We are delighted to announce that Leanne Massey will be taking over from Iana Vidal as our new Chair of Trustees.
We were fortunate to have amazing women apply for the role, but Leanne stood out because of her strong leadership skills, extensive experience in people management and ongoing commitment to GFS as an Activity Leader since 2018.
Our current Chair Iana, said of the appointment:
“I’m delighted that Leanne is joining the GFS Board as Chair. Leanne is an inspirational senior leader, with a wealth of expertise in supporting organisations to develop strategic focus and cultural change. Most importantly, she’s a dedicated and well-respected GFS volunteer, and really loves what we do!
I’m excited to work with Leanne and the rest of the team over the next few months to ensure a smooth transition, and look forward to seeing GFS continue to grow under her leadership in the coming years.”
“I am both honoured and delighted to have been asked to join the GFS Board of Trustees as Chair. GFS is lucky to have such a passionate group of trustees, staff and volunteering teams who truly want to make a difference to the lives of girls and young women. Together we are going to achieve great things in the years to come.
I would like to thank Iana for the smooth transition she has planned and I would also like to thank in advance, everyone else who will be involved in my induction and transition into the role of Chair .”
Leanne will spend the coming months undertaking a handover with Iana before taking full responsibility for the role in March 2021.
