New South Wales Treasurer Dominic Perrottet has thanked icare’s outgoing Managing Director & CEO Vivek Bhatia for his years of dedicated work in service of injured workers and road users in New South Wales, following today’s announcement that Mr. Bhatia will depart icare this month.

Mr. Bhatia left the private sector in 2014 where he had served in executive leadership roles at McKinsey & Company and Wesfarmers Insurance to lead the transformation of New South Wales’s insurance and care schemes as icare’s inaugural CEO and MD.

“Vivek has played a vital leadership role in bringing the New South Wales Government’s insurance and care schemes into the 21st century.” Treasurer Perrottet said.

“As leader, Vivek has instilled in icare an unrelenting determination to put injured workers and their needs at the centre of the organisation’s work, so that they receive real care and support and are not just treated like numbers in a system.”

“At the same time, Vivek’s financial stewardship at icare has ensured the New South Wales insurance and care schemes are in their strongest financial position in decades, which is absolutely vital if workers are to receive the care and support they need.”

“Icare’s pioneering ethos of ‘commercial mind, social heart’ is a template for excellence in public service, and a proud legacy for Vivek and the icare team.” Treasurer Perrottet said.

“On behalf of the Government and the people of New South Wales, I want to thank Vivek for his years of exceptional service, and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”

Mr. Bhatia will work with icare’s Board and executive team in the coming weeks to assist with the transition of his responsibilities to interim Managing Director & CEO John Nagle, who currently serves as icare’s Group Executive, Workers Insurance.
