The APAC Board is pleased to announce the appointment of David Ensor as the company’s CEO, commencing on 18 December.
David is a passionate leader in education and development, with more than 30 years of experience in leading change and growth in various sectors and contexts.
I am confident that he will bring the leadership skills that APAC needs as it explores new areas of operation. He will be based at our office in Melbourne.
David joins APAC from International Needs Australia, where he was CEO. INA is a not-for-profit organisation that works with local partners to create lasting change in South, Southeast Asia and Eastern Africa.
Originally from Southern Africa, where he led a rural education NGO for six years, David moved to Australia in 1999. His work in South Africa was recognised by then President Nelson Mandela with a Presidential Education Award.
David subsequently led the parliamentary transformation program funded by the European Union to support the transition of the newly democratic South African parliamentary system.
David has held senior roles in Australian higher education, including as Chief Operating Officer at La Trobe University. As a Director in the South Australian Department of Education he was responsible for managing more than $320 million in school funding.
He holds a Master of Education in Adult Education from the University of the Witwatersrand.
David said: “I look forward to exploring how APAC can continue to best support the development of psychology accreditation services in higher education in a context where there is growing demand for quality psychology education.”
