WELCOME TO OUR NEW CEO!

WELCOME TO OUR NEW CEO!

As of today, 27th March, Stephanie Maurel has taken over from Rob Orme as CEO of Concordia.

Stephanie joins Concordia after a 20 year career spanning both the commercial and charity sector.  Much of her commercial career was spent working in the automotive sector both in the UK and abroad concentrating on marketing and financial efficiency including responsibility for pricing. The second half was spent as a civil servant within Sport England, where she held a series of leadership positions including being responsible for ‘People’ – coaches, volunteers, the paid staff and apprentices across the sport and physical activity sector. As a trustee for two charity boards she enjoys giving her time as a volunteer and is also very active as a trained mentor within various networks.

On the personal side home is in north Kent and Stephanie is married with two boys; a nine and 11 year-old. She is keen on most outdoor sports, especially playing hockey and running as well as rambling and visiting old properties.

Stephanie is thrilled to be taking on the role of CEO at Concordia and is joining the charity at a very exciting time. She is looking forward to building on the solid foundations that are already in place.
