CFA CEO Frances Diver has been named in the prestigious Top 50 Public Sector Women (Victoria) list.

The list recognises women who are doing impressive work in leadership roles in the Victorian public sector.

CFA Chair Greg Smith AM congratulated Frances for being recognised and commended her on her leadership during a period in which the organisation had faced some significant challenges.

“Frances has provided exceptional leadership during a critical time for CFA, and her inclusion on this prestigious list is due recognition of these leadership capabilities,” he said.

“She has improved accountability and delivered the stability required to ensure CFA fulfils its critical role in protecting lives and property.

“Frances’ leadership has also been critical as CFA evolves to reflect and better serve an increasingly diverse community. The inroads being made to ensure a modern CFA with fairness and inclusion at its core is a further credit to her leadership.”

Frances was appointed CFA CEO in June 2016 and has played a critical leadership role for the organisation making significant improvements in governance.

Prior to CFA, Frances was Deputy Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, where she was responsible for health service delivery, policy and performance including the public hospital system.
