Rob De Luca will commence in his new role as CEO from late August and will play a key role in the full roll-out of the NDIS.
The announcement comes as work gets underway on the NDIA’s new headquarters in central Geelong. Mr De Luca was until recently the Managing Director of Bankwest, which won the AIM WA WestBusiness Pinnacle Award for Corporate Social Responsibility Excellence in 2016, as well as WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality.
Social Services Minister Christian Porter said Mr De Luca has the experience to ensure the NDIS realises its full potential.
“Mr De Luca deeply understands the importance of improving social and economic outcomes for participants in a way that delivers a quality participant experience,” the minister said.
Mr Porter also paid tribute to retiring NDIS CEO David Bowen.
“David’s dedication, professionalism and leadership of the NDIA have been critically important in helping to deliver on the promise of the NDIS to change the lives of people with disability, their families and carers.”
