New chair for Southern Cross Care

Mike Christensen will oversee the implementation of a new strategic plan.

Aged care provider Southern Cross Care NSW & ACT has appointed Mike Christensen as its new chair.

A member of SCC’s board since 2021, Mr Christensen brings to the role extensive experience in finance, property, and governance.

The leadership change at the organisation – which provides residential care, home care, and retirement living – comes ahead of the launch of a new strategic plan.

In a statement, Mr Christensen expressed his enthusiasm for the aged care organisation’s future. “I am honoured to take on the role of chair at such an important time for Southern Cross Care NSW & ACT. Our new strategic plan sets a clear path for innovation and growth, and I am excited to work with our dedicated team to achieve our goals and continue providing exceptional care and support to our community.”

Mr Christensen replaces Lawrence Hallinan who – after four years as chair – will remain a director on SCC’s board.

Mr Christensen commenced the role of chair on 1 July.
