LASA restructures as key staff move on

LASA has undergone another restructure following the departure of several senior staff over the last month.

It is understood that Dr Brent Davis left the organisation at the end of last week after just three months as the National Policy and Advocacy Manager.

Kay Richards moved on at the end of April after more than five years as the National Policy Manager and six years in the former Aged Care Association Australia (NSW) office.

Ms Richards represented LASA on a number of aged care committees and working groups including the National Aged Care Alliance, the Aged Care Complaints Commissioner Consultative Committee, the Aged Care Quality Agency and the Dementia Support Australia Expert Reference Group, which will see a change in their membership following her departure.

Ms Richards was the last remaining senior executive at LASA who had been with the association throughout its transition to a national organisation.

Corporate Affairs Manager, Lyn Larkin, resigned earlier this month after just six months in the role. She followed the departure of three other senior communications and member services staff – Stuart Bicknell, Billie Atanasova and Thalia Joannidou.

Mr Bicknell had been a senior manager at LASA NSW for six years, overseeing member services including communications and events.

Both Ms Atanasova and Ms Joannidou worked in member services in LASA’s Melbourne office.

LASA CEO Sean Rooney said he would not comment on internal staffing matters.
