The journey so far
“For me, this is the culmination of all my life’s experiences; the chance to lead an iconic body at the coalface of caring for the most vulnerable members of our community.”
From peacekeeping in the Gaza Strip to high-level roles in mental health and defence, our CEO Chris Burns shared his life's journey so far with SA LIFE magazine – and reflected on how it's all brought him here to Hutt St Centre.
“I have the great honour of leading an amazingly capable and dedicated team of professionals and volunteers who deliver an extraordinary service that so closely aligns with my life philosophy,” Chris said.
“I have learnt so many times and firmly believe that we need to treat people as we would want to be treated if we were in their boots.”
