Michael Parker arrives this month, and is well prepared to lead the organisation as our new Chief Executive.
Michael has been the Chief Executive of a sister Presbyterian Support organisation in the South Island since 2003. He brings significant knowledge of the unique challenges and opportunities that we face, and is familiar with the Otago region.
Michael described his personal philosophy as "grounded in belief that we should all be actively involved in supporting each other, and our communities, to be resilient and safe environments for families and children to live, work and grow in - regardless of age, health, or social status."
Over the next few weeks Michael will begin to tour Otago, meeting our people and our supporters. You will get to know Michael a little more in the next edition of People.
