James Voller appointed as Deputy CEO

We are delighted to announce that we have appointed James Voller as Deputy CEO of Freshwinds in addition to his current responsibilities as Director of Development, HR and Finance. This is in keeping with our Board-approved succession planning. James has been at Freshwinds for nearly 7 years and has shown outstanding dedication to the organisation and to the clients and citizens that we serve.

This forms one of a number of changes which will see the expansion of our Management team. Indeed this has already begun with the appointment of Mr Ian Dalton as Operations Manager and we will shortly be recruiting both a Business Development Manager as well as a Senior Trusts and Corporate Fundraiser. This is to augment the functions of the Senior Management team as our new work develops and expands, especially in relation to our major international funding.

“I am honoured to serve as the Deputy CEO of Freshwinds in what is to be a very exciting and positively challenging time for the organisation. I am sure that together with my fellow Directors, Managers and all our staff and volunteers we can continue to provide excellent services and make a significant difference to the lives of Birmingham’s citizens. I would like to thank Mohammed Al-Rahim and all the Board of Trustees for their faith in me and for their continuing support over many years and, I am sure, into the future.”

James Voller, 2016
