Jetts Australia Chief Executive named Director at aged care and wellbeing specialist ComLink
February 5, 2020

Jetts Australia Chief Executive Elaine Jobson has been appointed a Director of Sunshine Coast-based aged care and wellbeing specialist ComLink.

Jobson has more than 25 years’ experience in the fitness industry, and 15 years in other executive management roles, having previously worked in Europe, Asia and South Africa for global brands such as Fitness First and Virgin Active.

Resident on the Sunshine Coast, Jobson said she was “thrilled” to start her new role, stating “I’m motivated by the opportunity to help people lead a better life and ComLink is a perfect fit for me.

“The company is poised for exciting growth helping even more people to lead active and independent lives.

“It’s a really exciting time to join the ComLink Board as the business enters an exciting new phase of innovation, collaboration and expansion.”

Announcing the appointment today, ComLink Chairman Tim Robson said he was delighted to officially welcome Jobson to the board.

He advised "we are incredibly fortunate to have someone of Elaine’s calibre and background in health and wellbeing join our board.

“I welcome Elaine to the board and look forward to continuing to enjoy the benefits of her experience building successful companies through great cultures and exceptional leaders.”

ComLink recently launched Vitality Village, an Australian-first health and wellness hub, which begins construction this month, to be based in the Sunshine Coast health precinct.
