The recent increase in housing stock and expansion of service delivery both in South Australia and Tasmania, has led to Community Housing Ltd (CHL) appointing new State Managers in these two States.
Melissa Palframan and Wendy Scullen have been appointed to lead the teams in Tasmania and South Australia respectively.
In making the announcement, CHL’s Managing Director Steve Bevington said, “I am particularly delighted that, with the appointment of Melissa Palframan and Wendy Scullen, we are able to reinforce the number of women in our senior executive team. The different perspectives and professional expertise they will bring to the team can only help to boost the level of creativity and innovation that are key to accelerating our growth strategy.
