Shane Neaves has stepped down as CEO of New South Wales regional aged care provider Peninsula Villages after two stints at the helm.

Mr Neaves led the organisation from December 2010 to December 2013 before returning to the role in November 2015.

Peninsula Villages said Mr Neaves bid a sad yet satisfied farewell to residents and staff on his final day on 2 July.

“While NSW lockdown restrictions prevented to full breadth of celebrations due to take place, the global pandemic could not overshadow the tremendous work and his numerous achievements at Peninsula Villages over the past 11 years,” Peninsula Villages said in a statement.

Mr Neaves said it has been a joy and privilege to be part of this organisation’s journey.

“It has been a wonderful community to work with and for, and my time here is reflective of the happiest and most satisfying period of my professional life,” Mr Neaves said.

“I believe that over the past five plus years we have achieved many great things for our community and residents,” Mr Neaves said.

Fred JP Van Steel, who joined the organisation in May, has replaced Mr Neaves as CEO.

Mr Van Steel’s experience includes more than four years as CEO of employment and disability services provider Ability Options and over a year as CEO at Mental Health and Wellbeing Australia Limited.
