Appointment of Elizabeth Cosson AM CSC to RSL LifeCare Board

I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Elizabeth (Liz) Cosson AM CSC as a Director of the RSL LifeCare Board as of Monday 18 September.

Liz comes to us with a distinguished 30-year career in the Australian Army, followed by various prestigious roles within public administration. This quality of experience and knowledge will be greatly beneficial to the Board as we move into the future.

From a military perspective, Liz has been awarded the Member in the Military Division of the Order of Australia – AM, for leading profound change and service to the Australian Army. In addition to this honour, Liz was awarded the Conspicuous Service Cross – CSC for achievements as the Chief of Staff (Peace Monitoring Group – Bougainville) and logistics planning (East Timor). At the pinnacle of her military career, Liz was promoted to the rank of Major General and Head Defence Support Operations.

Her transition to public administration in 2010 continued her expertise in leadership, strategic thinking and organisational reform. Liz has had various roles including the Department of Immigration & Citizenship (Deputy Secretary), Commonwealth Department of Health (Deputy Secretary/CEO), Department of Veterans’ Affairs (Deputy Secretary/CEO), and was most recently Commonwealth Department of Veterans’ Affairs (Secretary (CEO)).

Upon her appointment, Liz said, “I am honoured to be appointed to the Board of RSL LifeCare and am thankful for this opportunity to contribute to the important work the organisation does for the veteran community and for seniors in general. It is a great privilege to join the Board at this important time of RSL LifeCare’s evolution.’

Liz’s breadth of experience within the military and knowledge of the Veteran Affairs space will be invaluable as we continue to increase our footprint with Veterans and Family Hubs across NSW. Her outstanding experience in organisational reform, governance and policy development, as illustrated in her public administration roles, will be a great asset to us.

I am truly delighted that she has chosen to join us at such an important stage of RSL LifeCare’s evolution with the launch of our new business strategy, and reaffirmation of our purpose to enrich veterans’ and seniors’ lives.

Please join me in welcoming Liz to the RSL LifeCare family, creating proud communities, living their best lives.

Warm regards,

Ewen Crouch AM

Chairman, RSL LifeCare
