Orchard Trust appoints new CEO

Posted by TB on 22 February 2017

The Orchard Trust is please to announce that after an exhaustive recruitment process, Cathy Andrews (Head of Finance and HR) has been appointed as CEO of the Trust with immediate effect.

Cathy joined the Trust in 2014 heading up the Finance function but has subsequently taken on responsibility for Human Resources, Training and the development of the Stowfield site.  

Nick Budd Chair of Trustees said " The Trustees were impressed by Cathy's passion and knowledge of the Trust and feel that she will be able to lead the organisation into the sustainable future we desire.  I know everyone at the Orchard Trust will join me in congratulating Cathy and will give her all the support she needs and deserves in this new and challenging role".



Cathy says "I am delighted to have been chosen to lead this kind, caring and supportive organisation.  During my time with the Trust so far I fully recognise the quality of work carried out by our staff to provide and maintain the high level of care, support and independence our service users enjoy every day.  As CEO my work will ensure the Trust continues to develop sustainably, growing to meet a wider range of needs through diversification of the Stowfield site while keeping quality of care at the centre of all decisions.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who support the Trust and look forward to working with you all as we continue our journey."
