NDIS approved service provider Integra is pleased to announce the appointment of Julie Keene as Chief Executive Officer as it continues to focus on improving the lives of more people with disability.
Ms Keene has more than 25 years’ experience in senior finance and management roles in the health, higher education and financial services sectors and will position Integra’s plan management and support coordination services for national growth.

Ms Keene replaces inaugural CEO Gabrielle Steckman who will take on a Board advisory role.
A chartered accountant, Ms Keene was Chief Financial Officer for HBF Health Limited, WA’s largest private health insurer, for four years prior to joining Integra.
She has held several board positions across the community, health, tourism and education sectors and is currently Chair of United Way West Australia and a board member of United Way Australia, both community organisations are active in education, health and financial literacy.
Chairman Tony Brown said Ms Keene would extend the work of Ms Steckman in ensuring Integra continued to offer independent, innovative and market leading solutions in plan management and support coordination enabling NDIS participants to more effectively exercise choice and control in achieving individual goals and objectives.
“We are delighted to welcome to Integra a leader of Julie’s calibre who has a broad understanding of the needs of people with disability,” Mr Brown said.
