Ms Susie Hargreaves joins SDC Council

The Society has appointed Susie Hargreaves as its new chief executive. She takes over following the retirement of Ken McGhee at the end this month. Susie joins the Society from CultureWorks UK, a company she founded in 2002 specialising in business development, marketing and events management. Prior to setting up CultureWorks UK, Susie was the first chief executive of Audiences Yorkshire.

For the past 11 years, SDC Council has empowered Ken McGhee in the role of chief executive to create a modern, forward looking Society capable of surviving and prospering in the 21st century. In his time in office, many challenges have been addressed during a period characterised by unprecedented change, increasing globalisation, advances in technology and, perhaps most significantly, unparalleled demands and time pressures on Society members in the workplace.

When Susie takes over the role, she will bring to the Society considerable experience and expertise in finance, management and marketing. In her career to date, she has enjoyed significant success in helping to build the reputation, influence and achievements of several household name organisations.

'Whilst respecting its history and traditions, Susie will bring to the Society the skills and qualities necessary to lead the SDC in the challenging times ahead,' says SDC honorary secretary, Peter Duffield. 'We have an ambitious agenda and Susie will help us gain greater recognition and support for our aims and objectives in the coming months and years.'

Comments Susie, 'I am delighted to be joining the SDC at such an important time in its future development. I'm excited by the prospect of working with the team – both staff and trustees – to build on recent successes and ensure it is a thriving and sustainable 21st century organisation.'

Nominated as a finalist for a 'European Women of Achievement Award' in 2004, Susie was awarded a Clore Leadership Fellowship in 2006. She is a trustee of the Northern Ballet Theatre and a secondary school governor.
