Rob Dalton joins the BlueCross board as its new chair.

Victorian aged care provider BlueCross has appointed Rob Dalton as its new chair.

Mr Dalton joins the BlueCross board with more than 35 years’ experience in commercial and transactional roles, as well as 25 years as an advisory and assurance partner in accounting and consulting firms.

Mr Dalton also brings with him valuable experience from the sports industry where he was chief executive officer of the Australian Sports Commission, Sport Australia and the Australian Institute of Sport.

“The pandemic resulted in the most challenging period globally for the sports sector, with the cancellation of the Tokyo Olympics and the Paralympics in 2020,” said Mr Dalton in a statement. “After years of service to sport I am keen to lend my hand to the health sector, specifically aged care.”

Mr Dalton has spent nearly 30 years on various volunteer committees and boards including for organisations such as The National SIDS Foundation, the Centre for Hearing Impaired Children, the Victorian College of Arts and Monash University.

Mr Dalton said now felt like the right time to devout his time and experience to BlueCross. “The team at BlueCross is leading the way in providing high quality aged care and that is something that I am keen to help foster and grow,” he said.

BlueCross CEO Ingrid Harvey said the organisation was thrilled to welcome Mr Dalton to its board. “His wealth of experience and diverse commercial knowledge will be a wonderful asset to the organisation,” she said.
