Mr O’Neill believes it is time for ‘fresh blood and fresh ideas’.
“When I commenced this role in 2006, I received a legacy of 30 years of growth and development,” Mr O’Neill says.
“I leave at the 40 year mark, confident that the organisation is in good shape with a bright future.”
National Seniors chairman David Carvosso says Mr O’Neill has been an outstanding lobbyist for older Australians with both government and big business.
“Michael started with National Seniors in 2006, promising to stay for five years. We are fortunate that he has stayed in the job for nearly a decade,” says Mr Carvosso.
“He goes with our good wishes sure in the knowledge that he has laid down strong foundations for his successor.”
The National Seniors board has embarked on the search for a new chief executive with a replacement expected to be announced in May.
