We’d like to introduce you to our new Chief Executive Officer, Nicholas (Nick) Packham, and extend our warm thanks and best wishes to our outgoing CEO Melinda Phillips.

Nick joined Vivability on 18 July this year and brings with him extensive knowledge and expertise gained from 29 years working in the State Government disability and human services sector in a range of roles.

Most recently Nick has spent 12 years within the State Department of Ageing, Disability and Home Care, managing specialist disability services including therapy, complex case management, psychology and complex behavioural services across the Central West of NSW.

Nick is particularly focused on working closely with our Vivability individuals, families and carers to ensure they are best prepared for the NDIS. His management expertise, energy and breadth of knowledge on the NDIS puts us all in an exceptionally positive position going forward.
