Larry Minnix, the longtime president and chief executive officer of LeadingAge, will retire this year, the provider association announced Thursday.
Minnix took the LeadingAge helm in December 2000 and became an outspoken and charismatic leader of the association, which represents about 6,000 not-for-profit senior services and care providers.
In announcing Minnix’s retirement, LeadingAge emphasized his contributions in areas such as quality improvement, technology, financing and applied research. A recent highlight of his tenure occurred in October, when he attended the Oval Office signing of the IMPACT Act, which could lead to a new post-acute payment system.
“Larry’s contributions to our field over the past 15 years have been significant,” stated David Gehm, LeadingAge board chairman, in a press release. “He is transitioning out of an organization that is well-positioned to serve our members and the field.”
Minnix will end his tenure on or before Dec. 31, 2015. LeadingAge will work with an executive recruitment firm in searching for the next CEO.
