Playgroup Tasmania is delighted to introduce Karla Hogg incoming Chief Executive Officer Playgroup Tasmania. Karla has spent her career in the banking & finance sectors. After running her own successful business in Melbourne, she moved to Tasmania and took up the position of Product Manager at Tasmanian Perpetual Trustees Limited. Since having twin boys and a third son, Karla founded in 2013 Tasmanian Building Inspections of which she is the Managing Director.
Karla has a Masters of Applied Finance and Investment and a Bachelor of Business (Banking & Finance).

She has close links to and has volunteered with the Cape Hope Charity where she assisted fundraising efforts. The organisation raises between $60-80,000 per annum for supporting local charities in Launceston Tasmania.
A commitment to ongoing professional learning is evidenced by Karla’s curriculum vita. She speaks Japanese, plays sport and is actively involved with her young boy’s education. The Playgroup Tasmania Board is very much looking forward to working with Karla.
