TDA welcomes Interim CEO – statement by TDA Board Chair, Mary Faraone

I am pleased to advise that experienced TAFE senior executive Jenny Dodd, pictured, has been appointed as the interim CEO of TAFE Directors Australia.

Jenny will fill the role until a permanent CEO is appointed. It follows the resignation of CEO Craig Robertson who finished on 13 August and will take up the position of inaugural CEO of the Victorian Skills Authority.

I am delighted that Jenny will fill the position at this time. Jenny is a dedicated professional who was CEO of TasTAFE in Tasmania for three years from 2018 to 2020.

Previously, Jenny was with TAFE Queensland where she was General Manager Gold Coast and later Chief Academic Officer.

Prior to that she was with the Canberra Institute of Technology where she held a number of positions including Director of Marketing and Deputy CEO.

Jenny also served on the Board of TDA and is currently on the Board of Innovation & Business Skills Australia (IBSA)

I extend my appreciation to Jenny and, on behalf of the Board and TAFE colleagues around the country, welcome her to the role.
