Kevin Griffiths, CEO, Carinity

Queensland-based not-for-profit aged care provider Carinity has appointed Kevin Griffiths as its new Chief Executive Officer. Griffiths joins Carinity after a 30-year career in international airlines, followed by roles with Aveo and the Uniting Church upon his return to Australia.

In a statement, Griffiths expressed enthusiasm about leading Carinity during its 75th anniversary year.

“From humble beginnings, Carinity has grown into a significant organisation, touching the lives of thousands of people,” he said. “We exist to show God’s love through the care we offer to those in need. We make a real difference to those around us—not just by what we do but by why and how we do it,” he said.

Carinity, an outreach of Queensland Baptists, offers a range of services, including residential aged care, retirement villages, home care, disability support, chaplaincy, alternative education, and youth and family services including counselling.

Carinity Council Chair Richard Wray highlighted Griffiths’ passion for the impact of faith-based not-for-profit organisations. “Kevin is passionate about people, customers, strategy, and technology. He has a heart to work with and through people to achieve great things,” Wray said. “His personal faith, integrity, skills, and experience are a good fit with the unique requirements of the role. We are keen for him to lead an expansion of the impact Carinity has on people across the state.”

Griffiths succeeds David Angell, who served as Carinity’s Interim CEO for over 12 months. Carinity operates 11 aged care communities and five retirement villages.
