New chief executive officers have been appointed at two Sunshine Coast-based organisations focused on the welfare of seniors.

“His commitment to social challenges such as homelessness and loneliness aligns with Sundale’s values of compassion and community service.

Mr Taylor said he was pleased to take up the role at Sundale, which started 60 years ago and has 600 employees.

“I’m excited about the challenge and the opportunity to lead Sundale and help implement the board’s strategic vision, which will ultimately lead to better services, more community-centric environments and greater stability of our operations,” he said.
