Andrew Hyland


Andrew has a diverse background with a transformation focus across multiple industries including financial services, construction, transport, media, telecommunications, utilities, healthcare, and human and social services.

Andrew is a key influencer in the Australian Disability sector, as CEO of Lifestyle Solutions, one of Australia's largest national disability and out of home care providers supporting approximately 1,900 adults and children. With more than 2,000 staff and an operating budget of $150m AUD.

Since joining Lifestyle Solutionsin November 2016,Andrew has developed one of the most innovative and transformational strategies in the sector that will leverage the government designed National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Introduced in 2013, the NDIS is the Australian Government scheme designed to support people living with disability to have greater control and choice around the services they receive with an objective of providing a level playing field for all people living with disability.

The scheme will see investment increase from $10bn annually, supporting 90,000 people living with disability, to $22bn annually and supporting 450,000 people living with disability by 2019. This provides enormous opportunities to support the community and for organisations with purpose to make a difference, broaden their social impact and grow their business at the same time.

Andrew has led the redesign of Lifestyle Solutions with the purpose of "providing people with equal opportunity and equal respect' . Lifestyle's strategy is designed to create scale in the sector to develop efficiencies that cannot be achieved in the current fragmented market place via innovation through technology and collaboration in the sector.

Andrew will share insights with the group and help identify pathways for market entry and development.
