Larry Minnix to retire from LeadingAge

In a letter to partners and friends of LeadingAge emailed on Thursday, Feb. 5, 2015, LeadingAge CEO and President Larry Minnix announced his retirement. After 15 years with the aging services organization, Minnix will step aside at the end of this year.

In his letter, he noted the timing of his retirement is intentional in that he hopes his replacement can establish a beneficial working relationship with the next White House administration that will take over in 2017. Minnix cites his own experience joining at the same time that a new White House took over in 2000 and how that allowed him to get in on the ground floor of policy formulation.

In a follow-up letter, LeadingAge Board Chair David Gehm stated that the organization will “miss Larry’s energy, spirit, and leadership” as it seeks to “find a very worthy candidate to fill his shoes and guide LeadingAge into the next years.”

The board of LeadingAge has a Search Committee that will be initiating a succession plan immediately, with the first steps being gathering input on important attributes of the position from LeadingAge members, staff and partners.
