Our managing director becomes chief executive officer

Our managing director becomes chief executive officer

The replacement of the Victoria Legal Aid (VLA) managing director position with that of a chief executive officer role has come into effect as of 1 November 2018. This change was included in the Justice Legislation Amendment (Access to Justice) Act 2018, which was passed earlier this year.

Louise Glanville, who was recently appointed to the managing director role, says she is pleased that this change has come into operation so soon.

'The enactment of this transformation means that I can get on with the business of providing day-to-day leadership of VLA as its inaugural chief executive officer.'

'As chief executive officer there is greater clarity of roles and reporting lines, and strengthened operational accountability for the whole organisation.'

The changes bring our leadership structure into line with best practice by replacing the managing director position with a chief executive officer position and removing that position from the Board.

The remainder of the changes in the Justice Legislation Amendment (Access to Justice) Act 2018 are expected to come into effect in 2019.
