New CEO, Errol Turner 

Southern Cross Care (WA) (SCC), today announced that Mr Errol Turner has been appointed as its new CEO, replacing Mr Stuart Flynn who is stepping down after 15 years’ dedicated service.

Mr Turner will commence in the role on Monday 6th May 2013 and will work with Mr Flynn until 12th July 2013 to ensure a smooth transition.

SCC Chairman, Mr John Bryant, acknowledged the outstanding contribution Stuart Flynn has made to the organisation:

“The Directors of SCC wish to thank Stuart for his leadership over the last 15 years. Stuart has been instrumental in SCC’s growth and diversification, successfully meeting the Board’s commercial and community investment objectives and ensuring that the organisation continues to serve the whole community including the marginalised and disadvantaged.

“Having guided SCC to become one of the largest and leading aged care providers in Western Australia, Stuart’s leadership has resulted in over 3,000 Western Australians benefiting from SCC’s care, support and accommodation.

“He leaves SCC in a strong position of continued growth and we wish him all the best in his retirement.

“We are pleased to appoint Errol as CEO following the Board’s rigorous selection process. The Board is confident that it has selected a CEO with a superior track record of organisational leadership and experience. We look forward to his efforts to ensure SCC achieves its long-term strategic goals in a legislatively changing environment,” said Mr Bryant.

Mr Turner joined SCC in 2008, where he has held the positions of Chief Financial Officer and Deputy CEO.  He has over 30 years’ leadership experience in a range of private and publicly listed companies.

Mr Turner said he was honoured by the appointment.

“Providing high quality aged care to Western Australians is a privilege and I’m honoured to be able to build on the organisation’s rich heritage and legacy.

“I’m grateful the Board’s succession process will enable me over the next few weeks, together with Stuart, to meet with and listen to our people across WA who all contribute to enhancing the quality of life of those we support.”

Mr Flynn said that making the decision to retire was difficult.

“Having joined SCC over 15 years ago, the decision to depart was never going to be easy. I’m proud of what we have achieved as an organisation and I’m confident it will continue to thrive in the future. I plan to remain active in the industry but on a more part-time, consultative basis”
