Spiro Stavis has been officially appointed as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of St Basil’s NSW/ACT.

Mr Stavis who has been an integral part of the organisation for the past six years has been the interim CEO over the last 18 months.

“In the last 18 months as interim CEO, Spiro was instrumental in driving the development of St Basils’ five-year pathway as outlined in the organisation’s strategic plan with a person-centred approach and the ageing community at the heart of it,” Chairman of St Basil’s Board of Directors, James Jordan, said in a statement confirming that the new role is permanent.

The decision was made “to enable Stavis to continue the vital role of leading the organisation to deliver quality aged care services”.

Praising Mr Stavis’ initiative to lead a complete restructure of the organisation through his most recent program promoting and supporting the ‘Emotional Wellbeing for Older People’, Mr Jordan acknowledged that the new CEO “obtained grant funding for new HR and Governance systems to support the operational aspects of our services, and invested in improved infection control measures and planning for the ultimate health and safety of residents”.

“I am confident that he will continue to drive the St Basil’s team on its current trajectory to fulfil its mission of delivering quality services to support individual needs of ageing Australians including Greek Australians,” Mr Jordan concluded.
