Lawrence ‘Larry’ Fallon, a businessman with 46 years’ experience, is the owner/operator of a Bus Service in North East Victoria with 130 employees. He has been a Bus Association Victoria ‘BusVic’ Committee Member for over 40 years and was a ‘BusVic’ representative on the Transport Safety Victoria Committee for over 20 years.

The introduction of the Bus Safety Act (2009) and Bus Safety Regulations 2010 brought in a new accreditation process with new regulatory requirements for the operation of bus services in Victoria from the end of 2010. In addition, the Bus Services Act 1995 also carries regulatory requirements of some types of bus operators who undertake bus service contracts in Victoria.

The Monash Institute of Transport Studies, in conjunction with Transport Safety Victoria, the Department of Transport and BusVic, developed an education program, Transport Management Course for Bus Operators, to assist persons to meet the requirements of the Bus Safety Act (2009), Bus Safety Regulations 2010 and Bus Services Act 1995.

Larry was a member of the Board of Management of Kellock Lodge Alexandra Inc. from 1998 to 2009, Chairman of the Board of Management of the Outdoor Education Group in 2009 and 2013, and an Alexandra Football and Netball Club Committee Member from 1982 to 1988.

After completing initial Registered Nurse training in 1984 Jo has worked across a range of rural health services in a clinical and management capacity. This included managing the Operating Theatre at Alexandra District Hospital before entering the field of Health Service management at Omeo District Health in 2007. This was also Jo’s first experience working and managing residential aged care (as part of a multi-faceted health service).

In 2011 Jo returned to the Alexandra district as CEO/Director of Nursing (CEO/DON) at Darlingford Upper Goulburn Nursing Home at Eildon, then later took on the relieving CEO/DON role at Alexandra District Health on two separate occasions until June 2015. During this period Jo also served on the Ambulance Victoria Board for over 3 years.

Jo and her family have resided in the Alexandra district since 1995 (apart from 5 years in Omeo), so returning to her local community as CEO/DON of Kellock Lodge in February 2019 has enabled Jo to contribute significantly to the ongoing development of our community owned and operated Kellock Lodge Alexandra Inc.
