Anglicare Sydney CEO Grant Millard to retire

Published on

Grant Millard, the CEO of Anglicare Sydney, is to leave the Not For Profit community services and aged care provider.

“It is with justifiable sadness that I announce that we have accepted Grant’s decision to retire as CEO and to commence a succession plan to take Anglicare Sydney into the next phase of its strategy,” said Anglicare Sydney Chairman Greg Hammond OAM.

Mr Millard, a member of the Synod of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney, has served as CEO of Anglicare Sydney since 1 September 2016 after being CEO of Anglicare, Diocese of Sydney from August 2011 until Anglicare Sydney’s formation on 1 July 2016, through the merger of Anglicare and ARV.

Before Anglicare Sydney, Grant was the General Manager of Moore Theological College, where he was responsible for all the College’s non-academic activities. Prior to joining Moore College in early 2010, Grant, a qualified lawyer and accountant, spent 13 years working in senior management roles within what is now known as Coca-Cola Europacific Partners in Sydney, London and Athens, where he was responsible for taxation, treasury, risk & insurance and business development.

“This coming August marks a completion of 10 years as Chief Executive Officer for me at Anglicare. That 10 years has been a remarkable period of growth and change, noting a five-year period before and five years since the merger of Anglican Retirement Villages and Sydney Anglican Home Mission Society in July 2016. I have always believed that a tenure of 10 years would be a good period for the leadership of Anglicare,” he said.

Mr Hammond praised Mr Millard for his service and leadership over his term as CEO.

“Grant’s passion is for servant leadership. His strength in faith is absolute. His humility, compassion, and commitment to serving our clients have guided Anglicare Sydney through some bountiful times and also some challenging times.”

19 residents of Anglicare Sydney’s Newmarch House in Kingswood, in Sydney’s western suburbs, died from COVID-19 in April and May last year, where 37 residents and 34 staff members tested positive to the coronavirus.
