Dorset Mind appoints new CEO to fight for better mental health in Dorset through collaborative approach.
After four successful years as Chief Executive of Dorset Mind, Marianne Storey has announced her retirement. Over this period the charity has grown exponentially under her leadership, positively impacting many people across Dorset needing help. We wish her the very best in the future and thank her for her significant achievements.
We are extremely pleased to announce the appointment of Linda O’Sullivan as Marianne’s successor. Linda has extensive third sector experience having worked in many charities across the country. She joins us from The Alzheimer’s Society, where she had responsibility for London and the South East regions.
An new CEO
Linda O’Sullivan, newly appointed CEO of Dorset Mind, explains:
“I am delighted to have been appointed as CEO and am very much looking forward to building on the phenomenal successes already achieved at Dorset Mind.
I believe that a key priority for our charity in the next few years is to enhance our reach across Dorset and continue to develop services that ensure we fulfill our vision. Our mission is to continue providing support for people across Dorset that need help with their mental health & wellbeing. We cannot achieve this alone.
To address these challenges facing us all, we very much need to take a ‘Together is better’ stance; therefore, I am looking forward to connecting with all stakeholders across Dorset, who share our vision through collaboration, partnership and community engagement.”
Our Board welcomes Linda
Ken Heap, Chair of the Dorset Mind Trustee Board, comments:
“I am delighted that Linda has joined us, bringing a great deal of knowledge and experience to the role. I am sure she will both build on the best of the past and launch us forward in this ever-changing world. Good mental health has never been more necessary.”
Dorset Mind warmly welcomes Linda and looks forward to an exciting future under her guidance, at a pivotal time for mental health services in Dorset.
