The region’s peak leadership program has announced the appointment of a new Executive Officer.

Warrnambool’s Kate Roache will take the helm of Leadership Great South Coast Inc. in early January.

Ms Roache replaces long-standing Executive Officer Amanda Hennessy who has taken up the role of Warrnambool and District Foodshare Chief Executive.

Leadership Great South Coast Chair Karen Foster said Ms Roache, who was a graduate of the program, brought rich leadership experience to the role.

“Kate completed the Leadership Great South Coast program in 2019, which gives her excellent insight into the region and also our program,” Ms Foster said.

“She also brings indepth leadership and education experience generally, with her career thus far traversing roles that range from Deputy Principal and Curriculum Consultant to her most recent role as Executive Officer with Beyond the Bell.”

Ms Roache, who grew up in the region before pursuing her career in education and leadership throughout in Australia, said she was excited to be joining the LGSC team.

“I’m looking forward to the 2022 program, to meeting the participants and partners and exploring all things leadership across the region,” she said.

“Being an alumni, I feel I can bring that experience and insight as we pursue future opportunities for the program.”
