Mr Basil Hanna
Basil has been the Chief Executive Officer for over 10 years. He is an advocate for children and committed to making a difference for children who have suffered trauma from abuse by assisting with the growth of the work of Parkerville Children and Youth Care and by creating community awareness on the issues of abuse.
At 17 years of age, Basil commenced nursing and graduated as a general nurse and mental health nurse. He obtained a science degree after 15 years of nursing, then successfully graduated from Curtin with an MBA. Basil is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
