Acting CEO, National Disability Insurance Agency

Vicki Rundle was appointed the Acting Chief Executive Officer in the National Disability Insurance Agency on 30 April 2019, pending the appointment of a permanent CEO. Vicki’s usual role in the NDIA is Deputy CEO, Government, Communications and Stakeholder Engagement.

Vicki has worked in Commonwealth and State Governments across a range of health and human services areas in her career, primarily in policy, strategy, service delivery reform and corporate roles, and has always gravitated to roles that influence social policy and systemic reform for groups of Australians who have not had the same opportunities as others.

Vicki was awarded a Public Service Medal in the 2013 Australia Day Honours List for her work on the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) national early childhood quality reforms, a reform that has significantly improved the experiences and outcomes for children and their families.
