Lynne Harwood announced as new CEO for Forrest Personnel

We are excited to announce Forrest Personnel’s new CEO, Lynne Harwood, will be starting with us at the end of November.


Lynne brings over 20 years of experience as a CEO in the community and disability sectors working with a range of organisations in Tasmania, NSW and ACT. She has significant experience in cultural, organisational and financial transformation, particularly during periods of substantial change. Lynne holds a Bachelor of Commerce and is a Certified Practising Accountant and applies strong strategic leadership, lateral thinking and exceptional abilities at marshalling resources to gain the best outcomes for the people we serve.  In her previous roles, Lynne has been instrumental in leading service delivery outcomes, organisational growth, client advocacy and high levels of staff engagement.


We are extremely fortunate to have appointed a leader with Lynne’s level of leadership experience. Lynne’s clear vision and unrivalled passion for the disability and care industry will help progress Forrest Personnel’s vision, ensuring no ability is ever wasted. Currently based in Tasmania, Lynne is delighted to be returning to Western Australia and joining Forrest Personnel at such an important time for the organisation as we look to the future.


It also goes without saying that Dr George Giuliani has our sincere thanks for his steadfast leadership as interim CEO for the past two months.
