Interim Chief Executive Appointment

Oct 31, 2022 | News

The Cara Board of Directors would like to recognise and thank Liz Cohen for her leadership over seven years at Cara.

Liz has made a significant contribution towards shaping Cara in to the organisation that it is today. Liz will be returning to New South Wales to be closer to her family and the Board wishes Liz and her husband Dave all the very best for the future.

The Board has appointed Sonya Furey as Chief Executive for an interim period while a recruitment process takes place to secure a new Chief Executive to lead Cara. Sonya is an experienced and well-respected executive with a diverse skillset, having held senior level roles in finance and legal risk management, governance, stakeholder engagement and strategy.

Sonya has been given the mandate by the Board to drive and implement the recently approved new Strategic Plan 2022-24 which will be critical to the future success of Cara.

Cara’s new Strategic Plan shapes our direction and guides future growth. It outlines Cara’s pillars for success, the framework for all of the work that we are doing to continue to transform Cara and deliver high-quality services to people with disability, in a commercially-competitive environment.
