Appointment of New CEO for Rotarians for Family Health & AIDS Prevention Inc

Dear Friends, Partners and Colleagues,

After a thorough and thoughtful search process we are delighted Sue Paget has agreed to take up the position of CEO. Sue has very relevant business experience and expertise in growing and improving NGO’s through the establishment of streamlined processes with an emphasis on developing public/ private partner partnerships. She is a people and humanitarian centred individual with a strong history of creating highly engaged teams, which ideally suits her to lead in RFHA’s global culture. Sue has excellent fundraising experience and the drive to help us take RFHA to the next level of growth and development. I am personally very pleased that we have been able to attract someone with her calibre, track record and further potential. I look forward to working with her and the Executive Team over the next few years to continue the exceptional growth of our organization.

Sue has been the Programme director of the Rotary Family Health days since its inception in South Africa seven years ago.

Under her leadership and her guidance of an exceptional team of Rotary volunteers, the South Africa programme has reached proof of concept and solidified valuable partnerships with Government and private sector partners in South African society and in early 2018 Sue was named Executive Director of the RFHA South Africa NPC, with a further increase in responsibilities and countries to oversee. The ability to build partnerships maintain relationships and manage the only national campaign for inclusion of all Rotary Clubs within the country, featured highly in her successful leadership on the Executive Team for RFHA. The combination of her experience, drive and values make her an ideal fit for RFHA’s next stages of growth.

Sue’s first connection with Rotary was in 2000 when she was contracted by Rotary International to work in South Africa on the Polio Eradication Private Sector Campaign working with Rotary leadership and corporations in South Africa.  Subsequently she was invited to join the Rotary Club of Johannesburg in 2002 as a volunteer and over the years, worked on various campaigns in a project management capacity, including: Co-ordination of the National Deaf Awareness Campaign , Project Manager of the Presidential Conference on Health Concerns for Rotary International President, Jonathan Majiyagbe, member of the project management team for RI Presidential Conference for President DK Lee and the Project Manager for the Rotary Centennial Celebrations in Johannesburg. 

Sue is currently a member of the E Club of D9400, South Africa.
 
Commenting on her new role Sue added, "RFHA is an established organisation, with a wonderful team of global Board Members with whom I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside for 7 years. I look forward to our growth in this next year as we expand our Health Day programme into more countries, and the opportunity to lead us into the future with like-minded partnerships seeking to advance the mission of saving and improving lives in the communities we serve."
