New Chair announced for On the Line Australia Board


On the Line Australia is pleased to announce that Associate Professor Steven Moylan has been appointed Chair of the Board, effective 28 October 2021. Steven succeeds Jeanette Jifkins, who is retiring after serving as Chair for eight years.

Steven is a well-accomplished psychiatrist and current Clinical Director of Barwon Health Mental Health, Drugs and Alcohol Services, and has been an On the Line Board Member since 2017. Steven has a strong interest in medical leadership and governance, clinical care, and research in psychiatry. In 2009, Steven was awarded the prestigious Frank Knox Memorial Fellowship to undertake specialist public health, leadership and management training at Harvard University. Steven is also a Clinical Associate Professor at Deakin University.

Associate Professor Steven Moylan said: “Our core business is helping people in their time of need. Working with the Board, our role is to support everyone in our organisation to bring their best to our important work. We remain committed to supporting our staff, clients, funders and our wider communities.”

“I am looking forward to the year ahead and working with the team at On the Line. We have tremendous strengths, and by working together, we can achieve much for our community.”

On the Line would also like to acknowledge two Board members who have recently retired and contributed a lot to our organisation, Dr Nicholas Voudouris and Jeanette Jifkins.

Dr Nicholas Voudouris was first elected as a Director to the On the Line Board in 2007 and has served in many roles, including as Chair, Committee Chair and acting CEO. Nicholas’ last Board meeting was on 28 October 2021.

Jeanette Jifkins was appointed Chair in 2016 and stepped down from the position on 28 October 2021. Jeanette has worked tirelessly in her role as Director and Chair and has led our Board through some great as well as challenging times. Jeanette will end her tenure on the On the Line Board on 31 December 2021.

On the Line would like to sincerely thank Nicholas and Jeanette and wish them well for their future endeavours.
