Chas Jacobsen, Founder

Chas, the founder of The Village Glen, still offers the same vision, drive and creativity that he has provided since the inception of the Village in 1980.  He brings this passion to the development of Ti Tree in delivering to the Mornington Peninsula a new benchmark in residential age care for our older Australians.

Chas’ love of the Mornington Peninsula, where he has resided for some 50 years, led to the commencement of the Village Glen and more recently Ti Tree.  As an industry leader and innovator, Chas  believes elderly retirees requiring residential care deserve to do so in style and comfort, and  Ti Tree was born.

Peter Nilsson, CEO

Peter joined Chas and the Village Glen in April 1993 as the General Manager of the Chas Jacobsen Group of companies.  As CEO Peter has an overall management role of both the Village Glen and Ti Tree.  He brought with him a wealth of experience in business management and customer service.  He has been instrumental to the growth of the business and continues to provide a compassionate understanding of the needs of all Village residents and Ti Tree guests. 

Peter is responsible for the marketing and sales, and budgets, of both the Village Glen and Ti Tree facilities.  Residents and their families are able to talk with Peter about any issue including their future care needs. 

AS a CEO, Peter is responsible for leading the organisation and support its key personnel to continue on Chas’s journey and become an industry leader in residential aged care services.
