Claire announced her decision to vacate the position after 14 highly successful years in the role and Gary will be commencing in February 2021.

Gary has been a senior executive of the NSW Government with a superior track record of providing strategic and operational leadership while creating environments that build and empower individuals to achieve organisational goals.

JewishCare’s President Jason Sandler said “We are grateful to Claire for her many years of outstanding service and are glad to have found a leader of Gary’s calibre to replace her. We are confident that Gary is the right leader for our next phase of development. Gary is dedicated and culturally aligned and is very excited to take on this new opportunity.

Over the last 22 years, Gary has dedicated his public service career to protecting the most vulnerable in our community, especially vulnerable children and young people in the areas of trauma, sexual abuse, domestic violence, disability, carers, out-of-home care and Aboriginal disadvantage. He has worked in numerous roles within the NSW Police Force, the Ombudsman, Department of Family & Community Services (FACS), Department of Communities and Justice and has been at the helm of numerous major reforms in NSW Government.

Gary Groves said:  “I am extremely excited to be joining JewishCare.  I’m really keen to continue with Claire’s legacy and grow, innovate and deliver the best services to the Jewish Community that provides amazing outcomes to clients and a high level of staff satisfaction.   Listening, observing and working with frontline staff, the management team and members of the Board will be my top priority.”
