Joint Chief Execs to start in September

Monday, 13 August 2018

Woodcraft Folk is pleased to announce the appointment of Sarah Welsh as our new Director of Operations & Finance. Sarah will also serve as Joint Chief Executive Officer (CEO) alongside Debs McCahon, our Director of Development. Debs and Sarah will start their new roles at the beginning of September with outgoing CEO (also known as the General Secretary), Jon Nott, supporting the transition to the new leadership team until the end of the month.

Sarah has previously held similar roles at Friends of the Earth, the National Council for Voluntary Organisations and War Child. She was also a volunteer leader and District Co-ordinator with Hackney Woodcraft Folk.

Debs has been Woodcraft Folk's Director of Development since 2013, having been our Membership Development Manager for the five years prior to that.

Sarah says, "I am very much looking forward to being involved again with Woodcraft Folk and in the new role of Joint CEO. I am passionate about what Woodcraft Folk offers children and young people, while having fun and building their awareness of the world around them."
