Reuben Coulter CEO will step down in August – 27 Mar 2012
Statement from the Chair of the Board
I am writing to let you know that Reuben Coulter will be stepping down as Chief Executive of Tearfund Ireland in August. We will shortly start to recruit for a new Chief Executive. (Vacancy details here) I write with a feeling of sadness that Reuben is leaving, but also with a sense of anticipation, as we move into a new phase in our journey.
Reuben has been our first Chief Executive and we have travelled a long way under his inspirational leadership. I would like to take this opportunity to thank him publicly for all that he has invested, both personally and professionally.
I would also like to thank you for being part of this journey too. You have prayed and given sacrificially. In the past year, our income has increased to more than €800,000 which is a real miracle in such challenging times. This generous support has enabled us to provide emergency relief to people affected by the famine in East Africa and to support poverty-stricken people through churches in seven countries.
But there is so much more to be done. As Tearfund Ireland seeks to build on its achievements to date, we are looking for a new Chief Executive – a leader of vision and character. We would like to ask for your help. If you know anyone who might be suitable, please can you let them know about this vacancy .
Dr. David Weakliam
Chair of the Board
