Gosford-based housing provider, Pacific Link Housing, has announced the appointment of long-standing senior executive Daphne Wayland as interim CEO.
“Daphne has played a pivotal role in directing, managing and implementing Pacific Link’s policies and initiatives for more than five years in her pivotal roles as Company Secretary, Risk & Compliance Manager and go-to executive,” said Pacific Link Chairman, David Bacon
“She has made a huge contribution to the group as the architect and administrator of Pacific Link’s best practice governance and risk frameworks, both widely recognised as sector-leading.
“In addition, she has had a critical role in developing the strategic plan for the business; has played a major part in managing the delivery of Pacific Link services to tenants; and has also been the lead developer responsible for articulating Pacific Link’s role and capabilities in all tender responses.
“Her abilities, commitment and comprehensive understanding of Pacific Link and the sector make her uniquely qualified to fill the role of CEO at a time of unprecedented change and opportunity,” he said.
Qualified as a Chartered Accountant with Deloitte in London and subsequently in Sydney, Daphne began her career in Australia with an ASX-listed financial services company.
She later co-founded a corporate superannuation consulting business that grew through multiple acquisitions over six years from a core team of 5 to a national business with 550 staff.
After selling out of the business, Daphne looked for a local role on the Central Coast where she worked for several years as practice manager at a leading firm of chartered accountants before joining Pacific Link as Compliance Manager, in 2011. Daphne has lived on the Central Coast for more than 20 years.
