Alzheimer’s Australia WA CEO Steps Down
2 July 2012 at 10:53 am

The chief executive of Alzheimer’s Australia WA Frank Schaper has resigned from his position having served as chief executive for 15 years.

The announcement that Schaper would stand down from September was made by chairman Craig Masarei.

“Frank’s vision in tackling the dementia epidemic in WA is unparalleled and many people have benefited from his drive, professionalism and insight into making WA a better place for people living with dementia,” Masarei said.

During his time, Schaper led the transformation of the organisation from a service provider to an organisation that has advocated for the awareness of Alzheimer's. As a global leader in dementia care, he has also formed close alliances with other Alzheimer’s support organisations in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

“Frank has been a champion and a strong advocate for people living with dementia and was influential in the development of WA’s Dementia Action Plan,” Masarei said.

“On behalf of everyone at Alzheimer’s Australia WA, I would like to express our gratitude to Frank for his leadership in guiding the organisation through both challenging times and exciting moments.”

Alzheimer’s Australia WA Board has commenced the process to identify a new chief executive to ensure a seamless transition.

“I am confident that the organisation is well positioned for its next phase of growth as it takes on the dementia epidemic that we are facing.”
