SPELD Victoria Announces Acting Chief Executive Officer

Message from the SPELD Victoria board November 2014 

The SPELD Victoria board is excited to announce that we have appointed Clare Carmody as the organisation’s Acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO), effective December 1, 2014. Board President Jason Henham’s role as interim-CEO will end at that time. The Acting period is expected to be for 6 months.

Clare joined us in June of this year as our Operations Manager, a role that required transformation in how we communicate and engage with all of our stakeholders, along with a focus on how to deliver our services to more of those that need it. Following the departure of our CEO in August, Clare was asked to carry some of the responsibilities associated with that role, including the development of our shared vision and strategy, which is to be published next week. The support Clare has gathered for our strategy, her ability to garner support from experts within and without SPELD and her commitment to serving children and families were some of the things that convinced us appointing her as Acting CEO was a smart choice for where SPELD is today.

We’re excited that Clare has chosen to commit this part of her career to SPELD Victoria. The board and I will provide whatever support required in helping her succeed in this role, for the benefit of the children and families we serve.

Please welcome Clare as our Acting CEO!

Jason Henham, President, SPELD Victoria
