Ms Wood has been in the role of Interim CEO of PAC since march this year, following Mr Sadler's resignation - he has since taken a role as CEO at Aged and Community Services Australia (ACSA).

Working with PAC since 2016, Ms Wood has held a number of positions within the company, including as a Facility Manager at a nursing home in Walcha.

She took responsibility for all PAC residential care facilities in 2018 and then commenced management of PAC home care services in 2020.

Margaret Mackenzie, Chairman of Trustees at the Presbyterian Church (New South Wales) Property Trust, says, "[Ms Wood] is a passionate and talented leader, bringing highly relevant aged care experience and skills to this role. She has a deep desire to serve Jesus Christ in all that she does.

"Olivia is an advocate for improving the care and quality of life for all of our consumers and recognising the essential role that each and every PAC team member plays in this care. She works with great energy and possesses a demonstrated commitment to the Mission and Values of PAC.

"Under Olivia’s leadership, together with the [Executive Leadership Team] and all of our staff, PAC continues to deliver high quality aged care in these most challenging of times. The fact that we provide care of this high calibre is a significant achievement of which all staff can be proud."

Prior to her time at PAC, Ms Wood has held management positions as CEO of Medicare Local in Western Sydney, managed a sports company in Vietnam, and was an Executive Manager of a local Government community and aged care services department.
