RSL LifeCare has welcomed a new CEO this week, with the appointment of experienced and entrepreneurial business leader, Janet Muir. Ms Muir joins one of the leading aged care and veteran services organisations in NSW and the ACT having spent her career to date in senior roles across human services and healthcare sectors.
RSL LifeCare Interim Chair, Ms Sangeeta Venkatesan congratulated Ms Muir on her appointment and looks forward to working with her and RSL LifeCare’s Executive in continuing to elevate the level of support and services offered to seniors and veterans alike.
“This is an incredibly important time to continue to deliver a high level of care for our seniors and veterans and I’m delighted that Janet has accepted the opportunity to be part of the RSL LifeCare team,” Ms Sangeeta said.
“Our purpose as an organisation is to enrich the lives of Veterans and Seniors by creating connected, supportive and vibrant communities. I know that Janet shares this vision and I, along with the board, look forward to seeing her skills and strengths on display across our organisation.”
Ms Muir said she was honoured to be appointed CEO of RSL LifeCare and pledged to use her experience to build on the strong reputation of the organisation.
“I am thrilled to be joining RSL LifeCare at this time of transformation and growth, and to be part of a highly committed team that is focussed on delivering market leading care for all veterans and seniors within the community,” Ms Muir said.
“My father was in the Navy, I was a member of our Army Reserves, and I have a son who was a cadet at high school - so I have a strong affinity and connection to the service and sacrifice of past and present members of our defence force.
“My intention is to continue to deliver the positive and proactive support and services that RSL LifeCare has developed over decades, whilst leaning on my personal and professional experience to ensure that we listen to those in our care and deliver for them.”
Ms Muir’s most recent role was as Managing Director across Australia and New Zealand for global hearing health care provider, Audika. Prior to that, Ms Muir held senior roles across human services and healthcare sectors, with responsibilities across finance, strategy, operations and management.
