Meet the Management Team

If there’s a problem that needs solving or you just fancy a chat, the door to our friendly team is always open.

Ric Cohen, Sales Manager

ric cohenWith over 25 years experience in the retirement village industry, Ric Cohen is one of the most experienced Queenslanders in his field. Having joined us in early 2006 at The Village on the Downs in Toowoomba, Ric has gone on to senior sales roles at our Villages at Yeronga, Coorparoo and now Taigum. Ric’s track record speaks for itself – having sold out 100% of Precinct 1 at The Village Taigum before construction had even commenced. He has an inherent interest in people, and takes the time to understand his clients’ circumstances and requirements.

During his time at The Village Retirement Group, Ric has worked closely with the senior management team to ensure The Village properties avoid the industry trend towards corporatisation.


Michael Winter, Village Manager


With experience across commercial and not-for-profit providers, Michael’s 12 years in the retirement industry has spanned multiple management roles across both commercial and not-for-profit organisations.

Michael is particularly excited about the full ‘continuum of care’ and exceptional standards that will be achieved for residents through the partnership between Anglicare and the Village Retirement Group.
