Newly is very pleased to announce that we now have a presence in Sydney, servicing clients right across New South Wales.
Our newest team member, Business Development Manager – Rina Fuimaono, is now contacting our current NSW aged care and disability support providers, and introducing the business.
Rina comes to Newly from a 20 year background in healthcare.
Originally a nurse, Rina always had a strong interest in Pathology and moved into the sector more than 15 years ago.
Her work at pathology laboratory, Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology (member of the National Sonic Healthcare group), involved home visits, domicillary care and running screening clinics. A move to Sydney saw Rina grow into managerial roles where she trained staff and worked on clinical trials.
“I happily branched out into Sales and Marketing – visiting GPs and specialist doctors to promote pathology services. I developed tools such as doctors’ surveys and marketing kits and visited theatres and day surgeries to talk to doctors and their teams about pathology needs,” she says.
More recently, Rina worked at a start-up that developed a digital app that diagnoses skin conditions and cancers. This experience in digital health is a great fit with the Newly online matching function.
Rina says she is ‘very much looking forward to expanding Newly’s NSW footprint.’
“I’m focused on building relationships, developing new channels and partnerships and creating real brand awareness.
“I understand the challenges that providers can have in securing reliable personal carers. As Newly is such a terrific resource to help them, I’ll be building our reputation through trust, reliability and professionalism.”
Rina says she’s pleased to see that her career has come full circle.
“When I was a nurse in aged care, I realised that clients just want to feel safe and secure,” she says.
“If my work at Newly can help facilitate that by providing good quality carers, I know I will have achieved something that is very important.”
