The Hobart City Mission Board announced at their AGM yesterday, the successful appointment of their new Chief Executive Officer, Mr John Stubley.
Outgoing CEO, Garry Fletcher welcomes the hand over saying, “Mr Stubley’s background is finance and accounting with experience both at a professional and Board level as well as a volunteer within the welfare sector. Mr Stubley comes to us from another not-for-profit and I for one look forward to what he can do to progress and better standing on the firm foundation of 161 years of caring for the most vulnerable in our City. It is an exciting, but difficult, time for charities like the Hobart City Mission, but I am certain that this new appointment is a step in the right direction.”
When asked what he will do with his free time, Mr Fletcher says he will be “heading to Scotland for a much needed rest after five years at the helm” and he has enjoyed his time working with Hobart’s oldest charity.
Mr Fletcher completes his tenure at the end of November 2013 with Mr Stubley taking on the job from December 2013. Mr Stubley says he is “looking forward to it.”
