I’m excited to announce Jo Kelly has joined Good2Give as our first ever Chief Customer Officer. Jo joins us from UBank where she was Chief Marketing Officer for the last three and half years. Prior to UBank, Jo held a number of senior roles across the finance, insurance, manufacturing, telecommunications, advertising and creative sectors. Jo led large scale sales teams in her role leading the retail bank at Bank of New Zealand and has led teams looking after customer success.
This role replaces the current Head of Client and Charity Relations, held by Kerry Brooker, as well as the Head of Marketing Communications, as Elena Mace has decided not to return from maternity leave. We wish Kerry and El all the very best, and thank them for their contributions to Good2Give over the years.
Our long-standing CFO and Company Secretary, Richard New, recently retired after 6 years with Good2Give. Replacing Richard is Paul Harris, who has more than 30 years’ experience across the commercial and private sectors as well as extensive experience in the NFP sector, having spent nearly 6 years in an executive role at the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children.
Jo and Paul join Jared Ortlipp, our Chief Technology Officer and myself on our Executive Team. These changes set Good2Give up for further success as we strive for our next stage of growth to deliver $300 million to charitable communities across Australia and New Zealand by 2022.
