Ryman Healthcare’s first Australian CEO is Cameron Holland (pictured above) and their new Chief Construction Officer is Chris Evans.
The new CEO has extensive experience in the aged care and retirement living sectors having worked for Home and Disability Services and Australian Unity.
Mr Holland will lead Ryman’s operations in Australia, including its five operational villages and six villages under development.
Meanwhile, Mr Evans (pictured right) took up his new position after 25 years working for John Holland Construction Group.
Most recently Mr Evans worked at Sydney Airport as Chief Assets & Infrastructure Officer, looking after a significant capital investment and construction programme and a team of more than 300.
Ryman Group Chief Executive Gordon MacLeod said the appointments followed an extensive international search.
“Cameron and Chris are proven leaders with the experience and the energy to help us tackle the huge amount of work ahead of us as we continue to expand,” Mr MacLeod said.
Both executives will join the Ryman team in April.
Ryman Healthcare opened its first village in Melbourne in 2014, and last year achieved its target of having five operational villages in and around Melbourne by the end of 2020, six years after launch.
