Juniper Chief Executive Officer, Mr Chris Hall AM, has announced his retirement, vacating the position that he has held since 2018.
Juniper is the largest not-for-profit providers of residential aged care services in Western Australia, with more than 2,000 staff and volunteers who support Australians throughout regional and metropolitan WA.
Mr Hall has held senior leadership positions for over thirty years in the Australian human services industry, including time as CEO of MercyCare and UnitingCare West.
Mr Hall said it is the right time for him to retire and pursue some personal interests and activities.
“It has been an honour and privilege to have led Juniper during a time of unprecedented challenges and demands on the aged care sector,” said Mr Hall.
“I’m exceptionally proud of all that the team at Juniper has achieved and I thank them and
everyone who has supported Juniper and me in the role,” he said.
Maree Arnason, Juniper’s Board Chair said, “The last few years have been some of the most challenging and complex for the Australian aged care sector and the Board and I wish to acknowledge and sincerely thank Chris for the strong leadership that he has shown during this time both for Juniper and within the broader aged care sector.”
The Board of Juniper has commenced a search for a new Chief Executive Officer.
A date for Mr Hall’s departure from Juniper will be announced in due course.
