Sta n Manning OAM (FCPA, AAIB, FAIM) - Principal

Stan Manning has been involved in senior management in the care of the aged, and services to the retirement housing industry, health care, hospitals, and welfare for more than 40 years, firstly, in his capacity as a senior staff member of Wesley Mission, Sydney, from 1964 to 1987 (for 13 years as General Manager then Chief Executive), and now as a consultant to these industries.

He commenced consultancy practice in February 1987 to provide a specialist service to those involved in retirement living, care of the Aged, associated areas and general development projects.

As Chief Executive of Wesley Mission he was responsible for the development of one of the largest voluntary organisations within Australia, having a staff of nearly 1000, a budget in excess of $20 mill per annum, and operating over 60 care centres and services, many of which provided for Aged persons.

Under his leadership and personal direction, the Mission undertook major projects in the expansion of its care network for senior adults. His leadership in these fields has been marked by his development of innovative care concepts such as FLEXICARE and SATELLITE RETIREMENT/HOSTEL HOUSING and more recently SUPPORTED LIVING. During this period, he had special responsibility for the construction, development, project co ordination, and oversight of many major building projects.

He also has a background in Banking, Finance and Retail administration. He is a qualified Accountant (two degrees) and has undertaken management studies at the Australian Administrative Staff College.

In 1986 he was honoured by the Queen through the granting of the Order of Australia medal for " service to welfare......"

He has been heavily involved in other business, community and Church activities. He was a Director of the Medical Benefits Fund of Australia Limited (the largest private provider of Health Insurance in Australia), for 18 years until 2002, a member of its Council and Chairman both of its NSW Board of Advice and Private Hospitals and Health Services Committee which gave direct oversight to the 11 Private Hospitals it operated throughout Australia.

He has undertaken international research study tours relating to care of the Aged and has delivered and had published many papers on subjects relating to this field including a number which have led to the introduction of new and innovative forms of housing and delivery of care services. These are listed in the attachments.

Stan was a Member of the Commonwealth Government Panel of Advisors from its inception till 2005, a position that enabled him to be appointed by Aged Care providers who were sanctioned under the Aged Care Act 1997, to assist them to comply with responsibilities under the Act.

Since his commencement as a consultant, he has served hundreds of clients as shown on the list of current and completed projects included in the corporate profile
