CEO Named For NDIS Launch Transition Agency
Friday, 6th July 2012 at 3:38 pm

The inaugural Chief Executive of the The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Launch Transition Agency has been named.

The Federal Government has appointed David Bowen as CEO of the body responsible for coordinating the implementation of the NDIS, which is set to begin its first stages in mid 2013, according the Federal Government.

Bowen is a lawyer with a background in administrative and insurance law and has also worked as a consultant to the insurance industry, health and disability sectors.

He is the Chair of the National Injury Insurance Scheme Advisory Committee and previously also General Manager of the NSW Motor Accidents Authority for 11 years. He was also the inaugural chief executive of the NSW Lifetime Care and Support scheme.

Bowen was a member of the independent panel that advised the productivity commission in its inquiry into a national disability care and support scheme.

The Gillard Government says it is delivering $1 billion over four years to start rolling out the first stage of the NDIS.

From mid-2014 the Government expects that the reach of the NDIS will be expanded to bring the total number of eligible people up to 20,000.
