Sanctuary Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Craig Moule has been appointed Group Chief Executive following David Bennett’s decision to retire.
Craig, who has been CFO since 2013, will take up his new role on January 1, 2019.
Jonathan Lander, Group Chair, said: “I am delighted that Craig has agreed to become our new Group Chief Executive. Craig has worked at Sanctuary since 1989 and has contributed greatly to the organisation’s accomplishments since that time.”
Craig added: “I am proud to be Sanctuary’s next Group Chief Executive, and look forward to working with the Board and senior team to ensure the continued success of the organisation.
“I would also like to thank David as without him Sanctuary would not be in the strong position it is now, with the financial stability to deliver our charitable objectives of providing housing and care to those who need it most.”
Outgoing Chief Executive David has led Sanctuary since 1991 having joined the business in 1986.
Jonathan added: “Thanks to David’s astute and visionary leadership Sanctuary is one of the UK’s principal housing and care providers, having grown from one with a turnover of £22 million and employing 628 people in 1991, to one which now has a turnover of £728 million and employs more than 13,000.
“David leaves an excellent legacy for Craig to build on. On behalf of the Board I would like to sincerely thank David for his dedicated service and commitment to Sanctuary.”
