I would like to introduce myself. My name is Steve Thomas and I am proud to be the Village Manager of Oak Tree Retirement Village Skye. Originally from Shropshire in England, I am now happily settled long term in Australia and have been living in the local Frankston area for the past 6 years.
Frankston is a wonderful place to live. We are not far from the beauty of Port Phillip Bay and all of the amenities including shops, medical facilities and social venues, are within an easy, convenient distance. We are lucky to have a handy shopping village directly across the road from our village in Skye.
I have had over 25 years of experience in various management positions across different sectors but have always enjoyed the retirement industry most, having worked for Oak Tree since 2010. I am proud to be one of Oak Tree’s longest standing Village Managers and have had the pleasure of assisting in other Villages and attending Open Days all over the country wherever Oak Tree has needed another set of hands.
Oak Tree is family orientated business with an amazing growth potential and the drive to provide quality retirement living opportunities which are affordable and attainable to most Australians. I am consistently inspired by their focus on looking after residents’ needs and I enjoy managing the business side of the village to help ensure all residents are happy and content with life.
My support team, Sam and Val, are wonderful team players and are well liked by all of the residents. Sam and Val are here to support me in keeping the village looking its best, assisting with resident activities, some administration and resident support. They are a great asset to my team.
The residents at Oak Tree Skye always have a funny story to share or a piece of wisdom. I thoroughly appreciate interacting with our residents and enjoy their company. Oak Tree Retirement Village Skye is currently fully occupied with many happy residents enjoying life and keeping busy. When, in the future, a villa does become available, vacancies don’t last long, so why not pop by to visit me and put your name on our waiting list. I would love to show you around our wonderful home and keep you informed when a villa becomes available.
