CEO Peter Hoppo

As ACIA’s CEO, Peter supports our member organisations, advocates for the needs of our sector, and promotes improved public understanding of the high-quality care provided to older Australians every day.

Peter has significant experience in working with Industry Associations and achieving positive outcomes for member organisations and the people they enable.

He has a track record of effective advocacy, policy development and member engagement over many years – hearing firsthand from members what they are experiencing in their efforts to provide quality services and formulating a strategy to support and assist them with information and resources.

Prior to entering the Care Sector, Peter spent many years as a senior policy advisor and strategist with the South Australian Government including as the Chief of Staff to the Minister for Finance and Public Sector.

While not afraid to speak out on behalf of members Peter’s preferred way of operating is through quiet diplomacy with a focus on collective impact and collaborative solutions.

Peter has postgraduate qualifications in management and began his career by completing an electrical apprenticeship and continues to have a keen interest in the Vocational Education and Training Sector.
