Mr Gray co-founded aged care software vendor iCare Health before it was acquired by Telstra Health in 2014, and also set up Melbourne-based  Agnes Investments, an investor in Hayylo.

Michael Panaccio is investment principal at venture capital manager Starfish Ventures and has been a director of technology businesses in Australia and the US.

“We feel very privileged for collaborating and having the inputs of high calibre executives in our strategic plan and vision for the future”, Mr Satur said.

The announcement of the new executive appointments follows that of Megan Braithwaite as National Director of Accounts and Growth last October.

Positive social impact

Mr Heaysman says the new appointments cement Hayylo’s commitment to being a positive social impact organisation.
