This morning Aveo confirmed Mr Macintosh - a former director of the Retirement Village Association of Australia - had now resigned from the company.

"Until yesterday, Aveo Group was not aware of the charges laid against Mr Macintosh," a company spokesman said.

"Aveo Group is distressed and disappointed at the alleged incidents concerning Mr Macintosh. He has tendered his resignation to the company today and is no longer an employee of Aveo Group.

"Aveo will continue to extend its support to Mr Macintosh for help that he may require.
