“We’re delighted to welcome Kirsty as our new Chief Executive. The world as we know it has changed considerably in the wake of Covid-19 and we are excited that Kirsty will guide us to the new world in a way that addresses the ever-changing needs of our communities and our voice in the eco-system. I want to take this opportunity to thank the team for their hard work and dedication to cover the services in the time gap that we were without a CEO. As a team I look forward to seeing it grow in size and impact moving forward. Welcome Kirsty!”
