As a qualified accountant with over 40 years of knowledge acquired in the finance and banking industries, along with skills gained in his own management and financial consultancy, Henri provides invaluable leadership and support to both the Board and Executive of CURA In-Home Care.
Henri admits to deriving a great deal of personal satisfaction working with like-minded people in the support of the elderly in the West Australian community.
I was appointed to the CURA Board in May 2019 following a short period as an honorary Board member.
I bring to the Board extensive experience, knowledge and skills from my career in the Local and State government sectors of WA, mainly in the corporate and/or financial services areas. I am now retired after 11 years at the Shire of Mundaring and 30 years previously in State Government agencies such as Office of Energy, State Treasury, Premier's Department, Office of Public Sector Standards and Ombudsman's Office including some time in Ministerial Offices. I hold a Bachelor of Business Degree in Accounting and I am a member of other not for profit boards outside of this sector.
Whilst I have limited background in the aged care sector, I am committed to contributing to the community through the use of my strong experience and knowledge in finance, governance, human resources, information technology, information management and strategic planning at both State and Local Government levels which I believes will assist the Board and CURA to become an even stronger organisation.
