ReturnToWorkSA's next CEO announced

(2 July 2019) The Board of ReturnToWorkSA have appointed Michael Francis as the next CEO when Rob Cordiner retires later this year.

Michael is currently the Deputy CEO Participants and Planning Experience with the National Disability Insurance Agency. Michael has extensive experience in work injury insurance having previously spent five years with ReturnToWorkSA in the roles of General Manager Insurance and General Manager Scheme Improvement & Regulation, as well as six years with the Queensland workers compensation scheme as the Executive Manager. As ReturnToWorkSA continues to evolve and refine the service it delivers to employers and workers who are injured at work, Michael’s extensive experience and leadership will be key to the ongoing success of the Scheme. Michael will join ReturnToWorkSA on Monday 23 September 2019.

At this time I would like to recognise the exceptional contribution Rob Cordiner has made during his time as CEO. His leadership and deep knowledge of the industry has underpinned the organisation’s successful transformation which has resulted in financial, cultural and service improvement during his tenure.

Chairman, ReturnToWorkSA
