First SAFE ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer named

Pilbara News - - Business -

Lo­cal an­i­mal res­cue or­gan­i­sa­tion SAFE has em­ployed its first ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, Anne Box­hall.

Ms Box­hall, with founder Sue Hed­ley, hopes to de­velop a solid busi­ness strat­egy for SAFE to ex­pand the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

“We’re look­ing at a whole new struc­ture for SAFE HQ,” she said.

“We want to move on from a man­age­ment com­mit­tee to a board of cor­po­rate vol­un­teers.”

SAFE will be re­cruit­ing peo­ple with a spe­cific skills to tackle tasks such as strat­egy plan­ning, mar­ket­ing, ac­count­ing and com­ply­ing with govern­ment reg­u­la­tions.

Ms Box­hall will be work­ing from her home­town of Hobart but Ms Hed­ley doesn’t be­lieve it will be a prob­lem. “With tech­nol­ogy now, it’s the same as hav­ing some­one here,” she said.

SAFE’s long-term goal is to en­cour­age a shift in think­ing about an­i­mal res­cue, to move to­wards the foster care sys­tem.
