James Barrientos
Chief Executive Officer

James is passionate about change. He knows change doesn’t always guarantee improvement, but it does guarantee its possibility.

The opportunity to contribute to positive change in peoples’ lives through assistive technology is one of the biggest rewards for James in his current role of Chief Executive Officer of LifeTec Australia. ‘To be able to play a part, no matter how small, that benefits peoples’ lives is both personally fulfilling and a key motivator for me’.
James has spent over 20 years managing health organisations at a high level. His early career as a medical prosthetist-orthotist also provides him with a sound understanding of clinical governance. In addition to his position of Chief Executive Officer at LifeTec Australia, James is also a co-owner and director of two private companies in the corporate sector. This has helped LifeTec to employ contemporary business principles to ensure our continued viability and optimisation of public funds.
