Dear Friends and Supporters of Women’s Health Goulburn North East,

I refer to my recent communication in which I announced that our highly regarded Executive Officer, Susie Reid, has decided to retire in June this year.

The Board of Women’s Health Goulburn North East has undertaken the recruitment of a new Chief Executive Officer with the assistance of Human Resources specialist Marita Ryan. The process has been very rigorous and we were fortunate to have a number of very highly qualified applicants for the role.

Our HR selection committee was assisted by Helen Riseborough, CEO of Women’s Health in the North, who was on the panel for our first round interviews.

After much careful consideration, the Board has appointed Amanda Kelly to the role of CEO of WHGNE.

Amanda is the current CEO of Girl Guides Victoria, a feminist organisation working with girls and women across metropolitan and regional Victoria. Amanda has a number of years’ experience at CEO level and a professional background in Business and Accounting.

We anticipate that Amanda will join WHGNE on or about 15 July 2019. Amanda is very excited about the new challenge and is looking forward to continuing the fantastic work that the organisation has undertaken under Susie’s leadership.

Kind regards,
Sarah Noble
WHGNE Board Chairperson
