New CEO for Scouts NSW
Scouts NSW has announced the appointment of its new Chief Executive Officer Jane Siebum – the organisation’s first ever female CEO.
Having been appointed to the role on an acting basis in December 2018 following the departure of Andrew Smith AM, Siebum was officially announced as the CEO on Friday March 29.
She brings to the role more than 25 years’ experience, having worked at a senior level for companies such as Optus, Allianz, Volkswagen and Vodafone, as well as with TAFE and the Department of Education.
Siebum developed her passion for Not for Profits following her experience as a Director for Women’s Justice Network and President of the Bowen Pastoral Agricultural Society, and has been working with Scouts since August 2017, when she joined the team as Head of Business Transformation.
Speaking on her appointment, Siebum said, “I’m incredibly proud to be announced as the new CEO of Scouts NSW.
“I really believe in Scouts and its values which resonate with me personally. I’m looking forward to working closely with our Chief Commissioner and the Board to build a brighter future for Scouts NSW and all its members,” she said.
“As I begin my tenure, I’d also like to express my sincere thanks to Andrew Smith who laid a great foundation upon which to build.”
Welcoming the appointment, Chair of the Board Kerry McGoldrick said, “Jane brings a wealth of experience to the role of CEO. She is a proven senior executive and her experience in leading the business transformation at Scouts NSW over the last 18 months will be invaluable.”
