New chief appointed at Corumbene

FORMER parliamentarian Alison Standen (pictured) has been named as the new chief executive of Corumbene Care following the impending departure of Damien Jacobs after 12 years in the role.

Board of management president Peter Rouleston said Mr Jacobs was leaving next month with the best wishes of the board and its sincere thanks for the contribution he has made to the organisation’s growth and continuing success.

“The Board of Management is very pleased to announce the appointment of an outstanding candidate in Ms Alison Standen as the incoming chief executive officer for Corumbene,” Mr Rouleston said. “Alison will be commencing her duties with Corumbene on September 27 … which will provide the opportunity for the incumbent to work alongside Damien over the next few weeks.”

Ms Standen served as a Labor member for Franklin in the Tasmanian parliament from 2018-21, with roles including opposition spokesperson for disability services and ageing. She grew up in Tasmania as the daughter of a doctor and nurse, and had a long career as an allied health professional in the state’s North-West.

  1. The appointment of Alison Standen is an outstanding choice as the new CEO of Corumbene. Alison is a very caring and astute operator. She understands how aged care residents need to be looked after, being a former nurse and politician with responsibilities as opposition spokesman for ageing and disability. A very big thank you to Damien Jacobs for your hard work and vision over 12 years.
