ALISTAIR Mackintosh, Chair of Trustees, has announced the appointment of Ryan Campbell CBE to be the new Chief Executive Officer of Treloar’s. This follows a rigorous selection process overseen by a group of Trustees, who are also Governors of the School and College, and supported by Treloar’s Head of HR.
Ryan Campbell has worked extensively in the charity sector. Since 2015, Ryan has been the CEO of Demelza Hospice Care for Children, which offers palliative care for children and young people with serious and terminal conditions across South East England. Prior to this, he was CEO of an organisation providing clinical, mental health and substance misuse services to young people and adults, under contract to Local Authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups. He has also worked in senior positions for RAPT, a provider of drug and alcohol rehabilitation services in the criminal justice system, and for Age Concern. From 2006-2018 Ryan was a Trustee of Mind, the leading mental health charity, and was their Chair of Trustees from 2012-2018. In 2018, he was awarded a CBE for services to mental health provision.
Ryan has commented:
“The Treloar Trust is at the forefront of providing educational and life opportunities for young people with complex disability. It is a vitally important organisation, not only for the students who attend the school and college or receive support in other ways but nationally. Treloar’s shows what can and should be done to enable people with disability to achieve their potential.
“As far as I am concerned, there is no better job than to lead Treloar’s into its next phase. I look forward to being inspired by the children, young people and young adults, and the amazing staff, volunteers and supporters who work alongside them.”
Alastair has commented:
“As CEO, Ryan will have overall responsibility for all the activities of the Trust and the School and College and for taking forward the implementation and delivery of our new ten-year strategy. We look forward very much to welcoming Ryan as CEO, and I know that he is looking forward to meeting everyone involved with Treloar’s.”
Ryan will take up the post on the 7th of June, 2021.
