St Basil’s NSW/ACT CEO Spiro Stavis resigns


The Chief Executive Officer of St Basil’s NSW/ACT, Spiro Stavis, has resigned effective from Thursday, March 23.

In a statement, the Board of Directors of St Basil’s Homes thanked Mr Stavis for his service as CEO since 2016.

“The Board acknowledges with thanks Spiro’s service as our CEO but also agrees with Spiro that the time has come for a change,” the statement reads.

“St Basil’s has faced challenging times and those challenges continue. However, the Board is confident that Mr Stavis’ decision to relinquish his current role is the correct one.”

The Board said they will start the process of recruiting a new permanent CEO soon and interim management arrangements have been put in place.

The roles and responsibilities of the CEO will be allocated among members of St Basil’s Senior Executive.

Director Peter Kaliaropoulos has been appointed by the Board as advisor and mentor to the Senior Executive members who will take on these additional responsibilities. Board Chairman, James Jordan, will provide support for Mr Kaliaropoulos.

“The appointment of a new CEO, who will bring fresh insights to St Basil’s, will equip us to face the challenges that the current aged care environment presents and will allow St Basil’s to prosper and to grow,” the Board said in their statement.

Mr Stavis first commenced work with St Basil’s in 2016, initially as Director of Property. He subsequently served as Acting CEO and as permanent CEO. During this period, St Basil’s faced many challenges, including the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In March 2021, the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) issued a report which alleged Mr Stavis engaged in “serious corrupt conduct” between 2014-16 in relation to planning proposals while he was the Director of City Planning at Canterbury City Council.

The ICAC referred the matter to the Director of Public Prosecutions and recommended it consider charging Mr Stavis with misconduct in public office.
