Chris Hilton, former General Manager of Finance at Lendlease and Allity Aged Care, will start in the role at the Not For Profit from January 2021.
Chris spent 10 years at Lendlease, working his way up to head the group’s Aged Care Finance division before heading across to Allity when Archer Capital purchased Lendlease’s 31 aged care homes for $270 million in 2013.
VMCH says the new CFO is highly skilled in all facets of aged funding and reporting, integration and sales; retirement governance requirements; leadership during growth and productivity improvement – useful experience as the organisation moves forward from COVID.
As we reported here, VMCH had a $100 million pipeline of aged care and retirement village developments in 2017, but has diversified this year, repurposing a former aged care home into its first palliative care centre.
VMCH CEO Sonya Smart described Chris’ appointment as a ‘great coup’ for the organisation.
“His experience is extensive and on a personal level, Chris’ personable and compassionate nature will be a great cultural fit at VMCH,” she said.
