Following a review of the current executive staffing structure and in order to drive forward the Association’s strategy for the next five to ten years, we are looking to appoint a new Chief Executive Officer as soon as possible, with the current Executive Director, Jackie Weeden, taking over the role of Chief Operating Officer (Finance Director) once the new appointment is made.
The Board of Trustees believes that the new structure will ensure the continuing success of YMCA Bournemouth and make us well-placed to continue to serve our current clients and customers, as well as expanding throughout Dorset in the coming years.
The Trustees wish to reassure our partners that all services are continuing during this period of change and of their complete confidence in the executive team.
The Trustees would also like to announce that Colin Hartland has stepped down from his post as Chairman of the Board of Trustees after the three years permitted by our constitution. They would like to sincerely thank Colin, who remains a member of the Board, for his excellent support and also to welcome our new Chairman, Richard Elms. Richard has been a member of the Board since September 2015 and is looking forward to fulfilling the role of Chair.
