About Rhys Kennedy
Rhys was appointed CEO of CPL in November 2016. He has over 10 years’ experience working in the disability sector, as both an occupational therapist and senior business strategist.
Rhys started with CPL as an Occupational Therapist in Rockhampton. During his tenure at CPL he has worn many hats but his focus is on ability – what people can do and how we can support them to achieve their goals – has never wavered.
Rhys has extensive experience in frontline service delivery and is able to provide a ‘real-world’ perspective to the challenges and opportunities present in an impending NDIS environment. The NDIS is a big change for everyone, but it’s also exciting because for the first time service providers are able to support more people to achieve their goals.
Rhys is looking forward to expanding CPL through sustainable investment while facilitating positive outcomes for people with disabilities and their families.
