Tony Keenan steps down

Launch Housing will begin to search for a new CEO after Tony Keenan today announced he will step down on May 25 from the role he has held for the past three years.

Launch Housing’s Chair Neil Chatfield noted Tony’s significant contribution to its mission to end homelessness, including in his nine-plus years as CEO of Hanover prior to its merger with Homeground to become Launch.

‘The depth of experience and sector knowledge, combined with a great passion to improve the lives of our clients made Tony a great choice to lead the bold aspirations which were established for Launch,’ Neil says.

‘Over the past three years under Tony’s leadership we have built an outstanding platform from which to serve our client base, through optimising our resources to increase the supply of housing, implementing a strong research and advocacy base, and restructuring our teams to focus on the ever growing needs of our clients.

‘On behalf of the Board and the entire Launch organisation we are thankful for the major contribution which Tony has made and we wish him well in his future endeavours.’
