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Western Australia, a Post Graduate Certificate in Commercial Law from the Curtin University Australia and a Post Graduate Diploma in Applied Corporate Governance from Chartered Secretaries Australia. Tina is an Associate of the Association of Age Service Professionals, the Governance Institute of Australia, and the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators. Tina is a member and graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and the Australian Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association.
On behalf of all involved at COTA Victoria we welcome Tina.
The regional town of Koroit (in the South West of Victoria) beckons for our outgoing CEO, Ronda Held, as she and her husband plan retirement. Ronda has been a guiding light in COTA Victoria’s new strategy and worked tirelessly for older Victorians. It has been a delight to work with Ronda and we will build on her outstanding contribution. Ronda’s last day with COTA Victoria, in the CEO role, will be 2nd August. Ronda has offered to continue assisting COTA after her full time role in the capacity as a volunteer – we will be taking up that offer! We will be thanking Ronda more formally closer to her retirement date.
