CASBA are delighted to announce that after a stringent selection process we have appointed a new CEO, who will be taking up the post in mid January.
Ginny Cullen impressed our staff, Ambassadors and Trustees in the interviews which took place last month and we can't wait for her to start. Our thanks must also go to interim Executive Manager, Rob Legge, who has held the fort over a very tricky 15 months and will be leaving us in an excellent position to move forward with funding secured for a number of new projects.
On her appointment, Ginny said:
"I’ve worked in the charity sector for the last ten years helping people get equal chances in life. I’m inspired by CASBA and the work the organisation does to ensure people can express their views, make their choices, secure their rights, and be valued as citizens. I am absolutely delighted to be joining as CASBA’s new CEO to play my part in shaping the charity’s future, building on recent successes and working to ensure CASBA becomes ever more sustainable.
I’ve worked as a fundraiser and manager in national, regional, and local charities, the largest being a Birmingham charity with an income of £8million which I loved so much I stayed for nearly six years. It's great to be coming back to Birmingham. Before my career in the third sector, I worked in advertising, marketing, and journalism. I was a broadcast journalist for the BBC for 3 years working in local radio.
I am looking forward to working alongside the many passionate people who contribute to CASBA; Ambassadors, staff, volunteers, partners, and other stakeholders to empower people, change mindsets, and influence systems. I am excited to be taking up this role, and I can’t wait to get started in early 2022."
