Following the resignation of our Chief Executive Officer Suzi Cowcher in late January, our Chief Financial Officer, Darren Cutri, has been appointed Acting Chief Executive Officer.
During her two and a half years with us, Suzi, with the support of the Board, Executive and staff, began a major transformation process in preparation for the many changes that are occurring within our sector. This included developing a new Strategic Plan for the next five years that builds on the strong history of Ability Centre and positions us for a successful future under changed funding and market conditions.
We wish Suzi all the best in her future endeavours and thank her for her efforts whilst leading our organisation.
The Board is confident that Darren’s experience and organisational knowledge, combined with our strong Executive and Management team, will ensure all operations continue smoothly and the incoming Chief Executive Officer is set up for success.
The Board has begun the recruitment process for a new Chief Executive Officer and the position will be advertised in coming weeks.
The recruitment process will involve both a local and national search and we anticipate the process to take several months.
