Bryan Lipmann is the Chief Executive Officer and founder of Wintringham.
He is an economics and social work graduate who has vast experience working with socially and financially disadvantaged older people.
Under Bryan’s leadership, Wintringham has obtained substantial funding and support to enable the establishment of a range of housing and services to many aged people who were living in poor and insecure conditions.
His ability to develop and implement high quality services that are financially viable, has influenced Government policy and welfare agencies towards a more co-ordinated response to a group of people who are some of the most disadvantaged within Australian society.
Bryan is a regular contributor to a range of local and international aged care and housing forums, and is the author of a book "The Elderly Homeless", which looks at the international provision of services to frail homeless men and women. He is a past President of the Community Housing Federation of Victoria.
In 1999, Bryan received the Order of Australia (AM) for his work with the elderly homeless. He was acknowledged as a Distinguished Alumni of La Trobe University in 2009.
