Leadership change ahead

I very much regret to announce that our Executive Director, Dr Christina Howard, has advised that she will be leaving the Todd Foundation at the end of this year.

Christina is moving north to Waihi where she and her partner have purchased a lifestyle property. Her future plans include remaining actively engaged with the philanthropic and community sectors, offering consultancy services with a focus on strategy and systems change.

Christina has been an outstanding member of our team since she joined us in 2010. Under her leadership over the last four and a half years the Foundation has grown from strength to strength and it is with utmost regret that I have accepted her letter of resignation.

The Trustees are instigating a recruitment process to identify her successor and more information will be available about this over the coming months.  With our new strategy in place, a strong board and an excellent team, the Foundation is well positioned to move forward under new leadership.

I am sure you will join me in wishing Christina all the best for her next steps.
