EPIC Assist announces new CEO

Wednesday, 4 December 2019

EPIC Assist is excited to announce Dean Graham as its new CEO, commencing in late January.

Dean has been with EPIC for 16 years. He joined the organisation as an Employment Consultant in 2003 and has experience in management, counselling, vocational rehabilitation and disability employment across QLD, NSW, ACT, Victoria and Tasmania.

In his most recent role of General Manager, Dean oversaw all Australian operations of EPIC. It is because of his incredible passion and work ethic that Dean has developed a strong network and reputation within the disability sector.

“I am very proud to be given the opportunity to lead this organisation which has been a part of my life for 16 years. Working for EPIC is a privilege, as each day we come to work we have the ability to make a considerable difference in the lives of the people we serve,” Dean said.

A message from EPIC’s current CEO, Bill Gamack:

“After almost 7 years, I have made the very difficult decision to move on from EPIC Assist. For CEO’s of organisations, particularly not-for-profits, there is always a use-by date. It is the right time for me to ‘hand over the baton’ to a successor with fresh eyes.

I have accepted a wonderful opportunity to continue my work in the not-for-profit space. Starting in late January I will be working in the role of CEO at Multicultural Australia – an organisation committed to creating a welcoming, inclusive and an economically stronger community. I look forward to continuing my personal mission of making a difference in the lives of those who are disadvantaged.

Finishing at EPIC will be bittersweet as I am sad to leave, but excited to see the new EPIC team grow and develop.

I wish Dean all the very best for the future and I am sure he will take EPIC to the next level.

Thank you, everyone, for your support during my time at EPIC – both the support of myself and the work we do at EPIC.”
