GRG Announcement - CEO Appointment

Following a full review of the governance and management of the Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Trust, the Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the appointment of Kate Bundle as Chief Executive Officer of GRG with immediate effect.

Kate has had extensive and valued involvement with GRG since 1999. Practicing as family lawyer at that time, she represented many grandparents who were raising their grandchildren due to serious problems with their parents. She served on the GRG Board as a Trustee for 14 years until taking up her current communications and business development role in April 2015.

Kate brings extensive experience, deep commitment and clear leadership to GRG at a time of a constantly growing need for the support of grandparents and the children they care for.

Diane Vivian will continue as a Trustee of GRG while relinquishing her executive role. Diane will be recognised as Founding Trustee, marking her unique and devoted service since GRG was established to lead the delivery of member-focused social services for grandparents raising and caring for their grandchildren.

Jo Thomas

Board Chair
