Lorraine Baker, who has been our CEO for the last year, is leaving us today to pursue her career in pastures new. Over the last 12 months she has made an enormous contribution to Accuro bringing with her an immense amount of expertise from which we have benefited greatly. We wish Lorraine every success in the future and the Board & I thank her for her considerable efforts in the time she was with us.
We have started our search for Lorraine’s replacement, but that will inevitably take a little time. So, for the time being while the recruitment process runs its course, David McConnell will step down as Chair of Trustees and become Interim CEO and David Lister will become Chair of Trustees. This was decided at Tuesday’s Board Meeting and will take place with immediate effect.
We would also like to welcome Amanda Campbell, who becomes a Member of the Board of Trustees.
As ever, we are most grateful to our staff and volunteers for their commitment to Accuro, its Members and their families, and also very grateful to the families who support us so enthusiastically!
