Janet Muir has been announced as the incoming Chief Executive Officer of RSL Lifecare, replacing Graham Millett.
Ms Muir was previously Managing Director Australia and New Zealand for the European hearing health care provider Audika – a role she held for more than 8 years. Other roles include strategic management positions with both St Vincents Health Australia and St John of God Health Care in Perth.
In a statement, RSL LifeCare Interim Chair, Ms Sangeeta Venkatesan congratulated Ms Muir on her appointment and is looking 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. 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 added.
