WCVA reveals next chief executive

Charity

The Wales Council for Voluntary Action has appointed the head of the homelessness charity The Wallich as its next chief executive. 

The membership body announced today that Lindsay Cordery-Bruce will succeed Ruth Marks in May. 

Marks announced in November that she would retire after nine years in the role. 

Cordery-Bruce, who has been at The Wallich for the past six years, previously worked in the field of substance misuse and at the Probation Service. 

She was on the board of the WCVA for eight years until November and has a doctorate in applied psychology. 

Neil Wooding, chair of the WCVA, said Cordery-Bruce would be a “fitting successor” to Marks.  

“Lindsay brings a wealth of experience as a charity CEO and leader,” he said. 

“Her passion for the voluntary sector shines through and her leadership style aligns with our values to trust and empower our staff to support the sector.

“Lindsay joins the organisation at the start of our 90th anniversary year and at a time when the voluntary sector needs WCVA to champion our cause with partners across Wales and the UK more than ever before.”

Cordery-Bruce said: “The voluntary sector faces so many challenges and opportunities ahead, which we’ll meet head-on with innovation and passion.

“I have unwavering belief that the answers to the problems we face in Wales are already within our communities and can be harnessed through co-production and community involvement.

“This will be a big change for me and I have a lot to learn, but I feel confident we can continue to take WCVA from strength to strength with collaboration and partnership.”
