Aged Care Guild announces new CEO
Ross Johnston, Chairman of the Aged Care Guild (the Guild), has announced the appointment of Mr. Matthew Richter as its new CEO. Mr. Richter will start at the Guild from June 1, 2018, taking over from interim CEO, Mr. Lee Hill.
“On behalf of our members, I want to welcome Matthew to the Aged Care Guild. We believe his wealth of experience in the government, health and financial sectors will serve the Guild well as we continue to grow the Guild’s profile and work alongside policy makers to ensure industry needs are met,” said Mr. Johnston.
Mr. Richter joins the Guild after an eight year tenure with the ACT Health Directorate where his key achievements included securing more than $100 million of additional funding for health programs, the implementation of various hospital infrastructure and health industry improvement initiatives and the negotiation of national health reform agreements and acts.
Mr. Richter’s career experience also encompasses other policy roles across the ACT Government as well as a number of roles in the financial services industry with corporate advisory firm Inteq, global insurance firm Allianz Group and financial group, Macquarie.
“I’m looking forward to continuing the Aged Care Guild’s advocacy work in the sector,” said Mr. Richter.
“A key priority for the Guild is working to secure a sustainable funding plan that meets the needs of our ageing Australians and keeps the issues that we face as an industry a priority for the Government.
“This is critical to ensure that the sector is able to continue to provide the range of quality services needed by the growing number of ageing Australians,” Mr. Richter concluded.
