Mr Millard has served as CEO of Anglican Community Service (ACS) since 2016, prior to this, he was CEO of Anglicare, Diocese of Sydney from 2011 until ACS's formation in 2016.
Before Anglicare, Mr Millard was the General Manager of Moore Theological College and was in senior management roles at Coca-Cola for 13 years. He was previously a partner at a major international accounting firm as a qualified lawyer and accountant.
Mr Millard says, "This coming August marks a completion of ten years as Chief Executive Officer for me at Anglicare.
"That ten years has been a remarkable period of growth and change, noting a five year period before and five years since the merger of Anglican Retirement Villages and Sydney Anglican Home Mission Society in July 2016.
"I have always believed that a tenure of ten years would be a good period for the leadership of Anglicare."
Chairman of Anglicare Sydney, Greg Hammond OAM, says that it is with great sadness that he is announcing that Mr Millard's decision to retire has been accepted and that the organisation will begin a succession plan to take Anglicare Sydney into the next phase of its strategy.
Mr Hammond praised Mr Millard for his service and leadership over his nearly ten year term as CEO at Anglicare Sydney.
"Grant’s passion is for servant leadership. His strength in faith is absolute. His humility, compassion, and commitment to serving our clients have guided Anglicare Sydney through some bountiful times and also some challenging times," says Mr Hammond.
"Grant’s skill, knowledge and wisdom have been critical to a successful partnership with the Board and the senior leadership team. I am grateful that the fruit of this partnership has provided Anglicare Sydney with very capable leadership and a strong foundation to continue to increase our presence in areas of greatest need."
Anglicare will commence a search for a new CEO, the Board is committed to undertaking an extensive recruitment process to find the right person for the role. It is intended that a transition period will take place with a new CEO installed by early 2022.
