Changes in Senior Leadership Team

Last updated: 1.46pm, Monday 5th August 2013 by

There have been many changes at Hansel over the last year or so, not least in the Senior Leadership Team. Gerry Lindsay took on the Managing Director role early in 2012 and Ali Mundell joined us as HR Manager in April this year. And now we have changes in roles for both Blanche Nicolson and Roddy Wright.

Blanche, who has worked for Hansel for most of her working life, starting as a volunteer Governor and later taking on a paid role heading up care services, is now in the latter part of her Hansel journey with retirement just over the horizon!

As part of the succession planning for this, Roddy has recently taken on the role of Operations Director, and so now takes the lead in all operational and developmental support-related activities. At the same time Blanche has taken on a new role as Practice Development Director. This will allow us to continue to benefit from her huge wealth of knowledge, skills and experience as she further develops and shares best practice across the organisation.

We wish them both well in their new roles which will make Hansel stronger for the challenges ahead.
