The Board of Trustees are pleased to announce the formal appointment of Shelley Brown as the new Chief Executive Officer of Age UK Mid Mersey.
Confirming the appointment, Pete Stubbs, Chair of Trustees for Age UK Mid Mersey, said:
“On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I’m delighted to welcome Shelley to the role of CEO. Shelley has been a key part of the Senior Management Team since her promotion to Head of HR & Finance in 2018 and we are particularly proud to have been able to appoint our new CEO from within the organisation. Having stepped into the role of Acting CEO after the departure of former CEO, Mark Lunney, Shelley has already made an impact, working collaboratively with her team to strengthen partnerships and drive forward new projects.
“The Charity is at an exciting crossroads following the closure of its trading company and the decision to sell The Mansion House, and the Board are confident that Shelley is the right person to take the Charity forward to its next chapter, sustaining and developing Age UK Mid Mersey’s vital services for older people.”
Shelley joined Age UK Mid Mersey (formally Age Concern Halton) 18 years ago and her progression is testament to her hard work and dedication alongside the charities vision and values. Her promotion highlights the possibilities for ambitious team members who are keen to progress their careers and play a strong role in the organisation’s continued success.
Speaking on her appointment, Shelley said:
“Becoming CEO of Age UK Mid Mersey is both an honour and a privilege. I am proud to work within the Age UK brand and passionate about the work we do to support older people – you could say after so many years it is in my DNA.
“I’m looking forward to working closely with our Board of Trustees, staff and volunteers to realise our growth aspirations for the Charity and to continue to offer high quality services for older people."
