Aged Care Technology and Digital Inclusion start up, YourLink Pty Ltd, is pleased to announce an expanded management and advisory team.
Jeff Gilling joins YourLink as the National Partnerships Manager, responsible for driving and building new strategic relationships across the aged care, technology and community sector.
Jeff has researched the demographic and social trends shaping our changing world for more than 25 years. He has worked with some of Australia's most recognisable organisations in the corporate, Not for Profit and Government sectors, to help them better understand the implications of Australia's changing demographics. Jeff’s previous experience includes working with Australian technology startup Better Caring.
He is passionate about changing societal attitudes to ageing and technology solutions that deliver better outcomes for ageing Australians.
As Jeff says, ”YourLink has a great opportunity to be a leader in supporting technology adoption across Aged Care homes and independent living environments. I’m looking forward working with the Co-founders, Rick and Richard, to bring their vision to life of making a difference for our loved ones.”
Christopher Darge will join the team as General Manager. Christopher brings to YourLink several decades of experience in Executive Business Management both in Australia and internationally. He has led and directed award winning corporate teams and regularly mentors executive business leaders.
Christopher was introduced to YourLink in mid 2017 and was compelled by the vision, dedication and early success of Rick and Richard. He has since invested in the growth of the company and as General Manager now oversees the strategic direction and operational leadership of the expanding team.
Finally, Lynette Nixon, PwC Director, is a strategic adviser to the YourLink management team. Lynette’s mentoring and coaching of the co-founders has been a pillar for the successful evolution of the business. Her role will be to continue to provide support and advice in our strategy and be a sounding board as we continue into new markets and diversify our products.
YourLink Co-Founder Rick Hollingworth reflected on the appointments, “Our skills and experience are well complemented by these additions to our team. Both Richard and I couldn’t be happier or more excited by this next phase of YourLink.“
