Head of icare’s social venture named
An insurance and care service provider has appointed a new lead for its partnership efforts with like-minded businesses and community organisations.

icare has chosen Amanda Keogh to become the inaugural general manager of icare foundation, a social venture aimed at identifying and investing in programs, research, and partnerships for reaching out and supporting injured workers, carers, and their families.

The venture, launched last year by NSW treasurer Dominic Perrottet, will invest $100 million over five years.

As icare foundation GM, Keogh’s tasks are to increase icare’s approach to creating, shaping and enhancing the foundation’s societal impact for icare’s customers.

Tim Plant, icare group executive innovation, said he looks forward to working with Keogh.

Keogh also commented on her appointment: “I am excited by the opportunity to develop and lead the icare foundation, which will be an integral part of icare’s mission to enhance the outcomes of people with injuries and their communities from both regional and metropolitan NSW.”
