Aged and Community Services Australia (ACSA) has announced that John Kelly is stepping down as CEO as the peak body moves to become a single national entity.

ACSA said it was now recruiting a new leader to oversee the new management structure, which would bring together 70 staff nationally.

Adjunct Professor Kelly has been CEO since March 2012.

In a statement on Friday the organisation said it was in the final stages of transition from a federation model to a single national entity.  The new company is registered with ASIC, while the SA/NT and WA state associations had voted to move into the national body, and NSW/ACT and Tasmania were due to vote soon.

“On behalf of all of the members of ACSA across the Federation, the board thanks John for his leadership and commitment to achieving a single national entity, in addition to raising the profile of ACSA nationally as a member organisation within the sector, and coordinating input into the aged care reform agenda,” said ACSA president Paul Sadler.

ACSA confirmed that Adjunct Professor Kelly would remain as CEO during the recruitment for his replacement.
