Anne Griffin has informed the Board of her decision to step down as CEO of Scouting Ireland.
Anne was the first female to be appointed CEO of Scouting in 2019. Regretfully she was forced to step back from her position due to ill health and, as her recuperation continues, she has agreed with the Board that it is in the best interests of scouting that a new CEO is appointed to grow and lead the organisation into the future.
Anne Griffin said;
“Scouting Ireland is a fantastic organisation which plays a central role in the lives of young people in towns and villages throughout Ireland. I was privileged to lead Scouting Ireland as CEO and deeply regret that ill health prevented me from achieving more on behalf of members, volunteers and staff. I will always be a strong supporter of Scouting Ireland and I wish the team in Larch Hill and members throughout the country continued success into the future.
Ned Brennan, Chair of Scouting Ireland said;
“We are disappointed for Anne and we hope that she continues to make a good recovery. We thank her for her commitment and the energy she brought to Scouting Ireland during her tenure as CEO and on behalf of the board, staff, volunteers and members, I offer her our best wishes for a happy and healthy future.”
The recruitment process for new CEO will take place immediately.
Yours in Scouting,
