Leading not-for-profit aged care organisation, Peninsula Villages is pleased to welcome and introduce a new Chief Executive Officer, Colin Osborne, who brings a wealth of experience to the role.
Prior to joining Peninsula Villages, Colin was the Chief Executive Officer of Anglican Care, a well-known community and aged care provider that operates aged care services throughout the Hunter, Central and Mid Coast. During his time as CEO at Anglican Care, the organisation grew by approximately 40% and now has twelve residential aged care homes, eight retirement villages and 400 community consumers.
Prior to his role in the aged care industry, Mr Osborne had an extensive career in senior management roles in the acute hospital industry, culminating with his appointment as CEO of the Calvary Mater Hospital where he was instrumental in its redevelopment.
Taking the reins after the retirement of CEO Shane Neaves in 2021, the Peninsula Villages Board is excited to have Colin join the organisation and lead it into the new year.
“Colin is a passionate and talented leader, bringing highly relevant aged care experience and skills to the position following his tenure at Anglican Care for more than eight years,” explained Peninsula Villages Honorary Chair, Jan-Maree Tweedie.
“Colin is an advocate for improving the care and quality of life for all of our residents and recognises the essential role that each and every member of our team plays in delivering choice to those they work with. Colin has already displayed a fantastic commitment to our values and is leading the team for a new era in 2022,” added Ms Tweedie.
As the new Chief Executive Officer Colin will be supported by the Executive Team with Jackie Bennett now in the position of Chief Operating Officer, Louise Clarke as Executive Care Manager and Nicola Burton leading Quality & Organisational Development.
“I am honoured to lead this innovative, community-focused organisation and have already been astounded by its dedication to being an aged care provider that breaks the mould when it comes to delivering care to its residents,” said Mr Osborne.
“Peninsula Villages is a progressive community organisation that has been driven by the passion from previous CEO Shane Neaves and I hope that I can continue this commitment moving forward and bring new skills and enthusiasm to the role,” he added.
