A New Leader for Age Concern New Zealand

A New Leader for Age Concern New Zealand

Age Concern New Zealand is to have a new Chief Executive. Robyn Scott has been appointed to take up the position at the end of April.

Robyn has fifteen years’ leadership experience in the community and voluntary sector including 10 years as CEO of Philanthropy New Zealand and an earlier career in the education sector. She is moving from her current senior role in the Commission of Financial Literacy and Retirement Income.

“Robyn’s demonstrated leadership skills, strong relationship management and strategic and financial acumen will be of great value to the organisation as we continue to bring older people and their issues to a greater level of New Zealand’s consciousness and to build our service provision”, National President Evelyn Weir said today.

“Robyn also has the ability to lead the organisation in a significantly changing social and economic environment”, Mrs Weir added. “Age Concern expects to play a lead role in how, as a society, New Zealand responds to an ageing population and tackles issues such as older people’s well-being, health care, social support and retirement income.”

As the new Chief Executive Robyn will be working with the Board, staff and the Age Concern network to ensure the organisation remains well positioned to represent the interests of a growing group of New Zealanders and to help shape the environment for current and future generations of older people.
