Accuro Staff – Who’s Who
Robert Purcell, CEO
Robert spent his early years living in Bishop’s Stortford before setting off to school in Lancashire. A job at Barclays Bank, in London, marked the start of his career followed, in 1987, by a move abroad – where he spent fourteen happy years working for the charity and development sectors in Zimbabwe and South Africa.
He has always been, and is, passionate about enabling the more vulnerable in society to belong, contribute and thrive. So, when he returned to England in 2000 with his wife Cristina and their family, he joined the charity L’Arche in London. From there, he worked for East Herts YMCA (based in Bishop’s Stortford) working firstly as Operations Manager and then for the last thirteen years as CEO.
He is delighted to be able to continue to work in the charity sector at Accuro – and alongside such passionate staff and volunteers. Working together, all members of the team can help to make a real difference in the lives of those they support.
