Alex Ramamurthy is to step down as Chief Executive Officer of The Care Workers Charity (CWC) from the end of this month.
Alex, who will be replaced by Richard Muncaster, leaves after his transformation of the CWC over the past two years culminated in it winning Change Project of the Year and being shortlisted for Charity of the Year at the 2018 Charity Times Awards.
“I’m stepping down to make way for an exceptional person to lead the team through its next growth phase,” said Alex.
“We have found that person in Richard Muncaster and I am pleased to welcome him to the team. I’d like to thank all of our supporters who believed in our renewed vision and joined us on a two-year journey that has seen CWC resurrected and completely transformed.”
Alex will join the Board as Trustee and will support CWC through a six-month transition period in a part-time consultancy role.
He will then move on his own start-up venture; a booking platform which will allow care homes to rent out their communal space to host adult day clubs. The business will bring older adults from the community into care homes addressing loneliness and social isolation, whilst generating new revenue streams for care homes.
Richard brings over 20 years’ experience in the voluntary sector, leading teams in a variety of income generation, marketing, programme delivery, volunteering, communications, policy and campaigning roles.
