Aaron Chia Crop

Aaron is the CEO of the Motor Accident Commission (MAC) in South Australia and prior to his current appointment he spent 10 years with the SA Ambulance Service where he was the Deputy CEO.

He started his career as a Chartered Accountant with Ernst & Whinney (now EY) subsequently moving into commerce and on to senior executive roles across a range of different sectors in Victoria and South Australia including Retail, Finance, Health, Biotechnology, Construction, Hospitality and Manufacturing.

After working in Health and Biotechnology, Aaron decided to invest more time in organisations with a community impact focus and has since held various board and committee positions which include Community Business Bureau (CBB the not4profit people), SA Fire and Emergency Services Commission (SAFECOM), Super SA, Spastic Centres of SA Foundation and Western Domestic Violence Service.

Aaron believes SA Ambulance Service was a significant milestone in his career as it was a time when he was able to apply his leadership, commercial knowledge and experience to an organisation that existed purely for community benefit, an objective he is now able to continue with his role at MAC, with its focus on road safety and motor vehicle accident compensation, and as Chair of CBB, a social enterprise that is committed to helping the not for profit sector achieve its social objectives.

Aaron has a Bachelor of Economics from Monash University, is a fellow of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand and a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
