New board chair joins InLife

Former senior executive Dwayne Crombie joins the InLife board replacing Wendy Brooks as chair. His leadership experience spans the health and community sectors in Australia and New Zealand.

InLife is excited to welcome new chair Dwyane Crombie to our board.

Dwayne is taking over the role from Wendy Brooks, who has led the board for the past eight years.

We thank Wendy for her inspiring leadership and hard work. She is continuing to share her valuable expertise as an InLife board member.

“Wendy has been an enormous support to me personally, as well as a passionate advocate for our community, our purpose and for the rights of people with disability,” InLife CEO and founder David Clarke said.

“We welcome Dwayne to the InLife board and we’re delighted that he’s chosen to share his considerable expertise with us.”

Dwayne is a former senior executive with a background in both the public and private sectors in New Zealand and Australia.

His experience has spanned public hospital provision, community-based, mental health and disability services. It has also included funding of public health and disability services, aged care, private health insurance and private healthcare.

Dwayne most recently led Bupa Australia’s health services and insurance businesses.

“InLife has experienced incredible success over the past eight years and I’m excited to be part of the journey as it continues its growth trajectory,” Dwayne said.

“Thank you for your hard work Wendy and I look forward to working with you on the board.”

Outgoing chair Wendy said seeing InLife begin as a start-up and grow into a successful not-for-profit had been awe-inspiring.

‘The aim was to reshape disability support for the better and I’m proud to say that InLife has delivered and is continuing to transform the sector,” Wendy said.

“I’m pleased to continue as an InLife board member as we continue to grow and develop our client-first support model.”
