New ACH Group CEO excited about road ahead
ACH Group today welcomes new Chief Executive Officer Frank Weits, who is excited about leading the organisation and its people in a way that will offer new opportunities for older people to live good lives.
Mr Weits comes to ACH Group with a great record in organisational transformation and cultural change leadership, with a strong focus on customer centricity.
Whilst new to the sector, Mr Weits has extensive experience in adjoining sectors and will bring these invaluable insights to ACH Group.
ACH Group Chair Ms Mary Patetsos said the ACH Group Board couldn’t be more pleased with the appointment.
“With the sector experiencing unprecedented change as a result of the deregulation of Home Care, the increased scrutiny on quality of care and quality of life, Mr Weits’ attributes as a problem solver and decision maker, his strategic vision and experience in growing businesses through innovation and customer centricity, will enable ACH Group to identify new opportunities so we can continually improve the way we support people throughout their ageing journey.”
Mr Weits has previously been instrumental in changing and leading the client centric functions at PwC Australia and in the Netherlands, his country of origin. He is an active community contributor via various Board roles including his role as the Honorary Consul for the Kingdom of the Netherlands in South Australia and Northern Territory.
“Mr Weits will build on ACH Group’s strengths, and the legacy that has been created by the previous five CEOs throughout ACH Group’s 66-year history by continuing to build ACH Group into a world class, best practice organisation that brings together the best of aged and health care services, and continues to advocate for older people.”
Mr Weits said he was delighted to be joining an iconic aged care organisation whose values closely mirrored his own.
“I am looking forward to bringing my skills and experience to the table and working closely with the expert team that has such a tremendous
record of supporting older people through quality care. Notably, ACH Group also demonstrates a sound commitment to ensuring that the quality of care is matched by quality of life experiences, and this excites me. I realise that there are many challenges ahead, as we navigate through the changing climate due to government reforms and the ageing population, but ACH Group is already in an excellent position to continue delivering on its vision of good lives.”
Mr Weits is delighted to be at the helm of an organisation in very sound financial shape, and with a broad and growing customer base.
