Lead­er­ship change at Rocky Bay

POST Newspapers - - Community News -

It was the end of an era for Mos­man Park dis­abil­ity ser­vices provider Rocky Bay last month, with chair­man Gra­ham McHar­rie an­nounc­ing his res­ig­na­tion from the board af­ter seven years of ser­vice.

Mr McHar­rie chaired the fi­nance and au­dit com­mit­tee be­fore be­ing ap­pointed as board chair in 2013.

He said it had been an hon­our and a plea­sure to rep­re­sent Rocky Bay as chair for the past five years and he was hum­bled by the op­por­tu­nity.

“The work be­ing un­der­taken by Rocky Bay is ab­so­lutely in­spir­ing and it has been a priv­i­lege to work along­side such a pas­sion­ate and ded­i­cated board and wider staff,” he said.

“As Rocky Bay en­ters this next era, I feel this is the right time to step aside and al­low for a new wave of lead­er­ship to guide the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

“I wish Rocky Bay all the best for the fu­ture and I end my term con­fi­dent that it is very well placed to meet the chal­lenges and thrive in the pe­riod ahead.”

The board voted deputy chair Su­san Male in as chair, with im­me­di­ate ef­fect, and Chris Ryan was an­nounced as the new deputy.

Ms Male is Rocky Bay’s long­est-serv­ing board mem­ber and has held the role of deputy chair since 2012.

Trained orig­i­nally as an oc­cu­pa­tional ther­a­pist, she is ex­pe­ri­enced in strate­gic con­sult­ing and ex­ec­u­tive man­age­ment.
