Local aged care organisation Peninsula Villages has welcomed Colin Osborne as its new CEO this month amidst a national crisis in the aged care sector caused by COVID-19 outbreaks.
Taking the reins after the retirement of CEO Shane Neaves in 2021, the Peninsula Villages Board said they were excited to have Osborne 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,” Peninsula Villages Honorary Chair Jan-Maree Tweedie said.
“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.”
Osborne 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 and 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,” he said.
“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.”
Prior to joining Peninsula Villages, Osborne was the CEO of Anglican Care, an aged care provider that operates aged care services throughout the Hunter, Central and Mid Coast.
