National not-for-profit organisation Youngcare today announced the appointment of new Chief Executive Officer Anthony Ryan.

Mr Ryan has been working in the not-for-profit sector for more than six years, most recently as CEO of the Edmund Rice Foundation where he guided the organisation to a position of significant financial growth.

Youngcare Chairman Nic De Luca said it was important for the organisation to find the right fit as the charity takes steps to pursue an ambitious new business strategy.

“After 10 years of working to ensure young people with high care needs live the lives they deserve, Youngcare is taking steps to reinvigorate our vision and someone with Anthony Ryan’s skills and experience will help lead the organisation through this next important stage,” Mr De Luca said.

“As a small not-for-profit organisation we needed someone who was passionate, committed to the cause and with a strong focus on strategic growth and we’ve found that in Anthony.”

Before joining the Edmund Rice Foundation in 2010, Anthony Ryan was founding Director of the Mimiki Foundation which provides aid and support to marginalised youth in South East Queensland and South Africa.

With a background in teaching, Mr Ryan was Assistant Principal at St Patrick’s College Shorncliffe, before making a career change to take up the role of General Manager of an aviation company.

Mr De Luca thanked Chief Operating Officer Melissa Morrison for stewarding the organisation as interim CEO since August.

Anthony Ryan will commence his appointment with Youngcare on November 21, 2016.
