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.

Places are still available for our North South Preparation day on the 11th June 2016.

If you haven’t made up your mind yet about the project, this day is also a good chance for all those who simply want to know more about the North South Programme.

It is possible to apply for the preparation day only, with the possibility to apply for a project afterwards.

Book your place now – limited places available, first-come first-served basis.

We are officially live!

April is, and always has been, the month of activity. As the days are getting longer (and a little bit warmer!), we are working hard to ensure that volunteers, from the UK as well as overseas, are finding a volunteer project for this summer. I hope that it’s OK to use the words of NCS (make sure to read about their first #MeetUp late last month further down!), and state that we are in for a summer of a lifetime. Enjoy our April Newsletter!
