The St Vincent de Paul Society National Council has welcomed Toby oConnor as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Announcing Mr oConnor’s appointment in March, National Council President Claire Victory said: ‘The National Council is delighted to welcome Toby to the St Vincent de Paul Society and believes he is ideally experienced to lead our organisation through its next exciting phase.
‘Toby’s skills, experience and leadership will build on the Society’s strong history of achieving positive change for people experiencing poverty and disadvantage.’
For more than 35 years Mr oConnor has demonstrated a commitment to achieving socially just outcomes for Australians excluded from fully participating in the life of their local community.
He brings extensive leadership, governance and management experience to the role, working in executive roles in the private, government and not-for-profit sectors at both federal and state levels.
‘It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I accept the role of CEO and I look forward to working with the members, volunteers and staff contributing positively to the lives of the most marginalised and vulnerable members of our community,’ Mr oConnor said.
