New leader for Food Share
LGSC Media Release 24 August 2021
After nine years at the helm of Leadership Great South Coast (LGSC), Amanda Hennessy has this week announced she is taking up a new challenge as Warrnambool and District Food Share’s new Executive Officer.
Ms Hennessy will remain in the LGSC Executive Officer role part-time until the end of 2021, splitting her time between the two organisations.
In 2022, she plans to step up her volunteer involvement with start-up Loved & Shared – a not-for-profit organisation based on the highly successful St Kilda Mums model.
LGSC Board Chair Karen Foster said Amanda had been instrumental in shaping the regional leadership program since its inception nine years ago.
“In her time as our Executive Officer, Amanda has built and shaped the program into a truly life-changing experience for the more than 150 leaders who have thus far graduated from Leadership Great South Coast,” Ms Foster said.
“We are in the strong position we are today in no small part due to her professionalism, her drive and her complete dedication to her work.
“Amanda will be greatly missed, but our Board also appreciates that this is an exciting opportunity for her to continue with her influential community work.”
Ms Hennessy said she was excited to take up the challenge of spearheading the increasingly important work of Food Share across the region.
“I am passionate about supporting our region into the Covid-19 recovery phase and I’m looking forward to doing this in my new role at Food Share.”
Ms Hennessy officially steps into the role on September 1. LGSC is set to embark upon a search for her replacement this month.
