Prior to joining Centennial Park as CEO in Jan 2016, Janet spent 20 years in Professional Services where she was CEO of Fox Tucker Lawyers and, prior to that, CEO of the Perks Group (Financial Services).

Janet is also a Director of the Bedford Group, Chair of Bedford’s Audit & Risk Committee, and a Member of the CEO Performance Review Panel for the Adelaide Hills Council.

Centennial Park is the largest provider of cemetery services in the State.

It is a highly complex organisation with multiple stakeholders and a range of commercial challenges.

It is jointly owned by two local councils, it is completely self-funded (returning funds to its owner councils), and provides a vital community service.

Over 150,000 South Australians are memorialised in the Park, placing an enduring obligation on the organisation to maintain the Park for families and friends, and for future generations, into perpetuity.

In line with a clearly defined strategy, Centennial Park aims to build a strong authentic bond with the community, to promote the notion of remembrance and memorialisation, and to maintain the relevance of a cemetery in contemporary life.

It is changing the ways in which cemetery spaces are perceived and utilised.

Centennial Park welcomes over 500,000 visitors each year and has recently completed a new development – café, function rooms and a gift shop – to further enhance the visitor experience and to attract a new generation of visitors to the Park.
