Susan Rooney will join the St Vincent de Paul Society WA in May as the organisation’s new chief executive, having spent the past 15 years leading the Cancer Council WA.

Vinnie’s today announced the appointment of Ms Rooney, who will take over the role from acting chief executive Adele Stewart on May 8.

Ms Stewart was appointed as interim chief executive in January following the departure of Mark Fitzpatrick, who is now the chief executive of Telethon Speech & Hearing Centre for Children WA.

Vinnie’s state president Bob Burns said Ms Rooney had a great deal of experience in the not-for-profit sector having been the chief executive for the Cancer Council WA for more than a decade.

“Susan has held senior management and board positions in a range of non-government and government organisations throughout Australia,” Mr Burns said.

“We are looking forward to having Susan come on board and continue St Vincent de Paul Society’s commitment to helping people in the community experiencing hardship.”

Cancer Council WA will welcome new chief executive Ashley Reid, who will leave his current position with Ngala, on May 8.
