Getting to Know Our Clients: Ted Wilkes

The team at JVA are proud to have Ted Wilkes as our client.

Professor Wilkes has worked in public health for much of his working life, having been the CEO of the Derbarl Yerrigan Health Service in Perth and holding the position of Associate Professor at the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research (TICHR).

Ted Wilkes has devoted his life to battling the damage alcohol and drugs have wrought across indigenous communities. He is known as a true leader of West Australia and as a Noongar elder that has played a powerful and life-changing role in the lives of many.

As one of our clients, Ted instituted Salary packaging and increased insurances for these important institutions to ensure that ‘his mob’ grew to be better financial managers and more secure in their financial position in the long term.

We are proud to have him as a client and to receive a product of his other passion – music. In the image above, our Director Gres Vukman receives Ted’s Album – No more Yonga.
