LEADING Cheshire Charity Active Cheshire has formally announced the departure of their long-serving CEO, Anne Boyd.

Anne has led the Charity for 8 years, transforming, rebranding and repositioning the Charity as a leader in its field, locally, nationally and internationally.

Under her leadership, the organisation has strengthened its intelligence capability, diversified its income, strengthened Governance and expanded its influence and customer base. In 2016 Anne spearheaded a Movement To Tackle Inactivity, which secured the support of more than 5000 citizens and stakeholders locally. In recent years the Charity was recognised as ‘Outstanding’ by Sport England, cited as ‘best practice’ by World Health Organisation, secured a ‘World Class’ Net Promoter Score from its customers and won a wide range of industry and charity awards.

This year Anne is one of just 25 people nationally to be recognised by the ‘People’s Honours’ to receive a British Citizen Award, acknowledging her hard work and commitment to the community.

Reflecting on her time at Active Cheshire Anne said:

“It has been a great honour to serve this community and to work alongside such a wide range of committed and creative partners. I am so privileged and proud to have worked with such an incredible staff and Trustee team, whom I will sorely miss.”

Charity Chair Dr. Paul Hancock OBE said:

“We would like to thank Anne for all that she has achieved during her time at Active Cheshire, and we wish her well and good luck for the future.”

Active Cheshire continues its ambition to reduce physical inactivity by 15% by 2040. The Board of Trustees will be seeking to appoint a successor in the New Year.
