Meet our new Chair of Trustees

posted in: News | 1

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.”

Leanne said:

“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.

    I look forward to meeting with you at the AGM. As chair of the North East England committee I would like to extend a warm welcome to you from all our volunteers in this region. it would be great to meet with you at one of our regional meetings; which would give you a snapshot of the way we work together as a team with the girls at the centre of our planning.
