The CEO of Sydney provider Anglican Retirement Village has announced his retirement after 13 years with the organisation.

Sydney provider Anglican Retirement Villages (ARV) has released a statement announcing the retirement of CEO, Ken Barber.

Mr Barber will begin his retirement at the end of August 2009 and he will end his participation on ARV’s board at the same time.

In total Mr Barber has been with ARV for 13 years and has served as CEO for the past nine.

“During the last 13 years, Ken has made a significant contribution to the growth and strategic development of ARV,” said the statement.

“His dedicated service has been characterised by an unswerving commitment to the fundamental principles of this wonderful organisation; Care and Christian Witness.

“These foundations have enabled growth and services development, allowing ARV to touch the lives of more people and do this in a respectful and sustainable way.”

Mr Barber joined ARV in the position of Chief Financial Officer in June 1996 where he was instrumental in laying a sound financial platform for ARV.

“No one person is responsible for the success of an organisation with the complex and diverse geographic and cross-disciplinary characteristics of ARV,” the statement continued.

“From his appointment as [CEO] in 2000, Ken developed a group of highly skilled senior executives to direct the various spheres of operation. This team is well placed to continue the growth of ARV.” 

Mr Barber has advised the ARV board that he plans to spend more time with his family. He also intends to travel with his wife Marilyn and to pursue further study.

The board will now begin the process of appointing a new CEO.
