Not-for-profit aged care provider Anglicare Sydney has announced that Grant Millard will step down as the organisation’s chief executive officer.

Mr Millard gave notice this week to leave at the end of his current contract after 10 years as CEO, Anglicare Sydney said in a statement.

Mr Millard, who joined the organisation in 2011, oversaw change at the organisation including the merger of Anglican Retirement Villages and Sydney Anglican Home Mission at his mid-point in July 2016.

“That 10 years has been a remarkable period of growth and change,” Mr Millard said. “I have always believed that a tenure of 10 years would be a good period for the leadership of Anglicare.”

Anglicare chairman Greg Hammond praised Mr Millard for his “servant leadership”.

“His humility, compassion, and commitment to serving our clients have guided Anglicare Sydney through some bountiful times and also some challenging times,” Mr Hammond said.

He said Mr Millard’s skill, knowledge and wisdom have been critical to a successful partnership between the board and senior leadership team.  

“I am grateful that the fruit of this partnership has provided Anglicare Sydney with very capable leadership and a strong foundation to continue to increase our presence in areas of greatest need,” Mr Hammond said.

The board has engaged The Insight Group to help finds Mr Millard’s successor.

It is intended a new CEO will be installed by early 2022 following a transition period, Anglicare Sydney said.
